Report: Tiger Woods to return to golf next month

Tiger Woods plans to return to professional golf very soon. How will he do in yet another return to the game? 

Tiger Woods has announced on his website that he plans to return to the Safeway Open on Oct. 13-16. This marks the fourth time Woods has returned from being absent from golf, due to injury.

He also “hopes” to play in the Turkish Open which is from Nov. 3-6. Finally, he’ll try to play in his own tournament, the Hero World Challenge which is from Dec. 1-4.

The Tiger Woods Invitational which is a one day tournament, is another event he is considering. That tournament is from Oct. 10-11.

If Woods returns at these tournaments, how will he fare? He’ll likely struggle early on, especially with the depth of the PGA Tour nowadays.

Woods last competed at the Wyndham Championship in 2015 and finished T-10. However, in 2015, he also missed the cut in three out of the four major championships.

That’s kind of where it matters the most. However, if Woods does return soon, it’ll certainly be interesting to see how he does, even if it is for a third or fourth time.

How will he putt? That’s going to be the biggest question going into his return.

He’s one of the greatest putters of all-time and that has always been his strongest suit. It’s also the reason why he has won so many major championships.

Another thing is his clutch ability. Can he close a tournament that he is leading?

A combination of this, and his putting is what’s ultimately going to decide where Woods is at with his game. It will also help if he can hit some fairways.

However, with how good his putting can be, he’s capable of avoiding bad scores. Right now however, he’s just going to be another golfer on tour, as the competition is extremely fierce now, and he still needs to work his swing out.

Nonetheless, it’ll be interesting for the golf world to see the return of Woods, yet again.
