Justin Rose believes Tiger Woods will return to competitive action in “good shape” after catching up with the former world number one.
Woods is among the 18-man field at next week’s Hero World Challenge, as the 41-year-old takes to the fairways again after eight months on the treatment table with a long-term back issue.
The American’s back problem has plagued him for three years and seen him drop out of the world’s top 10,000 players.
But 2016 Olympic gold medalist Rose is hopeful that Woods’ latest comeback will prove to be a successful one.

"I saw him a couple of weeks ago, he looked good," said Rose.
"A couple of my friends have been playing with him and said that he's in good shape.
"It's always difficult coming off a full year or whatever it's been without a scorecard in your hand. But he looks fit, healthy and I think from there he can play golf, right?
"He's obviously got all the talent in the world and I think he's motivated too, which is great. If he puts his mind to something I'm sure he can achieve what his goals are.
"It's obviously great to have Tiger back, it's the perfect event for him to come back to.
"It's obviously a very small field. It's pretty low-key, if there's ever a low-key tournament for him.”
