              Tiger Woods announced on Monday that he will make his return to the golf course in late November

Following nine months away from competitive golf, former world No 1 Tiger Woods will return to the sport at the Hero World Challenge in Albany in the Bahamas in late November.

Woods, a 14-time major championship victor, last played at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in February before he was forced to withdraw with back pain.

Woods, 41, has won 14 major titles, which is second all-time. In April, he underwent a fourth back surgery.

Woods last competed on the PGA Tour in January for the Farmers Insurance Open; a tournament that Woods missed the cut in.

After weeks of videos and speculation, Tiger Woods made it official: He's coming back.

The field also includes the world's current top four ranked players - Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Hideki Matsuyama and Justin Thomas. The 14-times major victor underwent a fourth back operation in three years in April and his agent, Mark Steinberg, said this month that he had been cleared to resume full golf activity following a check-up with his surgeon.


The 14-time major victor will come back at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas on 30th November. "Albany is the flawless setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field".

In a statement released Monday, Woods said he thanked "fans for their unwavering support" during his injury.

Woods pleaded guilty Friday to reckless driving and was sentenced to 12 months' probation after he agreed to enter a diversion program.

Off the course, it's been a tough year for the 14-time major victor.

The announcement comes days after Woods agreed to a plea deal stemming from his May 29 arrest on DUI charges in Florida.
