Tiger Woods admits he is “really excited” by the thought of returning to PGA Tour action at next week’s Fry.com Open.
The 35-year-old has not taken part in a competitive event since crashing out at the halfway stage of the US PGA Championship. However, he has been named as a wildcard selection for the Presidents Cup in November, which the USA are 4/6 to win with bookmaker.
Woods has been troubled by knee and Achilles injuries which have severely restricted his playing appearances this season.
But the former world number one revealed that he has been working hard on the driving range and working out at the gym, and is now ready to make a return.
Woods said: “I’m playing as much as I possibly can, something that I hadn’t done all summer, because I hadn’t been cleared to do it. Now I have the clearance to do that.
“My training sessions are great. Strength has come back. My explosiveness has come back through my training, and now I’m just trying to get my feel back, and it feels great.”
