Tiger Woods on crutches and wearing a protective boot, talked to reporters today and said he expects he'll be "ready to go" for the U.S. Open June 16-19 at Congressional. He said he'll start training at the end of next week and see how it goes. A few weeks back Tiger withdrew after only nine holes at The Players Championship due to the pain in his left knee, left Achilles' tendon, tightening in his calf, and sore lower back. And for the first time in 14 years he has fallen out of the top 10 rankings.

"I haven't played. It's one of the reasons I've fallen I've far as I have," Woods said. "When I did play, I haven't played well. Winning takes care of all of that."

Tiger also posted on Twitter that he would donate $1 million to his foundation if no reporters today asked him about his leg. Um, that didn't happen. The first question question was about his leg and Woods later posted on Twitter he would donate the money anyway.
