Woods hopeful of making Masters


Tiger Woods has been told he only has a "mild strain" of his left achilles tendon, boosting his hopes of playing in next month's Masters.

Woods pulled out of the Cadillac Championship in the middle of his round on Sunday and viewers will be surprised, given the severity of his limp, at his good news, but he wrote on Twitter yesterday: "Can resume hitting balls late in week and hopeful for next week."
