"I'll be there" -- Tiger's Masters promise.

Tiger Woods will resume practice on Friday ahead of next month's Masters, despite concerns over the nagging achilles tendon injury that prompted him to walk off the course last Sunday at the World Golf Championships event at Doral, Miami.

Woods told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Thursday that he plans to play the Masters in three weeks despite a strained Achilles that he sustained in his final round at the WGC-Cadillac Championship last Sunday.

"I'll be there. Don't worry about it," Woods said when asked whether the injury, which forced him to withdraw after teeing off on the 12th hole on Sunday at Doral, might sideline him for the year's first major.

Woods also did not rule out playing in next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he is a six-time winner of the event he commonly uses as a final tune-up before Augusta. He finished tied for 24th last year at Bay Hill.

"The stiffness is gone," Woods said. "Hopefully, I'll be ready next week."

The left achilles tendon injury caused him to miss two majors last year. His withdrawal at Doral was the second time in 10 months that Woods has had to pull out of a tournament because of the same issue. He also retired after scoring a 42 on the front nine at the Players Championship last May, and went on to miss three months of play.

Woods said after Sunday's withdrawal: "In the past, I may have tried to continue to play, but this time I decided to do what I thought was necessary."
