Tiger Woods is ready to step up his recovery by resuming ‘full practice’ after his knee surgery last month.

The US legend underwent arthroscopic surgery in August to repair damage to his cartilage in his left knee following a disappointing end the the season that saw him miss out on qualification for the FedEx Cup.

However, appearing on talk show Good Morning America, he revealed to host Michael Strachan that he is firmly on the road to recovery.

“I got the clearance last week to start full practice, and so I played nine holes the other day,” Woods told Strachan,

“It’s sore, yeah, but now I can start lifting and getting my muscle back and getting my weight up.”

When announcing the surgery in late August, Woods said that his target is to return at the Zozo Championship in Japan.
