Tiger Woods to play in PGA

Tiger Woods says he's pain-free and planning to play in the PGA Championship, which starts Thursday. Woods ended speculation about his plans for the season's fourth major when he showed up at Valhalla Golf Club for a practice round on Wednesday afternoon -- just three days after withdrawing from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational with back spasms. After playing nine holes he told assembled media that the spasms were gone and he's no longer in pain. He said the injury that forced him to withdraw on Sunday wasn't related to the surgery he had in March to fix a pinched nerve, which kept him out of competition for almost three months.
