The PGA Tour has officially ended, but unofficially, it’s just getting started. Tiger Woods makes his return this week at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, a tournament Woods hosts. He will play competitive golf for the first time since he withdrew from the Dubai Desert Classic in early 2017. What followed was a tumultuous few months that included his fourth back surgery and a DUI. But all of that is in the rearview mirror now, and Woods sounds ready to get after it again.
Woods drove the standard four seventh gap here at Albany, the separation of 350 yards counterbalance by a helping wind implying that shot was amazing as opposed to noteworthy. From 20ft, Woods holed out for a falcon. A sprinkling of praise went before a stifled Woods affirmation. This was not really the sixteenth at Augusta National in 2005 yet another, though little, help both to the 41-year-old’s certainty and sense that “Tiger’s back” now has an out and out new, positive importance.
This is about as good as it gets for an 18-player field. Of the top 10 players in the world, eight of them will be in attendance. Only Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm will not be playing. Plus, we get the juice of Tiger Woods. The only thing missing is a trash-talking Phil Mickelson.
Woods’ language has been encouraging. He said on Tuesday that even though he returned this time last year, he was still in some pain and still incredibly slow with his swing as a result of it. He claims that has changed and that he’s hitting the ball as far as he used to. I’m in a perpetual state of “I’ll believe it when I see it” when it comes to Woods, but the talk thus far has been pretty good.
