Tiger Woods will make his return to competitive golf for the upcoming Hero World Challenge, organizers announced earlier this week.
Woods, who underwent ankle surgery after limping his way through the Masters last April, will be making his first competitive golf appearance in roughly seven months. The 47-year-old has suffered a barrage of injuries over the past several years following a devastating 2021 car accident.
The tournament, which is hosted annually by Woods with a portion of the proceeds going to the Tiger Woods Foundation, will be played in the Bahamas at the Albany Golf Course from Nov. 30-Dec. 3.
Tiger Woods to win Hero World Challenge
Twenty golfers will be competing in the exclusive event that will feature several of the top players in the official World Golf Rankings, including a few tournament exemptions.
Viktor Hovland has claimed back-to-back titles at the event with Scottie Scheffler finishing as the runner-up both times. The pair have the shortest outright odds to win this year’s event and Woods is listed with the longest odds at +5000.
Woods boasts 82 PGA Tour wins on his resume, and although the Hero World Challenge is part of the PGA Tour schedule, it’s not an official event. Woods is currently tied with Sam Snead for the most wins in PGA Tour history.
