Tiger Woods announced on Tuesday that he had surgery performed on his left knee last week to repair minor cartilage damage.

"I expect Tiger to make a full recovery," Dr.Vern Cooley, who performed the procedure, said in a statement.

"We did what was needed, and also examined the entire knee. There were no additional problems."

Woods, 43, concluded his 2019 PGA season on Aug. 18 with a tied-for-37th finish at the BMW Championship. He finished the campaign ranked No. 42 in the FedEx Cup standings.

Woods plans to return in late October to participate in the first-ever ZoZo Championship in Japan. He will also captain the United States team at the 2019 Presidents Cup in Australia later this year.

"I would like to thank Dr. Cooley and his team," Woods said. "I'm walking now and hope to resume practice in the next few weeks. I look forward to traveling and playing in Japan in October."
