Tiger Woods' absence from golf is no more as he announced on Facebook on Friday that he is going to play the Quicken Loans National next weekend at Congressional Country Club, a tournament he hosts.
"After a lot of therapy I have recovered well and will be supporting my foundation next week at the Quicken Loans National," he said.
"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."
It's strange to me that he "just started to hit full shots" but is going to return nonetheless.
That makes next week's tournament must-see television for golf fans, by the way. And it's been a while since we've had that.
