Luke Donald insists he is fit and ready to compete in this week's WGC-CA Championship at Doral despite his recent injury scare.

Donald, who missed the second half of last season following surgery on his left wrist in August, thought he had caused further damage when he felt weakness during his WGC-Accenture Match Play quarter-final with Ernie Els 10 days ago in Arizona.

He skipped last week's Honda Classic but said on Tuesday: "I wouldn't play this week if I didn't think I was ready."

He added: "In fact, the doctor and my physio think it's better to kind of work it through.

"I guess scar tissue, once it irritates, sits at a funny angle and the more you work it and get it back in it sits in a stronger position.

"So I feel good about competing this week and I wouldn't play here if I didn't think I had a chance to come here and compete and win."

Donald admitted he had feared the worst as he was forced to walk off against Els, much as he had done when he suffered the injury' during last year's US Open at Torrey Pines.

"I was thinking 'What kind of office job can I do now?' but everything worked out fine, just some scar tissue irritation," Donald added.
