On Monday, Tiger Woods announced that he will make his return to competitive golf at Hero World Challenge. The tournament will take place at Albany Golf Club in Bahamas from November 30- December 3.
The winner of 79 PGA Tour titles has not played since February due to a lingering back injury. Tiger Woods also underwent a fourth career back surgery that sidelined him for the remainder of 2016-17 season.
He announced his return on Twitter along with a post that reads, “I’d like to thank the committee of 1 for picking myself and Daniel Berger to play in this year’s HeroWorldChallenge.”
“I am excited to return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge. Albany is the perfect setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field. I want to thank Pawan Munjal and Hero MotoCorp for their continued support of this tournament and my foundation. I would also like to thank the fans for their unwavering support during my injury.”, the 14-time major champion said in a statement.
Woods has also posted some videos on Twitter in which he is hitting a wedge shot and then driver. In addition to this, he is also firing a “stinger” shot with a long iron. On Monday, Woods’s agent Mark Steinberg told USA Today Sports, “He’s just been progressing. He’s excited. He wouldn’t commit today to playing in the Hero World Challenge if he didn’t feel like he was ready.”
We wish a good luck to the Tiger Woods for the Hero World Challenge and hope that he give brilliant performance.
