The PGA Tour have announced that next week's Memorial Tournament in Dublin Ohio, which was supposed to be the first since the circuit's return from a three-month Covid-19 hiatus to include spectators, will instead be held without fans.
Woods, 44, hasn't played on the Tour since a 67th-place finish at the Genesis Invitational in mid-February. "I've missed going out and competing with the guys and can't wait to get back out there", tweeted Woods.
Woods said he felt stiffness in the cold weather.

On the other hand, many schools have come up with an innovative model to conduct classes - in-person or online - this year. The modifications, which impact F-1 and M-1 visas, were announced via a post on the ICE website on Monday.
As part of the Tour's health and safety plan, Woods will be "strongly encouraged" to take a Covid-19 test prior to departing from Florida for OH and once on-site, he will be required to take another before being cleared to practise and play.
This year's tournament will be held without spectators due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, after the PGA Tour confirmed that they had abandoned plans to allow fans into the OH event.
With Woods having played a limited schedule in recent seasons, the Memorial start could be his key tuneup for the PGA Championship, set for Harding Park in San Francisco from August 6-9.
He is now 41st in the FedEx Cup standings and 14th in the Official World Golf Ranking. He also played at Torrey Pines and Riviera.
The PGA Tour is playing another event, the Workday Charity Open, this week at Muirfield Village, which Nicklaus designed in the early 1970s.
