Tiger Woods has named where he hopes to begin a comeback.

The former No. 1 golfer in the world hasn't played a PGA tournament in  over a year . But he wrote Wednesday his goal is to play in the Safeway Open in mid-October, which marks the beginning of the next PGA season.

And he might not be just one-and-done. He also said he aims to play in a tournament in November and another in December.

Woods has been trying to find his game again after undergoing multiple back surgeries in 2015.

He wrote on  his website , "My rehabilitation is to the point where I'm comfortable making plans, but I still have work to do."

Woods' return could be welcome news for the PGA, which has had the challenge of replacing the sport's most recognizable face.

Major tournaments  have staggered  in ratings when Woods was absent.

Coincidentally, the  last PGA tournament  he played in back in August 2015 got a huge  ratings spike  when he briefly led the field.

Woods is currently ranked No. 711 in the world.
