Woods vows to be at the Masters

11:32 am on 16 March 2012

Tiger Woods hasn't hit a golf ball since he limped off the Doral course in Florida last Monday, but he's promised he'll be ready to play in next month's first major championship of the year, the Masters at Augusta.

Woods has been nursing a strained Achilles tendon, but he says the stiffness has gone and he'll be back on the practice range Saturday.

He's even hopeful of playing in next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational, his traditional final tuneup for the Masters which starts on the 6th of April.
