WOODS In early September, sports fans were treated to the best-sounding words in golf: Tiger Woods is back. After undergoing a second surgical procedure 15 months ago, it was anybody’s guess if and when Woods would return to competitive golf. But that all changed three months ago when Woods pleasantly surprised the sports world and announced his return to the game. Of course, the TGR LIVE-run Hero World Challenge at Albany benefiting the Tiger Woods Foundation, Tavistock Foundation and the Albany Scholars Program, was also on his playing checklist. As was his participation in the Tiger Woods Invitational charity event. Woods’ last competition on the TOUR was at the Wyndham Championship in 2015 when he shot a final-round, even-par 70 to finish tied for 10th. The 14-time major champion and winner of 79 TOUR events has spent his time off with his children, Sam and Charlie, and has focused on his golf course design, the 20th anniversary of the Tiger Woods Foundation and his book about the 1997 Masters Tournament. For golf fans around the world, Woods’ return to the golf course brings a new level of excitement and anticipation as he hits the links at this year’s Hero World Challenge.
