NORTON, Mass. (AP) — The question was inevitable and the answer was predictable. Tiger Woods says his back is fine.

Woods played in the pro-am Thursday morning at the Deutsche Bank Championship. The last image of Woods on the golf course looked much worse. Four days ago, he dropped to his knees after a back spasm during the final round of The Barclays at Liberty National, where he finished one shot behind Adam Scott.

Woods said after the round it was “hypothetical” whether he would play the Deutsche Bank, adding that he had just walked off the course and wasn’t feeling very good.

One of his amateur partners asked him about his back on the first tee at the TPC Boston. Woods gave a short answer.
