I'm fit and ready to play, says Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods has declared himself fit and ready to compete for a fifth Masters title after completing 11 holes of practice at Augusta National on Monday.
Woods has started just two events in 2015, shooting a career-worst score of 82 to miss the cut in the Waste Management Phoenix Open and withdrawing through injury after just 11 holes of the Farmers Insurance Open on February 5.
That led to the 14-time major winner taking a break from competition to work on his game, during which time he dropped outside the world's top 100 for the first time since September 1996, a slide which continued on Monday as he fell from 104th to 111th.
Woods has not won a major since the 2008 US Open and the last of his four Masters wins was a decade ago, with the 39-year-old only confirming on Friday that he would compete at Augusta.
However, after showing no sign of the chipping "yips" which blighted his performance in Phoenix on the range, Woods produced some vintage shots as he completed the front nine alongside long-time friend Mark O'Meara before playing the 10th and 18th alone.
"I felt good. It was nice to get out here," said Woods, who was two under after four holes despite a wayward drive on the first and three-putting the par-five second for a par.
