PGA Tour's stop in Japan reaching blockbuster status Jun Sato Getty Images

He left no doubt that he would be ready for Thursday's first round when the USA -based PGA Tour plays its first official-money event in Japan.

Woods, wearing a dark blue sleeveless sweater, spoke at Narashino Country Club before a Monday afternoon Japan Skins made-for-TV exhibition with Rory McIlroy, Hideki Matsuyama and Jason Day.

"I need a little bit more rest", Woods said with a smile, referring to a hectic schedule since his arrival in Japan that included multiple appearances around Tokyo on Sunday.

Before Woods could reply, Day supplied the rejoinder. Woodland claimed one of his five pro victories in Asia, teaming with Matt Kuchar to win the 2011 World Cup in China. "I found that out today when he told me".

While that will be fun and games, it will be serious business come Thursday.

Jason Day and Tiger Woods share a joke during the Japanese Skins game.

Giants not considering benching Daniel Jones for Eli Manning
It's about me being on the field, or whatever my role is, whether it's a little bit or a lot of bit, I'm going to make some plays. Jones knows he needs to be more careful with the football when he drops back. "And when I'm running, keeping the ball secured".

With Woods coming off a knee surgery in August and McIlroy an off-season break, the overall standard of golf was poor on Monday.

"I don't just want to win the Australian Open once, I want to win it multiple times like Greg Norman did", Day said.

By his own assessment, he started very slowly.

Based on seniority, Tiger Woods hit the first tee shot and used driver to find the left rough.

"I had the procedure a little bit early and got ahead of it", the American added. We were competitive, the banter was great, the back and forth. Woods said that after the surgery, he has improved the possibilities to justify himself for the December event. Woods spent the day smiling and needling McIlroy, Matsuyama and Day. One or two multimillionaires don't much care if a putt for $10,000 goes in.

"I hit in between the greens, so it looked kind of like I kind of didn't know what I was doing", he said. Each hole on the course has two putting surfaces, but only the par 4 fourth will use both over the course of the tournament.

The Narashino club is located about 50 kilometers (30 miles) northeast of Tokyo in Chiba prefecture.

"Over the years, having friends compete in the Olympics, seeing golf be part of the Olympics, it would be an honour to represent my country in an Olympic Games".

On the seventh hole, the group was joined by four rugby players in a scramble format. The 100-kilogram (220-pound) Habana nearly crushed Mastuyama as he screamed: "That's my partner".

Day then ran away with the competition thanks to a $100,000 birdie under the lights on the 18th.

The PGA TOUR co-sanctions more than 130 tournaments on the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA TOUR Latinoamérica, Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada and PGA TOUR Series-China.

Following a T13 at the Tour Championship, Fleetwood played three events on the European Tour (T8-T60-T5) before returning to the PGA Tour at last week's CJ Cup, where he finished T20. And I love Brooks. So this is the first real chance I've had to see any event here.
