Tiger to return at Match Play event

LOS ANGELES -- Eight months after winning the U.S. Open on one good leg, a healthy Tiger Woods is returning to golf.

 

Woods said on his Web site Thursday that he will defend his title next week in the Accenture Match Play Championship, believing his reconstructed left knee and his game is fit enough to play.

"I’m now ready to play again," Woods said.

The Match Play Championship in Tucson, Ariz., begins Wednesday, where Woods will end his 254-day break from competition.
