Woods Shows No Problem with Ankle
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Tiger Woods made it through two days of a golf exhibition without any trouble with his left Achilles tendon.

Woods withdrew from the final round at Doral on March 11 with tightness in his left Achilles tendon, the same one that forced him to miss two majors last year. Woods later said he was being smart about his injury, and that it turned out to be a minor strain.

If he makes the cut this week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, it will be seven straight days of golf in his final competition before the Masters.

In the Tavistock Cup, a two-day exhibition among four private golf clubs, Woods shot an even-par 72. Ian Poulter, his teammate from Albany, was the only player who had a higher score.

Lake Nona won the event.
