Tiger eyes another monster season

Los Angeles:

Tiger Woods starts the 2004 PGA Tour season healthy and hungry for his first major victory in 18 months. "Last year at this time, I wasn't sure when I would be able to compete again," Woods said. "This year my knee is sound and I m ready to go." The 28-year-old American begins the new campaign at the $5.3 million Mercedes Championship in Hawaii this week after missing the 2003 event because of knee surgery. He will go head-to-head at the Kapalua Resort with South African and defending champ Ernie Els who cruised to an eight-stroke win in 2003. "Ernie (Els) played great golf, but I really wanted to be there. It was tough watching it on TV," said Woods on his web site. Woods, the reigning PGA Player of the Year, has spent the last couple weeks getting in shape for what he hopes is another monster season. Marriage plans Woods could also be hearing wedding bells in 2004 as he popped the question to Swedish model Elin Nordegren while they were vacationing in South Africa in November. He took time off in December after competing in the Target World Challenge where he finished second to Davis Love. The 30-field Mercedes features the PGA winners from last year and will give us a glimpse of what to expect from Woods this year. Woods is a two-time winner of this event having won in 2000 and 1997.
