Tiger Woods announced this week an update on his annual Hero World Challenge golf tournament, which will take place in December.
The news was shared on social media by the 15-time major winner, who is currently recovering from a catastrophic vehicle accident.
Woods’ tournament, The Hero World Challenge, will go on as planned, with a larger field of competitors.
The tournament, which will benefit Woods’ foundation, will now include a total of 20 participants. The tournament will be held at Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas from December 2 to 5.
Woods tweeted earlier this week, “Excited to welcome a bigger field to the Hero World Challenge in Albany this year.”
When Woods will be able to play golf again is unknown. Woods’ catastrophic car accident in Southern California occurred over a year ago in December.
Woods has made great strides in his comeback. He was recently observed walking without his injured leg supported.
“Tiger is showing indications of improvement!” On his way to a doctor’s appointment in L.A., Woods was seen putting weight on his injured right leg,” Golf.com tweeted.
Woods previously stated that this recuperation was one of the most difficult and painful things he’s ever undertaken.
In an interview with Golf Digest earlier this year, Woods stated of his rehab process, “This has been a whole new beast.” “Because of my previous injuries, I’m more familiar with the rehab process, but this was the most agonizing thing I’ve ever gone through.”
We can only hope that Woods’ recovery continues to go well and that he returns to the course soon.
