Tiger Woods has announced that he will be playing in the 2023 Hero World Challenge at Albany in the Bahamas, despite undergoing surgery following his withdrawal from the 2023 Masters. Videos of Woods caddying for his son, Charlie, without a noticeable limp on social media have sparked hope that the 15-time major champion would return to the game sooner rather than later.
The Hero World Challenge, an event hosted by Woods and his TGR Ventures, is a non-official PGA Tour event that features a field of 20 of the best players in the world. This year’s tournament will see players like Scottie Scheffler, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Max Homa, Rickie Fowler, Viktor Hovland, and Collin Morikawa competing alongside Woods.
Last season, Woods was unable to participate in the Hero World Challenge due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot. His return to the tournament this year has generated much excitement among golf fans and players alike as they eagerly await his comeback on the course.
