Tiger Woods to Return to Professional Golf Next Week at WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

Tiger Woods to Return to Professional Golf Next Week at WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Tiger Woods is in the news again. No, he hasn't announced when the first party at his gigantic Jupiter Island bachelor pad will be. This news is actually golf-related, and if you're a Tiger Woods fan, it's going to excite you.

Woods announced on his Twitter account Thursday that he will play in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational next week at Firestone. This will be the first time Woods will play competitive golf since May 12, when he withdrew from the Players' Championship after nine holes because of knee and achilles injuries. Woods had repeatedly said that he would not return to the PGA Tour until he was "100 percent" healthy.

Woods tweeted, "Feeling fit and ready to tee it up at Firestone next week. Excited to get back out there!"

The former No. 1 player in the world has had a lot of success at Firestone in his career, winning there seven times. However, he also finished 18-over par at a tournament at Firestone last year, which was the worst par-72 performance of his career.

Woods has yet to announce who will be his new caddie and wing man when he tees it up next week. He fired longtime caddie and friend Steve Williams last week.
