Tiger Woods has made a step toward returning to competitive golf after being cleared by his doctor to work on his short game.

Woods, 41, last played in a competitive tournament at the Dubai Desert Classic in January. He withdrew from the event with back spasms and underwent a fourth back surgery in April.

"[The doctor] gave me the OK to start pitching," Woods wrote on Twitter and posted a video that showed him hitting balls with a wedge from just off the green.
