LOS ANGELES: It will be no more mister nice guy when Tiger Woods tees up at the Genesis Open starting at Riviera on Thursday (today), the 14-times After spending the past couple of years more a calm and cuddly mentor than a ruthless competitor as he dealt with a potentially career-ending back

It will be no more mister nice guy when Tiger Woods tees up at the Genesis Open starting at Riviera on Thursday, the 14-times major champion said.

After spending the past couple of years more a calm and cuddly mentor than a ruthless competitor as he dealt with a potentially career-ending back injury, Woods is ready to assume his erstwhile role as a steely-eyed assassin.

He will play the first two rounds in Los Angeles this week with Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas, the latter experiencing his first competitive round with Woods.

“I don’t care how they react,” Woods said when asked how he expected today’s young breed to deal with what he hopes is his re-emergence as a serious challenger.

“I’m trying to win a tournament (and) I’m sure they feel the same way but hey it’s winning time.

“I think now they’re starting to see me as a competitor because I’m starting to come back again.

“For a while that wasn’t the case. I was just a person they could bounce ideas off. They would pick my brain, but now it’s more as a playing competitor. We still give the needle and have a whole bunch of fun but also they know I’m playing a tournament and so are they.”

Riviera, where Woods made his PGA Tour debut as a 16-year-old amateur in 1992, is the only course on the PGA Tour where he has played more than 10 tournaments without a victory.

He used to be a regular, competing in what formerly was his hometown event known as the Los Angeles Open 11 times without a victory, before scrubbing the tournament from his schedule after 2006.

Relatively short and tight by modern standards, Riviera did not suit a long-hitting young Woods but he might find it more to his liking now as a 42-year-old with a fused spine, still able to hit the ball a long way, but no further than many of his peers.

You'll get tired just reading about Tiger Woods' daily routine in his prime

  You'll get tired just reading about Tiger Woods' daily routine in his prime You'll get tired just reading about Tiger Woods' daily routine in his primeHaving undergone his fourth back surgery -- a fusion -- last April, however, Woods, 42, admitted on Wednesday that he doesn't have quite the daily routine he used to. However, just listening to him describe a typical day from his prime will probably make you tired. And definitely make you feel like a lazy sack of potatoes.

There was progress but I wasn’t converting that into tournament scores and rankings.” The surname weighed heavily on her psyche. “I knew that if I am able to continue playing golf, I have to enjoy it the way I did when I started. And that’s the feeling I get now every single day .

Former India cricket stars Kapil Dev and Ajay Jadeja are keen golfers who have taken part in competitive events. Former Tamil Nadu skipper S Badrinath, too, is set to make his debut in the Chennai leg of the Mercedes Trophy that tees off at TNGF Cosmo here on Thursday.

Woods is not quite ready to predict a timeline for where his results are headed, despite a respectable tie for 23rd at Torrey Pines three weeks ago in his first appearance of the year.

He will certainly have stiff competition this week from a field headed by world number one and defending champion Dustin Johnson.

“Eventually I’d like to win tournaments,” Woods said.

“I am trying to get through that process to get to that point.

"I’m making small, subtle changes in my posture and my swing because I’m starting to understand my body a little bit more because this back is just different than it used to be.”
