“This is going to be up there with one of the better accomplishments I have had,” Woods said about the possibility of winning Sunday. “Just considering where I’ve been, what I’ve had to dig through and fight through, the amount of help I had to have to get to this point. My body was a wreck.

“Had to battle through it. Not knowing what was on the other side. Didn’t know if I’d be able to compete at this level. I was just hoping for a better lifestyle. It’s been a very evolving kind of feeling and journey.”
