Tiger Woods has confirmed he will be headlining a six-man exhibition golf match ahead of next week's Hero World Challenge - a tournament the 15-time major champion annually hosts in the Bahamas. 

Woods will take on in-form Jon Rahm, Bryson DeChambeau, Gary Woodland, Jordan Spieth and Henrik Stenson in an exhibition match on Monday, two days before the start of the tournament starting on Wednesday and finishing on Saturday. 

The "Hero Shot at Baha Mar" exhibition match will call on the six players to use a wedge and hit a target that is set 100 yards away over a pool at the tournament's host hotel. 

Points will be awarded to players on proximity, with 100 points for the outer ring, 200 for the inner, and 500 for the bullseye. 

Each player will get six shots at the target, with the final ball worth double points to add to the excitement. 

There will be three head-to-head knockout matches to begin with, and then three players will progress to round two. 

The worst player score of the three players in round two will then be eliminated, setting up a grand final between the top two players who will battle each other in a head-to-head match.

The tournament will start on Wednesday and finish up on Saturday in a bid to allow those players competing in the upcoming Presidents Cup more time to travel and prepare for their trip to Royal Melbourne, Australia.
