Despite hitting a tree root during the final round of the Masters, Tiger Woods' right wrist is "fine," according to Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg.

Woods was in pain after hitting a root on his approach shot to the ninth hole. He completed the round, carding a 1-over 73, and explained that the pain subsided after some on-course self-adjustment.

"A bone kind of popped out and the joint kind of went out of place, but I put it back in," Woods said.

In an e-mail with, Steinberg stated simply that "the wrist is fine."

Woods finished T-17 at the Masters, his first competitive start since announcing a self-imposed leave on Feb. 11. He is not eligible for the WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship later this month, and his next anticipated start is The Players Championship, which begins May 7, an event he won in 2001 and 2013.

After completing play at Augusta National, Woods remained vague about when he will next play competitively.

"Not going to be for a while," he said. "I have a little time off, and go back to the drawing board, work on it again, and refine what I'm doing."
