After much speculation, Tiger Woods confirmed on Monday that he will be returning to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge in a few weeks time. Tiger’s plethora of recent swing videos have created a lot of hype in the golf world, inciting lengthy debates about his next comeback. The Hero World Challenge will provide a comfortable setting for Tiger’s newest return after a lengthy absence, following yet another back surgery.
The event is perhaps golf’s most exclusive field, with invitations limited to 18 of the finest players in the world. The same tournament served as the platform for Tiger’s return last year, where he showed sparks of brilliance during a Friday 65. It would appear that Tiger’s upcoming comeback is one last roll of the dice to get back into the winner’s circle on the PGA Tour. Regardless of results, it would be fantastic to see Tiger injury-free in 2018 – and the Hero World Challenge will be a great indicator as to how the twilight chapter pans out in the engrossing story of Tiger Woods.
