Woods looking for strong start in Abu Dhabi 

Tiger Woods says he's the healthiest he's been in nearly a decade and is hoping his success of the end of 2011 will carry over into this week's Abu Dhabi Golf Championship.

Woods ended 2011 with his first victory in two years at the Chevron World Challenge and said Tuesday he is looking to pick more than that one win this year. His Chevron victory moved him up to 25th on the world rankings after he fell out of the top 50 last year.

Woods opens his season in Abu Dhabi for the first time and faces a star-studded lineup that includes U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, top-ranked Luke Donald and defending champion Martin Kaymer.
