Tiger Woods will get a final tuneup in before the Masters after all. Almost a week after the 14-time major winner limped off the course and withdrew from the WGC-Cadillac Championship, Woods confirmed, on his website, that the Achilles felt so good following a Friday practice session, he's going to play two tournaments in one week.
Woods will play in the Tavistock Cup, a two-day exhibition starting on Monday, followed by the Arnold Palmer Invitation at Bay Hill starting on Thursday. Some had questioned whether it would be beneficial for Woods to rest the strained Achilles prior to the Masters, but based on the way things have gone since Sunday, it would appear the injury is a non-factor at this point (at least that's what Woods is leading many to believe).
We'll certainly get an idea of what kind of condition the Achilles is in with Woods playing six rounds of competitive golf in a seven-day period.
