Last week, Tiger Woods hosted the first ever Nexus Cup at Liberty National for his TGR Foundation. It was his first appearance on a golf course since his latest knee surgery and in the interview with Michael Strahan of Good Morning America, he told Strahan that he has been cleared for all golf activities.

“I got the clearance last week to start full practice, and so I played nine holes the other day,” Woods told Michael Strahan. “It’s sore, yeah, but now I can start lifting and getting my muscle back and getting my weight up.”

This is the fifth knee surgery for Tiger and was an arthroscopic surgery during the Tour Championship to repair minor cartilage damage. Add that to the four surgeries on his back and you have to be amazed at how much Tiger has worked to get back to a top contender in the PGA.

What’s next for Tiger?

  • The Challenge: Japan Skins by Golf TV on October 21st.
  • PGA Tour Zozo Championship
  • TGR Foundation: Hero World Challenge
  • Presidents Cup in December
