After battling injuries for most of the last two years, Tiger Woods told reporters that he doesn't expect to be bothered by any physical ailments in the 2012 Masters:
"Physically I'm fine, I feel great, no aches and pains," Woods, who walked off the course at the Cadillac Championship last month with an Achilles issue, told Masters.com.
"The whole idea is to get your game together and have it going the way you want at the time you want," he said. "There are four times a year (the four majors) you want to be playing your best, and this is one of them."
Since his infamous car accident in 2009 that began a tabloid circus around his personal life, Woods has dealt with knee and back injuries that have left the golfer a shell of his former dominant self.
However, Woods has never been the most forthcoming player with reporters, so it's hard to know whether his confident sounding statements are intended for the fans or his opponents.
