Woods says he's rarely been fitter

6:44 am on 25 January 2012

The former world golf number Tiger Woods has declared he is the fittest he has been in about a decade.

Woods will start his 16th season tomorrow night at the European Tour's Abu Dhabi Championship, the first time the world number 25 has played in the United Arab Emirates capital.

Woods ended 2011 on a high with his victory at last month's Chevron World Challenge, ending a two-year winless drought brought on by turmoil in his personal life.
