Tiger Woods had arthroscopic surgery last week on his left knee to repair what he described as minor cartilage damage.

The surgery was not believed to be serious, and Woods said on Twitter that he expected to return to practice.

The surgery should not affect Woods’s plan to return to competition in the Zozo Championship in Japan in October. “I am walking now and hope to resume practice in the next few weeks,” Woods said in the statement. “I look forward to traveling and playing in Japan in October.”Woods will serve as captain of the United States team in the Presidents Cup in Australia in December. He had previously left the door open on whether he would select himself to play in the event.

This is the fifth surgery to his left knee — one more surgery than Woods has had on his back — dating to 1994 when he was a student at Stanford. His agent at Excel Sports, Mark Steinberg, said the knee had been irritating him for the last few months.

Woods had the surgery last week during the Tour Championship. Woods, who won the Masters in April for his 15th major title, did not finish among the top 30 players in the FedEx Cup who qualified for the final event at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta.
