Rob Lee lks back on the latest fitness update from Tiger Wds, welcome wins for Adam Scott and Louis sthuizen, and insists there is no reason for Rory McIlroy fans to be concerned. As we lk forward to the first World Golf Championship of the year, much of the attention was diverted in the direction of multiple WGC winner Tiger Wds after he gave us an update on his recovery from back surgery.He admitted there was still no timetable for his return, but its gd to hear hes able to practice chipping and putting and the video of him hitting a smth nine-iron on a simulator was a welcome sight for his legion of fans. Tiger has had three major back operations now, and these are difficult things to come back from. I think he came back t quickly the first time. Dont forget Graham DeLaet had the exact same procedure and was out of action for almost a year, and Tiger tried to come back in almost half that time. Tiger Wds would risk his career by rushing back t early once again Im sure hes now fully aware of the importance of not rushing back this time, and he will not return unless he is absolutely sure he is 100% fit. There is no point in coming back t sn, and if he has to spend the whole of 2016 recovering, then so be it.The most important thing for Tiger is that he avoids the temptation to try and speed up the process. He said in Albany in December that he would quit if he required any more surgery. Hes had the advice from the best doctors, and that is something he may not have heeded in recent years. Wds has now had three back operations, and needs to be fully fit before returning But I think its different this time, and I cant imagine any medical specialist worth his salt would be keen for an athlete such as Tiger Wds to rush back into competition.Perhaps this time the penny has dropped, and he is now at the point of no return. So I wouldnt be surprised to see him come back later, rather than sner.Just down the road from Chez Tiger, the Florida Swing kicked into action with the Honda Classic and Sky Sports viewers were treated to an excellent tournament packed with talking points. Adam Scott proudly holds the 2016 Honda Classic trophy I was really pleased to see Adam Scott win after dealing with having to go back to a conventional putter. He persevered with the anchored putter for longer than most last year, and many predicted the anchored putting ban could damage his career.But he finished second at Riviera and followed that up with a win at PGA National, and he lks like he is swinging the club better than he ever has.After a number of youngsters won on the PGA Tour in the early part of the wrap-around season, the likes of Jason Dufner, Brandt Snedeker and now Scott have bucked that trend. Victory was Scotts first with a regulation putter since the 2010 Singapore Open Are the old guard fighting back? I wouldnt read much into that. These things can go in phases - a few wins for the 20-somethings, and then a few for the over 30s. These things happen in golf.The thing to do is lk at the top of the world rankings if you want to know where the power base is, and - right now - the power base is with the young guns.Sergio Garcia pushed Scott hard at the Honda and came up just short at the end. He said he didnt feel completely comfortable with his swing all week, and comfort is vital for PGA Tour professionals. Sergio Garcia battled hard at PGA National but came up a shot short But even the best players will have weeks where theyre a little off with their swing, and sometimes you just have to battle hard and gouge it round. This is what we saw from Sergio at PGA National, and it was a great result for him coming off a missed cut at Riviera.You cant turn up week in, week out with a pretty swing, and when you lose the comfort and feel, its a mystery you have to resolve out on the course and just find a way to get it round. Garcia managed that and gd for him - more please!He can paint some really pretty pictures on a golf course, but its also gd for him to be contending for a title when he feels hes not 100%. Rory McIlroy made many mistakes, but there were positives as well As for Rory McIlroy, he has enjoyed - and endured - five years of contrasting fortunes in this event, and it was disappointing to see him miss the cut after a pair of erratic 72s.Rory has always had that element of being a streaky player. He can get on a run where he lks unstoppable, and then he can have a period where he is just a little off. For all the mistakes last week, he still hit a lot of great shots, and he is not far away from his best.Its easy to say hes in a slump just because he hasnt been in the top-five every week since January. But the reality is, golf is a very difficult game, and I really dont think Rory McIlroy has anything to worry about right now.Maybe his change of putting grip will do the trick this week. Rickie Fowler was flawless for 36 holes before fading at the weekend I was also surprised to see Rickie Fowler fall away at the weekend after playing the first 36 holes without a bogey and lking so accomplished. He lked all set to ride off into the sunset with another title in the bag, but it went very wrong for him on Saturday.He appeared very lse over the weekend, but like Rory, you cant castigate a talent such as Rickie Fowler for a couple of bad rounds - especially at one of the toughest courses on the PGA Tour schedule.If youre just a little off key around PGA National, you get punished. Its a very unforgiving venue, and Jack Nicklaus has done a great job in turning into the sort of course that has a major feel about it. Louis sthuizen after winning the Perth International Over on the European Tour, Louis sthuizen collected his first win in over two years at the Perth International. His fellow South African Charl Schwartzel rarely wins outside his homeland, but Louis has proved he can win anywhere in the world.Hes an amazing player and, on his day, hes up there with the likes of Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day as one of the best ball-strikers in the world.sthuizen has had a lot of problems with injuries in recent seasons, but hes managing his schedule very carefully and it would be fantastic to see him have three healthy years to see what hes really capable of. Unless it rains, the greens at Doral will be firm and fast over the weekend This week, all eyes are on Doral in Florida for the WGC-Cadillac Championship, where Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Rory McIlroy play together for the first two rounds.A lot of long hitters have had success at Doral, but if theres no rain over the week, those greens will be like big bricks over the weekend. Theres a couple of holes where you can struggle to keep it on the green hitting a sand wedge.It can be almost a bit t tricked up for my liking, and Im guessing it will be soft and lush for two days, and then they will turn the taps off and let the greens bake for the weekend. The 18th at Doral is one of the toughest closing holes in the world, and if you have a one-shot lead after 71 holes, you still need to keep your focus and work very hard to walk off 18 with a par.Robs Sky Bet tip: Length is always an advantage at the Blue Monster, and thats why I expect Dustin Johnson to go well there again this week. Playing a course he has won at before will do wonders for his confidence, and Ive got the feeling hes been bubbling under in the early part of the year. Theres a big week coming sn for DJ, and this could be the perfect week for him to deliver at 10/1 with Sky Bet. Get a Sky Sports Pass Dont miss the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

There are going to be a lot of players changing clubhouses over the next week, as the trade deadline approaches and teams with dreams of postseason glory attempt to wheel and deal their way into the best possible position prior to pesky waiver rules kicking in at the start of August. There may even be a few deals finalized while youre reading this column. Such are the hectic baseball times we live in each July.In terms of fantasy owners, reassessing your own rosters in the wake f these late-July deals is always a difficult task, to be sure.dddddddddddd You have to factor in changes in roles and playing time, as well as differences in a players lineup, league and ballpark -- and oftentimes, until you see it play out, you still dont have any true idea of whether or not your now-traded player is in a better or worse situation.
