Tiger Woods: 'No Doubt, I'll Be Ready' For U.S. Open

Tiger Woods hasn't set a firm date for a return for golf, but he will be back for the 2011 U.S. Open, he said in an interview with CSN Washington. Woods is resting as he recovers from a left knee injury sustained at The Masters that will keep him out of this week's Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. His status for The Players Championship is still up in the air, though we should know if he plans to play at TPC Sawgrass by Friday.

Woods said he had "a little hitch in the giddy-up" but that his injury is healing up nicely as he takes a few weeks off from golf. He said he's just taking a little time off as a precaution, but didn't sound too concerned about the long-term prognosis. The walking boot Woods has been wearing is simply a precaution, though he admits it's "not comfortable ... not a cool thing."

When the attention turned to the U.S. Open, Woods was confident in his ability to return. "I'll be ready. No doubt, I'll be ready. I'll be back pretty soon," Woods said, though he didn't specify exactly when he'd be back.
