Tiger Woods is reportedly considering a return to professional golf later this month at the WGC Accenture Match Play in Arizona.

The 34-year-old has also reportedly left his sex rehab clinic in Mississippi after six weeks - with wife Elin apparently collecting him from the facility.

Woods has not played since lurid revelations about his private life surfaced in November following his involvement in a late-night car crash outside his Florida home.

But the Melbourne Herald reported that the world number one's management had contacted event organisers about Woods playing in the knockout tournament at Dove Mountain, Tucson.

And the BBC's golf correspondent Iain Carter has claimed that "a reliable source says he will play in Arizona".

No official confirmation has been forthcoming, however, with the US Tour insisting that they have had "no indication of when or where Tiger Woods will make his return", while WGC Match Play organisers also refused to say that the 14-times Major winner will take part.

"We don't know anything officially yet, but wouldn't that be nice?" the event's executive director, Wade Duncan, told PA.

"We're still a little bit in the dark. I can't confirm or deny anything."
