Tiger Woods returns to competitive golf this week at the Hero World Challenge at Albany in The Bahamas.

He makes his first start since pulling out of the Dubai Desert Classic in January.

The 14-time major winner says he feels pain free after having a fourth back surgery in April.

He tees it up in an exclusive 18-man field containing 16 of the world's top 24 players.

Woods, despite ranking 1199th in the world, will undoubtedly be the star attraction this week.

And reports have been very positive on both his game, and health.

Last week, Brad Faxon played alongside Tiger, DJ and Donald Trump, and told media that Woods actually outdrove DJ on half of the holes they both took out driver.

Patrick Reed played a practice round with Woods on Monday, and said, “He looked excited, excited to be playing golf. I was shocked how fluid his swing looked and how far the golf ball was going. He’s always been a little longer than me, but some of those drives today he got out there.

“He was hitting flighted, flat cuts, high cuts, low draws, high, just soft draws, moving it both ways with his driver. If he starts getting command of that and feeling good, we’re going to have some fun.”

Woods said, "To finally come out on the good side of it, it’s exciting. I am stiffer, I’m fused. But I don’t have the pain and if I don’t have the pain life is so much better.”
