Masters 2012: Tiger Woods Feels Healthy As Masters Week Arrives

Tiger Woods has had a lot of issues over the last couple of years, but his physical issues and injuries are an often overlooked source of his troubles. He has had various ailments all over his body, specifically in his legs, but as the Masters approaches he is feeling good, according to USA Today via SB Nation.

"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

"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."

We know what kind of player Tiger can be when he is healthy, so if he is feeling physically able he should be listed among the favorites as he is. His healthy has been the biggest roadblock in getting back to form lately and the Masters should test him physically as well as mentally.
