Tiger Woods Announces Return to PGA Tour
By Chris Greenberg
Tiger Woods is ready to return, even if he isn’t expecting to win.
For the first time since undergoing back surgery in March, Woods is set to compete in a PGA Tour event. He announced via Facebook that he will play in the upcoming the Quicken Loans National at at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. The 14-time major champion set expectations low for the tournament that begins on June 23.
“After a lot of therapy I have recovered well and will be supporting my foundation next week at the Quicken Loans National. I’ve just started to hit full shots but it’s time to take the next step. I will be a bit rusty but I want to play myself back into competitive shape. Excited for the challenge ahead,” Woods posted on Twitter
Woods hasn’t played in a PGA Tour event since March 9 at Doral and missed The Masters and U.S. Open while recovering from microdiscectomy surgery for a pinched nerve that had been bothering him as he got off to a poor start to the 2014 PGA Tour season.
