Tiger Woods 'excited' by return to competitive action

He's been out of competitive action for most of 2014, but Tiger Woods will return to golf this week.

Woods, who underwent back surgery to repair a pinched nerve in March, will play at his own Quicken Loans National event at the Congressional Country Club as he begins his preparations for the third major of the season -- the British Open.

"After a lot of therapy I have recovered well and will be supporting my foundation next week at the Quicken Loans National," said Woods on his Facebook page.

"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."

Woods was forced to miss The Masters in April as well as the U.S. Open in June as the 14-time major champion recovered from surgery.

The 38-year-old's last major victory came at the 2008 U.S. Open.

He has now missed six major championships through injury, his absence at Augusta the first time he'd not been at the Masters since making his debut there as an amateur in 1995.

Stuck on 14 majors since 2008, Woods has two more chances this season to close in on Jack Nicklaus' record haul of 18.

Staged at Hoylake in north west England this year, the Open starts on 17 July.
