Tiger Woods announced on Twitter on Thursday that he will return to action at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village next week.

The 15-time major champion has been out of action on the PGA Tour for five months, with his last appearance at the Genesis Open ending with a disappointing 6-over par round, to finish 11-over and dead last out of those who made the cut into the weekend.

Due to his constant battle with injuries, Woods has to choose which tournaments he plays in wisely as competing in major championship is his main focus, as he looks to conquer Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 major titles.

The Memorial Tournament will mark back-to-back events at Muirfield Village, with the Workday Charity Open being played at the venue this week.

Woods has won the Memorial Tournament four times and if there is a course for him to kick-start his year it's Muirfield Village, where the field will be competing for a total prize purse of $9.3 million.

"I’m looking forward to playing in the Memorial Tournament next week. I’ve missed going out and competing with the guys and can’t wait to get back out there," tweeted Woods.

The 44-year-old will be looking to find some form with a run of huge tournaments coming up on the PGA Tour, which sees the Memorial Tournament followed by the 3M Open, before heading to Memphis for the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational, the final tournament before the US PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park.
