Weeks after withdrawing from the Genesis Invitational, Tiger Woods was back in action at the illustrious Seminole Pro-Member. 

The mythical tournament, once dubbed by Davis Love III as "the fifth major of the year", drew a blockbuster field featuring greater depth than most PGA Tour events.

Notable attendees included Rory McIlroy, Nelly Korda, Collin Morikawa, Matt Fitzpatrick and Sungjae Im.

Woods was teamed up with PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh, with the pair playing alongside Justin Thomas and his partner, tech billionaire Mike Walrath.

The single-round event was played at the exclusive Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida.

The star-studded field featured a rich tapestry of players from the worlds of business and entertainment, including seven-time Superbowl winner Tom Brady and two-time NBA champion Shane Battier.

Frank Edwards and Mackenzie Hughes took home the gross event with a better ball score of 64, while John Pinkham and Erik van Rooyen won the net tournament with a score of 62.

Further back in the field, Woods and Waugh finished T44 in the gross with a score of 70, level with Ernie Els and South African billionaire businessman Johann Rupert.

In the net event, Woods and Waugh faired slightly better, finishing T-33 with a score of 67.

Despite finishing back in the pack, Woods reportedly hit a number of decent shots during the round, especially on a par-5 when he nearly made an albatross on the 15th

Woods participated in the event, having recently confirmed he would not be playing in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. 

The decision came only weeks after he was forced to withdraw from the Genesis Invitational on the second day due to flu-like symptoms and dehydration.
