WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — After more than two months away following major back surgery, Tiger Woods will make his return to golf next week at his own tournament, Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.
Woods announced in April he’d be having surgery, which would force him to miss The Masters for the first time in his professional career.
He announced his return via Facebook on Friday:
“After a lot of therapy I have recovered well and will be supporting my foundation next week at the Quicken Loans National,” Woods said. “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.”
