Tiger Woods is officially back. Sure, it remains to be seen if he'll be back to the Tiger who once dominated the PGA Tour, but he is back to playing competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge today in the Bahamas.
Even Tiger isn't sure what to expect.
“I'm winging this here because I don't know what my body can and can't do yet,” Woods said, H/T SBNation. “I don't know where I'm at. What I mean by that is I don't know how hard I can hit it, what shots can I play.”
He hasn't played since withdrawing from the 2017 Dubai Desert Classic back in February, but his patented fist pump has not missed a beat.
The 18-man field at the Hero World Challenge also includes several of golf's most popular players, including Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler. As of this writing, Tiger is sitting in the middle of the pack, one under par, after completing nine holes in the first round.
