Woods, who recently underwent back surgery, hasn’t played competitively since February.

“It has been just over a month since I underwent fusion surgery on my back, and it is hard to express how much better I feel,” he wrote in a blog post Wednesday. “It was instant nerve relief. I haven’t felt this good in years.”

“As for returning to competitive golf, the long-term prognosis is positive,” he wrote. “My surgeon and physiotherapist say the operation was successful. It’s just a matter of not screwing up and letting it fuse. I’m walking and doing my exercises, and taking my kids to and from school. All I can do is take it day by day. There’s no hurry.”

“But, I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again.”
