Tiger Woods announced on Monday he will make his return to competitive golf at the November 30-December 3 Hero World Challenge at Albany in the Bahamas.

Woods, who continues to recover from back surgery and has not played competitively in nine months, will be part of an elite 18-player field, Marca reported.

“I am excited to return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge,” 14-time major champion Woods said in a statement. “Albany is the perfect setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field.”

The 41-year-old American has only played six competitive rounds in the past two years while trying to recover from multiple back surgeries.

Last year Woods also made a comeback at the same event, ending nearly 16 months on the sidelines, and finished 15th in a final field of 17.

He showed flashes of the brilliant golf that carried him to 14 major titles. However, he also delivered the inept, often finding sandy waste areas off the tee or with his approach shots.

As his back issues continued, Woods returned to the PGA Tour in January. He missed the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open and shot an opening-round 77 a week later in Dubai before withdrawing.

In April he announced that he had undergone a fourth back operation in three years. The winner of five tournaments in 2013, Woods has played just 19 events since.
