Medical advisers clear Tiger Woods to begin working on game
Cleared: Tiger Woods, by his medical advisers, to return to full practice, he said in an interview with Michael Strahan on “Good Morning America.” Woods, 43, underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in August. It was the fifth operation on the knee. Woods is scheduled to play Jason Day, Hideki Matsuyama and Rory McIlroy in “The Challenge” on Oct. 21 at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club in Inzai, Japan, site of the PGA Tour's inaugural Zozo Championship later that week. It would be Woods’ first official event since the BMW Championship in mid-August. Woods, the reigning Masters champion, ranks second all-time in major championships (15) and PGA Tour victories (81). His next victory would pull him even with the late Sam Snead as the all-time victory leader.
