Tiger Woods walked gingerly out of the Cadillac Championship on Sunday, leaving many questions about his aching back in his wake -- not the least of which is when we might see him in competition next.

On Tuesday, his agent provided some guidance.

"Tiger is continuing to get treatment and get himself in a good place for next week," Mark Steinberg said in an email to ESPN.com. "He intends to be at Bay Hill" for the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Bay Hill is one of Tiger's favorite places. He is the defending champion and has won there a total of eight times -- he's obviously so familiar with the course that he wouldn't need much prep time there to get ready for the tournament.

In the meantime, many questions remain about Woods' health and his future, and Associated Press Golf Writer Doug Ferguson details the history of Woods' injuries and explores his situation in his most recent feature.
