Woods: elbow will be ‘good enough’ for Open

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Tiger Woods can’t say whether his left elbow will be fully healed in time for the British Open, only that it will be “good enough.”

Doctors have recommended that he sit out this week at Congressional, along with next week at The Greenbrier, because of a left elbow strain that has been bothering him for over a month and was made worse by hacking out of the dense U.S. Open rough at Merion.

The British Open is July 18-21 at Muirfield, and Woods could not say that he would be at 100 percent by then. He is treating the injury with electrical stimulation, ice, soft tissue treatment and anti-inflammatories to help with the swelling.
