(Reuters) - Tiger Woods, out since March after having back surgery, will return to competitive golf at next week's Quicken Loans National in Bethesda, Maryland, the former world number one said on Friday.

Woods had treatment for a pinched nerve in his back that had troubled him for months, a procedure that forced him to miss the year's first two majors.
