Woods on Augusta: 'I'll be there, don't worry'


Tiger Woods has every intention of playing at the Masters, he said Thursday on “Good Morning America.”

'I'll be there, don't worry about that,' Woods said to Robin Roberts, who played against the 14-time major winner in the latest video game version of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series.

Woods said his Achilles is healthy after tweeting on Monday night that he suffered a mild strain of the tendon in the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Woods pulled out after 12 holes on Sunday at Doral.

The injury has healed well enough for Woods to resume practice on Friday.

“It's good now. I took some days off. I'm going to start hitting golf balls tomorrow,” Woods said. “All the swelling's gone. The stiffness is gone. And I'm excited to get back out.”

The world No. 18 said Monday he is “hopeful for next week,” but will spend the next few days deciding if he will compete in the Tavistock Cup or Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando.
