Tiger Woods announced on social media on Friday afternoon that he will return to competition at next week's Quicken Loans National.
"After a lot of therapy I have recovered well and will be supporting my foundation next week at the Quicken Loans National," Woods said on his Facebook page. "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."
The tournament, played at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., benefits his own Tiger Woods Foundation.
Woods has not played in an event since a back injury knocked him out of the WGC-Cadillac Championship in early March.
Woods had surgery on his back and began rehabbing with his golf clubs in mid-April.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
