Tiger Woods was dealing with a stiff back and neck at Liberty National on Wednesday morning. He only played nine holes of his pro-am.

"It was stiff this morning after a soft bed," Woods said. "Just one of those things, sleeping in hotels and I didn't want to push it, so just took it easy."

Woods also had a stiff back during the PGA Championship two weeks ago but added that it wasn't much of a concern.

When asked it he got a new bed, "What do you think?" he asked.

The FedExCup points leader finished second at The Barclays in 2009 when it was played at Liberty National. That year he went on to win his second FedEx Cup title.
