Tiger Woods announces return to action
Friday 29 July 2011
Former world number one Tiger Woods is to return to action at next week's Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.
The 35-year-old has not played competitively since pulling out of the Players Championship in May midway through his first round because of knee and Achilles injuries.
"I'm excited to get back out there," Woods said on his personal website.
Although Woods has been inactive, he has still endured an eventful few months, slipping to number 21 in the rankings and splitting with caddie Steve Williams. He has not yet named a replacement.
Woods returns to a tournament where he has enjoyed plenty of success in the past, having won the WGC event seven times.
He is without a tournament win this season.
