Tiger Woods, the renowned golf icon, will be participating in the Hero World Challenge, an event he hosts in the Bahamas. This marks his return to competitive golf since his last appearance at the Masters. He shared his decision on social media this past Saturday.
“Tournament host @TigerWoods to play in the 2023 #Hero WorldChallenge,” a post on Twitter, which is being rebranded as ‘X’ said, adding that Justin Rose and Lucas Glover would round out the 20-man field for the November 30-December 3 event at Albany in the Bahamas.
Following a severe car crash in 2021 resulting in significant leg injuries, Tiger Woods remained sidelined until the 2022 Masters, where he secured a 47th-place finish.
During this year’s Masters in April, Woods withdrew during the third round and subsequently underwent ankle surgery later that month to address arthritis stemming from his 2021 injuries.
Struggling to navigate four-round courses since his return from the accident, Woods, who shares the PGA Tour victories record with Sam Snead at 82, encountered difficulty. However, he did participate as a caddie for his son Charlie in a 54-hole tournament in November. Additionally, prior to last week’s PGA Tour event in Mexico, which was the first event played on a course he designed, Woods made an appearance.
Notably, at El Cardonal at Diamonte, Woods was observed comfortably navigating a lengthy staircase and interacting with players, including Stewart Cink, the 2009 British Open winner, who noted Woods was focused and back to practicing.
Since the California car crash that led to multiple breaks in his right tibia and fibula, Woods has only participated in five PGA Tour events. Although he made the cut four times, he completed the full 72 holes just twice.
This period of limited activity has resulted in a drastic drop in Woods’ world ranking to a career-low of 1,307th.
