Tiger Woods will play not once, but twice, before the year is out. 

It was announced last week that Woods will make his much-anticipated competitive return at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

The 15-time major champion has not played since withdrawing from the Masters in April and undergoing subtalar fusion surgery in his right ankle.

But he has now revealed that his ankle is “completely pain free” as he steps up his recovery ahead of an imminent comeback.

And Woods has now committed to playing in the PNC Championship, the PGA Tour’s team event in Orlando.

He will play alongside his 14-year-old son Charlie for the fourth consecutive year in the tournament, two weeks after hosting the Hero World Challenge.

It has quickly become one of Woods’ favourite events as he gets to tee it up with Charlie, whose own golf journey he is following closely.

“It is an amazing gift to be able to share my love of golf with Charlie and we genuinely do look forward to playing in the PNC Championship all year,” said Woods.

• Charlie Woods does something even Tiger didn’t

“Competing together against a field of so many golfing greats and their families, is so special.”

The father-son duo finished in eighth in this event last year and finished runners-up in 2021.

The PNC Championship is run by the PGA Tour Champions, so Woods will be able to ride a cart in this event if he so desires.

The tournament is for past major champions and Players Championship winners, and Woods will be joined in the field this year by the likes of John Daly, Vijay Singh, Justin Thomas, Nelly Korda and Padraig Harrington.

Tiger Woods schedule 2023
