    NASSAU, Bahamas -- This might be one time that Tiger Woods doesnt measure success on the golf course by the score on his card. Alan Page Jersey .He measured it with three words Tuesday: Im playing again.There were times during his 15 months away from golf that Woods wasnt entirely sure that would be the case. He said that when he was at the Hero World Challenge last year, he needed help just to climb out of bed. At an outdoor party at Albany Golf Club, he would mingle for a few minutes and then sit on a stone bench.He spent more time looking back than looking forward, saying at one point that anything else he achieved in golf would be gravy.And now he cant wait to get started on Thursday.The 15-month break to heal following back surgeries is the longest he has been away from golf. Woods was a mixture of optimism and reality about his return. He talked about having all the shots he needs to compete against a field that includes 17 players from the top 40 and Woods, the tournament host who is at a career-low No. 898. He is playing, so he said he wants to win. The outlook is no different.He also noted that Bubba Watson won last year at 25-under par, and it probably will take something around that to win.I know thats a tall order since Ive been away from the game for so long and Ive made a lot of different changes in my game, he said. Physically and also equipment, practice schedules, training, all that has evolved. The mindset of competing hasnt. That is to go out there and try to beat these guys.He still is working with swing coach Chris Como, whom he brought on two years ago. Now that Nike is out of the equipment business, Woods is using a TaylorMade driver and fairway metals, a Bridgestone golf ball and his old Scotty Cameron putter that he used to win all but one of his 14 majors.But it starts with playing.Put it this way: Its a lot better situation this year than last, Woods said. I just couldnt get out of bed. I needed help. It was a tough, tough time. You asked me then, `Could I play? No. I cant even get out of bed. How am I supposed to swing a club at 120 miles an hour? Thats just two different worlds.The Hero World Challenge, which he started in 1999 to benefit the Tiger Woods Foundation, is effectively a holiday tournament for golfs elite that has no cut and pays $1 million to the winner. It feels so much bigger this year because of Woods.Over the last year, he played five holes to open his new golf course, Bluejack National, outside Houston. And he took three swings with a wedge on the par-3 10th hole at Congressional during a day to promote the Quicken Loans National. All three went in the water.Everyone is curious to see how he plays. That includes Woods.His biggest concern is how far his shots will go because he hasnt played with any adrenaline since the final round of the Wyndham Championship on Aug. 23, 2015. He doesnt know how his game will stack up against players he watched at Hazeltine when he was an assistant captain at the Ryder Cup.His previous long break from golf was eight months when he had reconstructive surgery on his left knee after winning the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, the last of his 14 major titles. He won his opening match in the Match Play Championship and won two tournaments later at Bay Hill.That was a knee. This is a back.He was 33, not a month away from turning 41. And that was long before any chaos in his personal life.Asked what he would expect to feel Thursday at Albany Golf Club, Woods said, Ill let you know then, because I dont know right now.Yeah, theres nerves, of course, because I care. I care about what I do out there, he said. I want to win, and I want to place the ball in the correct spots, give myself the best angles and bury these putts. Trying to figure that out, yeah, theres nerves.Woods often talks about the process when hes changing his swing. This was a different kind of process. It starts with hitting golf balls at home, then playing a practice round at home, and then bringing that game out to a tournament, competing and eventually getting into contention.Right now, I havent even competed yet, so Im at the beginning stages of that, he said.Jack Nicklaus spoke Tuesday morning at the HSBC Business Forum in Florida and talked about how golf wasnt nearly as important to him as competing. Thats something to which Woods can relate. What he said he missed was the competition, whether on tour or at home with friends.But the bigger the stage, Woods said, the more fun for me. David Parry Jersey . Marincin has played in two NHL games so far this season with two penalty minutes. The 21-year-old has three goals, four assists and a plus-5 rating in 24 games with the American Hockey Leagues Oklahoma City Barons this season. Trae Waynes Jersey . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. ARLINGTON, Texas --?Ezekiel Elliott was contained for much of the first half by the New York Giants, picking up just 31 yards on 15 carries. On the Dallas Cowboys opening drive of the second half, the rookie running back scored his first touchdown.On first-and-goal from the New York 8, Elliott found a hole to the right side of the Cowboys line and was able to use a double-team block by Travis Frederick and Zack Martin to dive into the end zone for the first touchdown of his career.The score gave the Cowboys a 16-13 lead.Elliott had three carries for 18 yards on the drive, which was created by a Brandon Carr interception of Eli Manning. It was Carrs first interrception since Thanksgiving 2013. Trevor Siemian Jersey. .The Giants have stacked the box against Elliott, attempting to put more pressure on rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. Before he had back-to-back 8-yard carries to open the third quarter, including the touchdown, his longest run of the game was 5 yards.Even with the lack of yards, his day has been better than the debuts of Emmitt Smith and Tony Dorsett. In 1977, Dorsett had 11 yards on four carries against the Minnesota Vikings. In 1990, Smith had 2 yards on two carries against San Diego. Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
