It has been confirmed that Tiger Woods will make his long-awaited return to the PGA Tour in less than two weeks.

The golf legend will play at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, which starts on November 30.

It will be his first PGA Tour start since undergoing ankle surgery in the spring.

Woods has not played since withdrawing from the Masters and having surgery on his right ankle in April.

But after only announcing 19 of the 20 players to take part in the event hosted by Woods himself, the 47-year-old has now taken that last spot.

Woods said of his recovery earlier this month: “My ankle is fine. Where they fused my ankle, I have absolutely no problem whatsoever.

‘That pain is completely gone. It is the other areas that have been compensated for.

‘But in the surrounding areas I had all my problems and I still have them.

“So you fix one, others have to become more hypermobile to get around it, and that can lead to problems.”

Woods has made just five Tour starts since a horrific car accident in 2021 that left him with serious leg injuries.

He has made the cut in four of those tournaments, but has only managed to complete the full 72 holes twice, still struggling to walk comfortably.

It remains to be seen whether Woods will also win it at the PNC Championship in December.

Charlie, 14, won a gold medal at the state high school golf championship on Wednesday

He has played with son Charlie in each of the last three editions of that tournament, which features a two-player best-ball event where participants can use carts – a huge boost for Woods.

On Wednesday, 14-year-old Charlie won a gold medal at the state high school golf championship, something his father did not win in his illustrious career.

Charlie and the Benjamin School golf team won the FHSAA Class A state championship after shooting 78-76 during the two-day tournament.

Charlie, a freshman, placed fourth out of the five golfers on his team and finished 26th overall. This was the fourth state golf title for the Benjamin School, located in Palm Beach Gardens.
