Tiger Woods surprised the golf world yesterday when he withdrew from the Cadillac Championship with just seven holes to go, citing a sore left Achilles tendon as the culprit. But Woods turned around today and revealed good news:

Woods appears optimistic he'll be ready to go for next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational -- then after that comes the big one. The 2012 Masters tees off on Thursday, April 5 at Augusta National. Woods lost the world's No. 1 ranking in October 2010 and currently sits at No. 18. He hasn't won a major tournament since U.S. Open in June 2008, and he hasn't won any tournaments at all since September 2009.
