TIGER WOODS | PGA TOUR

It’s official: Tiger Woods WILL play at next week’s Safeway Open in his first PGA Tour start for 14 months.


The 40-year-old, who last featured at the Wyndham Championship last August, said in a statement on his website last month that he ‘hoped’ to play the PGA Tour opener, while also going on to compete in the Turkish Airlines Open in November.

And today, before the 5pm ET deadline to register, it was announced that he was formally committed to the tournament.

Woods was on-site at last week’s at the Ryder Cup, assisting captain Davis Love III as USA coasted to a 17-11 victory over Europe at Hazeltine, but refused to give any indication as to the state of his game or his plans.

It was understood that Woods didn’t want to hit balls, despite encouragement from some of the US players, so as not to overshadow anything regarding team.

What’s more, if social media rumours are to be believed, Woods will be teeing it up with an array of clubs from different manufacturers in his bag, as this will be his first event since Nike announced they were pulling out of the golf equipment industry.
