Woods 'feeling fantastic' before return at Hero World Challenge

Former world number one Tiger Woods says he is “feeling fantastic” as he prepares to return to action at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.
The American, 41, has had multiple back operations in recent years and withdrew from his last tournament in Dubai in February with back spasms.
But the 14-time major winner says surgery in April has cured the pain.
“The surgery was about quality of life. I didn’t really have much because I had been in bed for two years,” he said.
Woods, who will play alongside world number three and PGA champion Justin Thomas in Thursday’s opening round, added: “I feel fantastic. I miss playing golf for fun, I haven’t done that in two years.”
Woods ended a 15-month absence when he returned for the Hero World Challenge this time last year, but his comeback was cut short when he withdrew from February’s Dubai Desert Classic.
He then underwent an “anterior interbody lumbar fusion” to prevent the nerve pain in his back, but in September said he may never return to competitive golf.
Woods is seeking his first tournament win since 2013, while his title drought in the majors dates back to 2008. (BBC Sport)
