Rational Blog: Thoughts on Golf and the World
Tiger Woods announced on Friday, October 7, 2016 that he will be returning to the PGA Tour. Woods will participate in the Safeway Open, which begins October 13th. In a website update, he states that he hopes to play in the European Tour’s Turkish Airlines Open, held November 3-6. As well as the Hero World Challenge held December 1-4. This is all dependent on his physical recovery.
After his las competitive play at the Wyndham Championship, in 2015, Woods underwent two back surgeries. At his appearance at the Ryder Cup last week, Woods gave no indication of his intentions to play, nor the condition of his health. However, his play of the course showed him to be ready for a return. Before teeing up at the Safeway Open, Woods will participate in the Tiger Woods Invitational, held October 10-11 on the Monterey Peninsula. From there he will kick-start a return to golf that everyone has anxiously been waiting for since over a year ago!
