Atlanta: Tiger Woods played an 18-hole practice round on Monday at the site of next week's PGA Championship and pronounced the 7,467-yard Atlanta Athletic Club layout ready for the year's last major event.
"I had a blast out there on a wonderful golf course," Woods said in a posting on his website. "It should be a great test for a major championship."
Former World No. 1 Woods, a 14-time major champion chasing the all-time record 18 major titles won by Jack Nicklaus, fell to 28th in this week's rankings ahead of his return from an 11-week injury layoff at Akron, Ohio.
