(Jersey City, NJ) -- Tiger Woods is feeling a bit sore heading into the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs. First-round play at The Barclays begins today at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City. Woods says a bad hotel bed left him a little stiff for today's Pro-Am.

Tiger played the full front nine of the Pro-Am before reeling it in on the back nine. Woods has five wins on the PGA Tour this year, but is without a major title this season. The last of his 14 major victories came at the 2008 U.S. Open. Nick Watney is the defending champ at The Barclays.
