Tiger Woods confirms he will return at Hero World Challenge this month

Tiger Woods has confirmed he will make his return to the PGA Tour at the Hero World Challenge on November 30 at Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas. 

Woods, 47, has been recovering from ankle surgery ever since April 2023.

That came just days after he had withdrawn prior to the final round of The Masters

Woods has been caddying for his young cub Charlie Woods in junior tournaments in recent weeks. 

Charlie helped his Benjamin school team win a fourth state championship in Florida this week.

He revealed his ankle was "fine" but still sore from having walked four rounds with his son.

The Hero World Challenge is a limited-field event and will feature 20 of the world's best players including defending champion Viktor Hovland. 

Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele have decided to WD from the tournament and their spaces have been filled by Lucas Glover and Justin Rose.

With Woods taking up the host exemption spot in the Hero World Challenge, he is now also expected to tee it up alongside Charlie at the father-son PNC Championship just before Christmas. 

Woods and Rory McIlroy were dealt a big blow ahead of their new tech-infused TGL starting up in January 2024 as the roof of the TGL's SoFi Center has collapsed overnight.

The TGL is a new tech-inspired golf league that has been launched in partnership with the PGA Tour to provide golf fans with a new way to watch the game they love. 

Devised by Woods and McIlroy, the new league is set to take place in the state-of-the-art purpose-built facility, the SoFi Center in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, USA. 

The venue will give up to 2,000 golf fans the chance to spectate up close and personal thanks to a huge virtual simulator and short-game complex area.

But those plans have suffered a huge blow in the lead up to the first night, which is now less than two months away.
