Tiger Woods teases a return to golf five months after his horrific automobile accident.
The Hero World Challenge will be back this year, according to Tiger Woods.
Following a horrific car accident in February, Tiger Woods has confirmed that he will host the Hero World Challenge event in November. The event in Albany, Bahamas, which was postponed last year due to the coronavirus outbreak, will return in 2021, according to the joint most successful PGA Tour golfer of all time.
Since sustaining life-changing injuries in a car accident in Los Angeles five months ago, after hosting the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club the day before, the 15-time major winner has not been seen at a golf event.
Despite stating that he will host the tournament in the Bahamas later this year, there has been no news on whether the 45-year-old will compete in the field, which has been increased to 20 from 18 for the 2021 edition.
The 45-year-old did clarify that the current Players’ champion, the major winners in 2020 and 2021, and the reigning champion would all be in this year’s tournament’s 20-man field.
As a result of their previous triumphs, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama, Phil Mickelson, and Jon Rahm, as well as 2019 World Challenge champion Henrik Stenson, will all be guaranteed a spot.
Woods has only appeared four times on the PGA Tour since his last triumph at the 2019 ZOZO Championship, which matched Sam Snead’s PGA Tour title record of 82, after ongoing back problems, the Covid-19 epidemic, and a car accident put an end to his glittering career.
After suffering “open fractures affecting the upper and lower of the tibia and fibula bones” in a fall in February of this year, many questioned if Woods would ever be able to return to the Tour.
As a result, the 2019 Masters champion had to have “major surgery” on his afflicted right leg in order to be able to use it properly again.
As a result, golf fans all over the world were given a major lift last week when Woods was photographed outside of a Beverly Hills hotel applying “substantial weight” to his surgically repaired leg.
Rickie Fowler, Woods’ former Ryder Cup partner and close friend, confirmed the 45-year-injuries old’s were improving after he gave a week previously. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
