Tiger Woods makes golf course return after hint dropped over possible comeback date

Tiger Woods has not featured on the PGA Tour since suffering an ankle injury at the Masters Tournament in April, and in recent weeks the American has ramped up his preparation to return

Tiger Woods has once again been spotted back on the golf course, as the 82-time PGA Tour winner continues to recover from a string of ongoing injury problems that have left him unable to compete.

Since withdrawing from the Masters in April due to an ankle injury in the third round, Woods has not participated in any competitive events. The 15-time major champion had surgery on the problem in the days that followed, and he has been recuperating ever since.

The 47-year-old has been spotted on the golf course in recent weeks holding a club, and his most recent sighting was on the Albany Golf Club’s practice area in the Bahamas.

Woods was out in the Caribbean to feature at an event promoted by one of his sponsors, Monster Energy, as a picture circulated of the American swinging freely on the range. The course in question is home to the Hero World Challenge, a PGA Tour event hosted by the 2019 Masters champion each year.

The event’s 20-man field was revealed last month, but only 19 of the competitors’ names were listed on the entry list. The competition begins on November 30. With the note “TBA tournament exemption” on it, the twentieth and final spot was left open.

Rumor has it that tournament host Woods is currently holding the spot in question empty. Woods is expected to decide closer to the event whether or not he will be able to compete. After giving an update on his fitness last week, Woods himself broke his silence amid ongoing rumors about his future.

Woods acknowledged that his ankle injury had fully healed, but he is still having issues in other areas of his body. The five-time Masters champion said, “My ankle is fine.” “I haven’t had any problems at all where they fused my ankle. That hurt has totally disappeared.

“The other areas have received compensation. But my problems began and continue to be in the surrounding areas.” In the sweltering Georgia heat, Woods famously hobbled around Augusta National before deciding to withdraw from the tournament due to his difficulties.

In the recent World Wide Technology Championship, the American’s fitness appears to have significantly improved, as evidenced by his easy navigation of El Cardonal at Diamante and his caddying of his son Charlie during a 54-hole junior tournament earlier this month.

Following this week’s plunge to a career low in the Official World Golf Rankings, Woods will undoubtedly be eager to get back into the race. He fell in the world rankings during his PGA Tour absence, and he is now ranked 1,307th, having previously fallen to 1,294th in February before making a comeback at the Genesis Invitational.
