Jersey City, N.J. • Another week, another nagging injury for Tiger Woods — this from a soft bed in his hotel.

Woods did not play the back nine of his pro-am Wednesday at The Barclays. He still walked with his amateur partners, but only chipped and putted at Liberty National.

He says his neck and back were stiff in the morning. He attributes it to a soft bed in his hotel and says he didn't want to push it.

Woods was seen grabbing his back in the final round of the PGA Championship. He had an elbow injury that troubled him for two months this summer. Woods says he's not concerned. He says everything felt fine when he was home.

Asked about getting a new bed, Woods smiled and said, "We'll have something."
