Tiger Woods has been given the all clear to play competitive golf again by his surgeon

Woods has undergone four surgical procedures on his back, the latest performed in April to "alleviate ongoing pain in his back and leg".

The 14-time major champion has been recovering from back surgery for the past nine months, and he recently was given the all-clear to resume full golf activities.

The 18-man Hero World Challenge, hosted by Woods in the Bahamas, is an unofficial money event on the PGA Tour.

After nine months spent away from the sport recovering from his fourth back surgery, Woods announced Monday he will be a part of the 18-player field at the Hero World Challenge starting on November 30.

"Albany is the ideal setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field", Woods said on his website.

And now, in a post on his website, Woods stated that he will be returning to golf - with his appearance at the Hero World Challenge marking his first appearance back.

"I want to thank (CEO) Pawan Munjal and Hero MotoCorp for their continued support of this tournament and my foundation".

Woods just received clearance from his doctor to play. Woods has won the event five times.

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

Three days ago he pleaded guilty to reckless driving in a deal to keep him out of jail. Woods was given probation, and will take a DUI class.
