“I'll be there. Don't worry about it,” he said on “Good Morning America.” “I took a few days off [after withdrawing from the Cadillac Championship last weekend beccause of the injury]. I'll start hitting balls tomorrow. The stiffness is gone. Hopefully, I'll be ready next week.”

Woods, who is scheduled to play in the Tavistock Cup and the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill next week to tune up for the April 5 Masters, tweeted Monday that he has only a mild strain.

“The leg's good now,” Woods said on “The Scott Van Pelt Show.” “I took a couple of days off, got some treatment on it. I got the go-ahead to start hitting balls [Friday] and start ramping up and get ready for Bay Hill.”
