Tiger's day: No birdies, but no back issues to open at the Cadillac Championship

Tiger Woods made no birdies and seemed to have no back problems.

In other words, it could have been worse for the world's No. 1 player.

Woods' abbreviated day at the Cadillac Championship ended after 10 holes Thursday, after rain interrupted play for nearly 2½ hours and forced the first round into Friday because of darkness.

His numbers: two bogeys, eight pars and maybe most newsworthy, no noticeable grimaces on account of the balky back that forced him to withdraw Sunday during the final round of the Honda Classic.

When play resumes Friday he'll be five shots behind the leaders, only one of whom finished the round.
