Tiger Woods is finally planning on playing on the PGA Tour again

Tiger Woods is finally planning on playing on the PGA Tour again

"My hope is to have my game ready to go", Woods said on his official website.

About time too. The game has been crying out for the formerly all-powerful world No1 since he last competed in August 2015. Two shots out of the lead going into the final round, he closed with a 70 and tied for 10th.

Woods had a back operation in March 2014, another in September 2015 and a follow-up procedure to relieve discomfort. "Nearly like his first career didn't happen".

"He is the greatest player that has ever played this game".

Woods is set to play in the Safeway Open on October 13-16, travel to Turkey for the Turkish Airlines Open Nov. 3-6, and in his own tournament, the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas (Dec. 1-4).

Woods, who has dealt with injuries to his back, left knee, elbow, neck and wrist and missed considerable playing time in the past, said it has been hard to miss tournaments but he was "smart about my recovery and didn't rush it".

After his withdrawal from the sport's front line, there was much speculation as to whether or not Woods, now 40, would ever appear again. It is very hard to get that sharpness back. Either way, it's nice to see him announce his return. "It's going to be quite wonderful to have him coming back from this layoff". But he's on a different level than anyone else.

The US PGA Tour have released bobbleheads to recognise their FedEx Cup Champions.

"I'm sort of glad I'm not there that week".

McIlroy said: "There's been a handful of great athletes in the world in my lifetime - or in any of our lifetimes - that have put up numbers and consistent years like Tiger did over a 10-year period".

Woods' 79 career PGA wins is second in PGA history, only three behind the hall of famer Sam Snead. He hasn't seriously contended in a major since 2013.

The former No. 1 golfer in the world hasn't played a PGA tournament in over a year. "I don't think winning is going to come as easily as it was for him back in the past", Day said. It is quite a fantastic thing to come back from this long layoff.

Woods addressed what it was like sitting at home and not playing golf.
