(CNN) — Tiger Woods has revealed he underwent knee surgery last week and says that he hopes to return to golf in October.
The Masters champion announced he had surgery to repair minor cartilage damage in his left knee.
The 43-year-old stated he will return in the new event — that the Zozo Championship of the PGA Tour — in Japan in 24-27 October.
“I am walking and hope to resume clinic in the upcoming few weeks,” the 15-time big winner said on Twitter. “I look forward to playing and traveling Japan in October.”
Woods has experienced a number of procedures on his knee over the duration of his profession, and in recent years has undergone four surgeries such as spinal fusion surgery in 2017.
His surgeon Dr. Vern Cooley said he expected Woods to create a”full recovery.”
“We did exactly what was required, and examined the whole knee. There were no additional difficulties,” added Dr. Cooley, that was also part of the team that carried his reconstructive ACL surgery on his left knee following his 2008 US Open victory.

Woods finished an 11-year wait when he won the Masters but since he has missed the cut at the PGA Championship and the Open.
He pulled from the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier this year with a neck strain and complained of stiffness and soreness in his back at the Open.
“I’m just not moving well,” he told colleagues at Royal Portrush. “It’s only the way it’s. It’s just father time and a number of processes I have had more than time. It’s only the way it’s likely to be.”
Woods withdrew at New Jersey from the Northern Trust of this month citing a negative strain but returned to the BMW Championship at Medinah Country Club.
He failed to qualify at East Lake, where he clinched his first victory last September.
