Tiger Woods will have regular caddie Steve Williams on his bag for this week's Nissan Open in California.

Williams, who has been with Woods since 1999, has recovered after hurting his hand in a racing car accident in his native New Zealand last month.

He needed surgery on his left hand after his vehicle overturned and hit a safety fence at the Baypark Speedway.

Woods told his official website: "Steve recently had 48 stitches removed and said he's ready to go."

The former world number one ended a PGA Tour title drought with victory at the Buick Invitational last month and is looking forward to this week's event at Pacific Palisades.

"I would love to win at Riviera Country Club, where I've come close a couple times," said the 29-year-old following a three-week break from tournament golf.

"I played in my first pro event there when I was 16 and have great memories of the course.

"I have enjoyed my three weeks off, but it's time to go back to work this week."

Woods added: "I feel good about the swing changes I have made with Hank Haney and I think my overall game has improved."

Woods has been working with Haney to complete the second revamp of his swing since he turned professional in 1996.
