Tiger Woods will tee it up Thursday at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, marking his first PGA Tour start in more than 15 months.
Woods’ last tournament was the Wyndham Championship in August 2015, and he missed the entire 2016 season with a back injury.
The return is the latest in a growing line of comebacks for Woods, who has battled injury and inconsistency, really since 2009. While he had a strong 2013 season, winning five times, he hasn’t won since and hasn’t claimed a major tournament title since 2008. He made just six of 11 cuts in 2015, finishing in the top 25 just three times.
Woods and a host of PGA stars — including his playing partner, U.S. Ryder Cup hero Patrick Reed — are in the Bahamas for this weekend’s tournament. Woods and Reed are scheduled for a noon ET tee time Thursday.
The Golf Channel has TV coverage of the tournament starting Thursday at 1:30 p.m., and Tiger fans also can watch his return online. Here’s how.
