Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Speaking publicly for the first time since a fourth back surgery last month, Tiger Woods posted a status update to his personal website Wednesday afternoon -- and he sounded optimistic about his long-term future. "It is hard to express how much better I feel," he said. "It was instant nerve relief. I haven't felt this good in years." As to whether he believes he can return to competitive golf, Woods didn't mince words: "Unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again."

Tiger Woods' latest surgery provided "instant nerve relief" the 14-time major champion said Wednesday in a statement on his web site. It's been nearly a month since Woods underwent back fusion surgery on April 19. That was his fourth back surgery since March, 2014. The surgery, according to Woods' surgeon and physiotherapist, was successful. "It's just a matter of not screwing up and letting it fuse," Woods said. As for any retirement talk, Woods made clear that he has no intention of hanging up his golf spikes. "But, I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again," he said.
