Golf fans, rejoice! The legendary Tiger Woods is set to make a comeback to professional golf later this month at the Hero World Challenge, an event he hosts in the Bahamas. This exciting news was shared on the TGR Live account and retweeted by Woods himself.
Tiger Woods has not competed professionally since withdrawing during the third round of the Masters in April, following which he underwent subtalar fusion surgery on his ankle. While he had been seen on the golf course, mostly caddying for his son, Charlie, this announcement confirms his return to competitive golf.
This development also suggests that Woods may once again team up with his son, Charlie, for the PNC Championship in December. Charlie recently helped his high school team win a state title, and the father-son duo’s appearance in the PNC Championship would be highly anticipated.
Woods provided a recent health update, stating that his surgically treated ankle was in excellent condition. However, he mentioned ongoing issues with surrounding areas that had caused problems in the past.
The Hero World Challenge, taking place from November 30 to December 3 at the Albany Golf Course, will feature a 20-man field, including players like Justin Rose and Lucas Glover. Victor Hovland is the two-time defending champion of this prestigious event. Golf enthusiasts are undoubtedly eager to see Tiger Woods back in action on the course.
