Tiger Woods played an 18-hole practice round on Monday at the site of next week's PGA Championship and pronounced the 7,467-yard Atlanta Athletic Club layout ready for the year's last major event. "I had a blast out there on a wonderful golf course," Woods said in a posting on his website. "It should be a great test for a major championship."

Woods confirmed reports that long-time friend and business partner Bryon Bell will replace fired Steve Williams as his caddie.

Bell, a friend of Woods since childhood, is president of Tiger Woods Design and has served as bagman for Woods four times in PGA events.

"Tiger asked me to work with him and I'm glad to do it," Bell said. "Although I have a busy schedule with Tiger Woods Design, it's fun to come out here again.

"We've had success on the course together before. I hope I'm a good asset for him while he searches for a permanent caddie and I'm looking forward to Firestone."
