‘Can’t believe it’: Golf world erupts over Tiger Woods announcement

Tiger Woods has stunned the golf world after announcing he will return to competition next week.

Just 10 months after his right leg was badly damaged in a car crash, Woods will compete alongside his 12-year-old son Charlie in the PNC Championship.



It will be his first competition, even in a tournament Woods described last week as the “hit-and-giggle” variety that he can play, since he and his son tied for seventh a year ago in the unofficial event that pairs family members.

“Although it’s been a long and challenging year, I am very excited to close it out by competing in the PNC Championship with my son Charlie,” Woods tweeted on Wednesday.




“I’m playing as a Dad and couldn’t be more excited and proud.”

The tournament said it was holding a spot for Woods, and he fuelled speculation he might play the December 18-19 event at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club in Orlando when he took full swings with driver on Saturday and Sunday during the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.




“We have been liaising with Tiger and his team for some time and are delighted that he has now decided to make his return to competitive golf at the PNC Championship,” said Alastair Johnston of IMG, the executive chairman of the event.
