It seems that Tiger Woods' recurring back spasms are not quite painful enough to keep him off one of his favorite courses.
Woods is reportedly working himself into shape — again — and plans to defend his championship at the 2014 Arnold Palmer Invitational next week.
"Tiger is continuing to get treatment and and get himself in a good place for next week," his agent, Mark Steinberg, told ESPN.com. "He intends to be at Bay Hill."
The announcement should not come as a surprise. Woods' victory last year marked the eighth time he's finished atop the leaderboard at the Florida course.
