Tiger passed health test at Augusta on Sunday

After withdrawing from the WGC-Cadillac Championship two weeks ago at Doral, stating a left Achilles issue.

Tiger Woods, announced to the media in a press conference after his Pro-Am at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, that he actually played Augusta National on Sunday.

Apparently, it was to 'test' the health of his left Achilles before teeing it up on Monday and Tuesday in the Tavistock Cup at Lake Nona.

It passed.

“You guys don’t know, I played Augusta on Sunday,” said Woods. “That’s one of the reasons why I played Tavistock."

“(Left Achilles) felt great at Augusta, and that was the test. I played Tavistock because of that test, and here I am ready to go.”

With that round at Augusta, followed by back-to-back rounds at the Tavistok Cup. Now his Pro-Am and practice rounds this week at Bay Hill. And if he makes the cut this week, four more rounds this week.

That will mark eight straight rounds of golf for Woods and his gimpy left Achilles.

Obviously, if he can sustain good playing and more importantly (for him) good health throughout this stretch. He will most likely be fit and ready to go come Augusta in April for The Masters.
