Tiger Woods confirms he will return to golf in December at Hero World Challenge
Woods will join a host of other elite golfers in the Bahamas for his return to golf
Tiger Woods confirmed his return to golf on Tuesday in a press release about the Hero World Challenge.
Woods will return for the event, hosted by his foundation, which will be played Dec. 1-4 in the Bahamas. This has been the plan since Woods withdrew from the Safeway Open last month, but Woods' confirmed it in writing this week.
"I am excited to make my return at the Hero World Challenge at Albany and play in this terrific tournament," Woods said in a press release.
Joining Woods in the Bahamas will be Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson, Hideki Matsuyama, Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose, Jimmy Walker, Matt Kuchar, Russell Knox, Brandt Snedeker, Louis Oosthuizen, J.B. Holmes, Emiliano Grillo and Zach Johnson.
So basically, the United States Ryder Cup team and Matsuyama.
This is the perfect event for Woods to return to after what will have been a 16-month layoff. The media won't be as excruciating as it is at normal events, and as tournament host, Woods can control the show. I've long been hopeful for the last chapter of Woods' career. This could be a great beginning to it.
