The nagging back injury that looked set to hold Tiger Woods out of the PGA Championship may not have been as serious as first anticipated as the world number ten says he will definitely compete in the tournament.

Woods had withdrawn from the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday leaving the American ace only a few days to recover for the upcoming final major of the season.

Woods was predicted to return to Valhalla Golf Club this week for the PGA Championship, the last time he captured this particular major was way back in 2007 when the tournament was held Southern Hills Country Club, Oklahoma.

He was asked during a small press conference whether he would play in the competition beginning on Thursday, his definitive response was 'yes'.

Golf Channel's Tiger Tracker revealed via Twitter when Woods' actually made his decision, they tweeted: "Made the decision to play yesterday. Once he made that decision he went to hit balls at home to make sure he could handle it."

Mark Steinberg who is the agent of Woods revealed on Sunday that the golfer should not be ruled out of the Championship at that point.

In a text message sent to Bob Harig of, he explained: "Way too early. He has to rest and get treatment and then assess later, Pointless to make that decision now without proper time to give him best chance. Nothing further today, maybe [not] even tomorrow."

According to reports the practice session Woods conducted was not precautionary in any way, the rhythm and intensity of his round resembled a full-out practice rather than a lenient warm-up.

The golf scene isn't quite the same without the allure of the world's most popular golf icon, despite his continuing back troubles the 39-year-old vows to continue to work on his game and aims to get back to the point in which he dominated the outfield.
