Tiger Woods is returning to the golf course after announcing he will play next week at the Bridgestone Invitational after an 11-week layoff from golf while he recovered from left leg injuries.
Tiger Woods took to Twitter to announce his return, tweeting, "feeling fit and ready to tee it up at Firestone next week. Excited to get back out there!"
The big question is how Woods will fare after such a long time off with injuries to his left leg. This is probably just going to be a tune up to make sure he is healthy as he prepares to play in the PGA Championship, starting on Aug. 11 in Johns Creek, GA. That will be just the second major of 2011 for Tiger Woods after missing the U.S. Open and British Open.
The PGA Championship will also feature the first major with Woods and Rory McIlroy since McIlroy's storybook win at the U.S. Open and his crowning as the next big thing. The Bridgestone Invitational will be Tigert Woods' first tournament without longtime caddy Steve Williams, who he let go earlier this month. Woods has not won a tournament in nearly two years and has not won a major since the 2008 U.S. Open.
His world golf ranking has fallen to No. 21, but his hunger to get back on the golf course has to be strong. How do you think Tiger will play in his first golf tournament back in three months?
