Tiger Woods’ return to golf set for next week

 

Feeling rusty but ready to play again, Tiger Woods said Friday he would return to competition next week at Congressional in the Quicken Loans National. This is the first year for a new title sponsor at the PGA Tour event that donates its charity money to the Tiger Woods Foundation. Woods last played on March 9 at Doral, where he dealt with pain in his lower back and closed with a 78 for his highest final-round score on the PGA Tour. He had back surgery March 31, forcing him to miss the Masters for the first time. He also missed the U.S. Open last week at Pinehurst No. 2. The announcement on his Facebook page delivered a jolt of good news to golf. With limited information about his recovery, speculation was starting to build that he might not make it to any majors this year. – Associated Press
