Tiger Woods says he did not do any more damage to his left knee and Achilles last week and expects to play in the U.S. Open.
Woods withdrew from The Players Championship after only nine
holes because of pain in his left leg. He was 6-over par at the
time, the shortest tournament of his career.
On his website Monday, Woods says he irritated his knee and
Achilles, and that there is no time frame for when it will heal. He
said on Twitter that he expects to be at the U.S. Open on June
16-19 and "will do all I can to get there."
He is unlikely to play at the Memorial, which is two weeks
before the U.S. Open.
