INZAI CITY, Japan (AP) Tiger Woods is returning from another surgical procedure on his left knee - his fifth on the same problem spot.

"Unfortunately, I've been down this road with my knee before," Woods said Monday. "This is my fifth operation on it. I understand what it takes to come back from it. It's been nice to have movement again and not having it catch and lock up."

Woods, who had arthroscopic surgery two months ago, plays the made-for-television "The Challenge: Japan Skins" event on Monday, and the Zozo Championship beginning on Thursday - the first full PGA Tour event in Japan.
