Tiger Woods now ready to play again


It's official. The roar is back. Tiger Woods announced Thursday on his Web site that he would compete in next week's WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Woods is the defending champion and also won the event in 2003 and 2004.
'Elin and our new son Charlie are doing great. I've enjoyed my time at home with the family and appreciate everyone's support and kind wishes,' Woods said on Tigerwoods.com.
Woods last played June 16th, defeating Rocco Mediate in 91 holes to win the US Open. It was his 14th professional major victory and 65th career win on the PGA Tour. Following the playoff, on June 24th he underwent season-ending reconstructive surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament and some cartilage damage in his left knee. Woods also had fractures in his left tibia.
In six starts on the Tour last year, Woods won four times and finished second in the Masters. He also captured the Dubai Desert Classic on the PGA European Tour. His 14 majors trails only Jack Nicklaus' total (18) and his 65 PGA Tour wins is third on the all-time list behind Sam Snead (82) and Nicklaus (73).
'I'm now ready to play again,' Woods said.
