Tiger Woods 'Expects' To Play In 2011 U.S. Open Despite Knee Injury

When Tiger Woods limped off the course at the 2011 Players Championship, his immediate future, particularly in terms of the upcoming 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, looked to be in doubt. But Tiger claims that there was no further damage done to the knee that he originally injured at the Masters, and that he fully expects to be part of the U.S. Open when they tee 'em up in June.

Bummed that my left leg has me on the sidelines, but I want, and expect, to be at the US Open. Will do all I can to get there.less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

Whether or not he can be effective is an entirely different story. but if you had already bought tickets for the U.S. Open in the hopes of seeing Tiger there, it doesn't seem like you'll be disappointed.
