is relishing a return to Torrey Pines this week in his first PGA Tour event of 2019.
Woods won the last of his 14 Majors - the 2008 US Open - at the California
And he will contest the Farmers Insurance Open, starting on Thursday, four months after securing a memorable victory in the Tour Championship.
'It's great to be back,' Woods said.
'I haven't played on the Tour since September, so it's been a while, and I am looking forward to getting started, looking forward to getting out there and playing.
'A lot of it (off-season) has been training, trying to get stronger.
'Last year, towards the end of the season, I got really tired because I didn't expect to play that much golf at the end and I didn't train for it.
'This off-season, I spent a lot of time in the gym and I've got a lot stronger and feel like my legs are there where they need to be, which they weren't at the end of the season.'
Always fun to put new toys in the bag. Excited and ready to get 2019 started. #TeamTaylorMade
