Tiger Woods announced via Facebook on Friday that he will return from injury at the Quicken Loans National next week at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda.
“After a lot of therapy I have recovered well and will be supporting my foundation next week at the Quicken Loans National,” Woods wrote. “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.”
Woods has not played a round of competitive golf since early March, undergoing back surgery shortly after.
The Quicken Loans National is staged by and benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.
Practice rounds start Tuesday. The tournament starts Thursday.
