Are You Ready For Tiger's Latest Comeback
We now know that Tiger Woods will make his long-awaited comeback to competitive golf for the first time since The Masters when he plays at the Hero World Challenge.
The tournament, which the 15-time major winner hosts, runs between November 30 and December 3 in the Bahamas.
As expected, Woods has taken the final spot in the 20-man field and will now tee it up for the first time since withdrawing at Augusta National due to injury. We shouldn’t expect too much but you can be sure that Woods would not be playing unless he believed he could give a good account of himself.
Woods had his right ankle surgically repaired after The Masters and missed the final three majors of the year - the PGA Championship, the US Open and the Open Championship.
Speaking earlier this month, he said he was now pain free in his ankle but that other problems had emerged.
Woods said: "My ankle is fine. Where they fused my ankle, I have absolutely zero issue whatsoever. That pain is completely gone. It's the other areas that have been compensated for."
He compared the problem to when he had fusion surgery on his lower back, saying: "All the surrounding areas is where I had all my problems and still do.
"You fix one, others have to become more hypermobile to get around it, and it can lead to issues.”
Woods has competed in five tournaments since his 2021 car crash but completed a full 72 holes just twice.
