Tiger Woods upbeat about making Masters
Thursday 15 March 2012
Tiger Woods plans to start practising again tomorrow and is confident of being fit for The Masters starting in three weeks' time.
"I'll be there. Don't worry about it," he said during an appearance on American television.
Woods limped out of the Cadillac Championship after 11 holes of his final round on Sunday and was relieved to be told the following day that it was only a mild strain of his left Achilles tendon.
"I took a few days off. I'll start hitting balls tomorrow. The stiffness is gone. Hopefully I'll be ready next week."
He is entered for the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, starting next Thursday.
