Tiger Woods has announced that he ‘hopes’ to return to action when the 2016/17 PGA Tour season gets underway next month.


In a statement released on his website, the 14-time major winner revealed that the PGA Tour’s Safeway Open (formerly known as Frys.com Open) on October 13-16 is when he hopes to be back.

Woods also intends to play in the Turkish Airlines Open from November 3-6 in Antalya, as well as the Tiger Woods Foundation-run Hero World Challenge from December 1-4. He will then participate in the Tiger Woods Invitational presented by USLI on October 10-11 on the Monterey Peninsula.

“My rehabilitation is to the point where I'm comfortable making plans, but I still have work to do,” said Tiger Woods. “Whether I can play depends on my continued progress and recovery. My hope is to have my game ready to go.

“I'm looking forward to going to California for my foundation event and Safeway. I'm also excited to return to Turkey and Albany. It could be a fun fall.
"I've been a pro about 20 years, and their support has never waned" - Tiger Woods

“It was difficult missing tournaments that are important to me, but this time I was smart about my recovery and didn't rush it. It was great spending time with my children Sam and Charlie, and also working on a lot of projects including golf course design, the upcoming 20th anniversary of my foundation and my book about the 1997 Masters.

“But I missed competing. I want to thank all the fans for their kindness and concern. I've been a pro about 20 years, and their support has never waned.”
