SAN MARTIN, Calif., Oct. 5 (UPI) -- U.S. golfer Tiger Woods, getting ready for his first start in two months, said Wednesday his strength has returned and his left knee injury has healed.
Woods told PGA.com after practicing at CordeValle Resort near San Jose, Calif., site of this week's Frys.com Open, he's ready to resume his winning ways after failing to make the cut at August's PGA Championship in his last appearance.
"I've got my strength back, I got the explosiveness back in the leg," Woods said. "All that's come back. And that's just from training and having time to heal."
It will mark only the ninth start of the year for the 14-time major tourney champion, who has dropped out of the Top 50 in the world rankings. Woods has collected two Top-10 finishes this season, including a fourth-place tie at The Masters.
"I'm happy with how everything has progressed from tee to green," he told the Web site. "I've got a chance to practice and work on everything, which has been good, which is something that I hadn't been able to do for a while. I'm very pleased with every facet of my game," he told the Web site.
