We’ll see Tiger Woods on the golf course very soon, according to the man himself. Woods announced on Monday that he will play in the 2017 Hero World Challenge, which runs from Nov. 30 – Dec. 3.

Woods, who’s the tournament host, had some fun with the announcement on Twitter:

“I am excited to return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge,” Woods said on his website. “Albany is the perfect setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field. I want to thank Pawan Munjal and Hero MotoCorp for their continued support of this tournament and my foundation. I would also like to thank the fans for their unwavering support during my injury.”

Woods last played competitively at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in February, where he withdrew after the first round due to a back injury. He underwent surgery in April. It will be fascinating to see how he looks upon his return.
