NASSAU, Bahamas — There are no issues with his surgically repaired back. No issues with his swing speed. No issues with his power. Nope, after a 72-hole romp around Albany Golf Course, there remain few issues for Tiger Woods, few questions as he heads into the new year. In his first competitive action in 10 months, and coming just seven months following spinal fusion surgery, Woods provided plenty of blasts from the past and upbeat glimpses into his future inside the ropes. With a 4-under-par 68 on Sunday, Woods finished the Hero World Challenge at 8 under and in a tie for ninth in the 18-man field that lured eight of the top 10 players in the world. Despite finishing 10 shots behind winner Rickie Fowler, who closed with a course-record 61, Woods was beaming after signing for rounds of 69-68-75-68 on this island paradise. “I’m excited,” said Woods, who was followed the entire round by his two kids and world No. 1 Rafa Nadal. “This is the way I’ve been playing at home and when I came out here and played, I was playing very similar to this. Not quite hitting it as far, but I had the adrenaline going and overall I’m very pleased.”     Unlike last year’s aborted comeback that also began here at Albany, Woods is healthier this time around. There was no hesitation at all when he had to go after a shot from an awkward lie, no hesitation when he dialed up his ball speed past 180 mph. This time was different. “I’m excited the way this week has gone on. With not only the competitive rounds but also all the functions at night. I still got my training in. It was a very good week,” said Woods, who finished with 17 birdies, two eagles, 11 bogeys and one double-bogey. “I really drove it well and I really putted well. I know I had one day where I didn’t have the speed on the greens, but I hit a lot of good putts this week.” He’s excited going forward, too. Woods will sit down with his team to decide where and when he’ll play in 2018. If history provides an indication, he will tee it up in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego the last week of January. His last major triumph – the 2008 U.S. Open – was at Torrey Pines and he’s won the Farmers on seven occasions.
