Tournament host and 5-time champion Tiger Woods bobbed and weaved to a 4-over-par 36-40=76 in the final round of the 18th Hero World Challenge to post 4-under 284, down five places to solo 15th (of 17 players), 14 in arrears to champion Hideki Matsuyama.
The 40-year-old, who celebrates his birthday Dec. 30th, began the final frame in solo 10th on 8-under after opening his 15th appearance in 73, bogey-free 65, and 70. He circled five birdies, including three straight on Nos. 7-9 and back-to-backs on 14 and 15, but outbalanced them with three bogeys and three doubles, eventually carding the worst round of the day. For the week, the 79-time TOUR winner carded a field-best 24 birdies, but gave 20 of those back with eight bogeys and a field-worst six doubles. This was Woods' first competitive action in 466 days and while an unofficial TOUR event, the World No. 898 does collect 4.38 world-ranking points and jumps 248 places to No. 650. Dec 4 - 5:08 PM

Tiger Woods looked to be in full form today, styling a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 during round two of the Hero World Challenge, raising seven spots up to T10 on the live leaderboard with play still in progress.

Woods looked good in his opening round, but a double-par-double finish ruined the sparkle of the round. That placed him in 17th place (of 18) after day one. With Justin Rose withdrawing before the round, Woods went out solo today and completed his round in just under three hours. He found 15 greens in regulation, but he really kept the momentum rolling with key par-savers throughout the round, making good use of the Scotty Cameron that is back in his bag. At 898th in the Official World Golf Rankings, the 40-year-old will be skyrocketing up the rankings if this round is any indication of the Woods we will see in 2017. This blemish-free navigation of Albany will have his stock symbol pointing upwards regardless of how he finishes out the week.
Dec 2 - 2:32 PM

Tiger Woods is set to return from a 15-month recess as he readies for this week's Hero World Challenge.

While the drama of his returns always draw a lot of eyeballs, the stakes are rather low this week as he's guaranteed a six-figure paycheck in this 18-man, no-cut, unofficial event played at a resort in which he owns property. The 79-time PGA TOUR winner is returning to competitive golf for the first time since his microdiscectomy which took place in September of 2015. Instead of rushing back from injury like years past, Woods was determined to get back to 100% physically this time around, taking 466 days off since his last tournament action (T10, 2015 Wyndham Championship). With just four top 25s since the start of 2014 (18 starts), his stock has nowhere to go but up. Gamers should remain cautiously optimistic as they watch the return very closely this week.

The return of Tiger Woods to competitive golf will be put on the shelf a bit longer as he pulled his name from the field at this week's Safeway Open.

Woods is still listed in the field for now but Tim Rosaforte of Golf Channel has reported the intentions of Woods' impending WD. The 79-time PGA TOUR winner has still not pegged it up in competition since the 2015 Wyndham Championship and doesn't feel ready to compete. Given his recent commitment to this event, it appears he is close but not quite there. The initial statement from TigerWoods.com said he hoped to play the Safeway Open, leaving open the possibility that he wouldn't be ready come tournament time. UPDATE: Woods released a statement on his website that included the following, "After a lot of soul searching and honest reflection, I know that I am not yet ready to play on the PGA TOUR or compete in Turkey. My health is good, and I feel strong, but my game is vulnerable and not where it needs to be."
Oct 10 - 2:20 PM

Tiger Woods announced his hopeful return to competitive golf, citing the Safeway Open as his first scheduled event this fall.

Woods alerted his fans via Twitter and his personal website by saying, "Hoping to play in Napa, Turkey, and Hero in the Bahamas. Can't wait to compete again." That would pinpoint his return to October 13rd at the Safeway Open. He's previously played the event once, a T30 back in 2011, played at CordeValle GC that season. The 40-year-old was last seen on the PGA TOUR at the 2015 Wyndham Championship before undergoing surgery. Instead of rushing himself back like in years past, Woods has taken the entire 2015-16 season off to rehab and get back to playing shape. While he hasn't won on TOUR since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone, he's only teed it up in 24 events since then. Gamers should look to target Woods immediately but also be aware of the potential rust factor.
Sep 7 - 11:35 AM

Tiger Woods withdrew his name from next week's PGA Championship field, and will continue to rehab in hopes of returning during the 2016-17 season.

Rumors have been swirling all year about when Woods will return from injury, but it now appears it's no time soon. His agent, Mark Steinberg, reported to GolfChannel.com a bit more on his status by saying, "Continuing to make progress, but simply not ready for PGA. Will not play in the '15/'16 season and will continue to rehab and work hard to then assess when he starts play for the '16/'17 season." On the bright side, he says "when" he starts to play in 2016-17 and not "if". The 79-time PGA TOUR winner was last seen in competitive action posting a T10 at the 2015 Wyndham Championship in a last-ditch effort to make the 2015 FedExCup Playoffs.
Jul 19 - 5:46 PM

Tiger Woods has removed himself from the published field at next week's Masters Tournament.

Woods made the announcement via his Twitter feed (link below) and TigerWoods.com. He revealed back on September 18, 2015 that he had undergone a microdiscectomy, the same surgery he had on March 31, 2014 and a week later would miss the Masters for the first time in 20 years. The 40-year-old, down to No. 472 in the Official World Golf Ranking, stated that he is training daily, but that playing Augusta next week wouldn't be the right decision. His last action on TOUR was a T10 at the Wyndham Championship in August of 2015.
Apr 1 - 8:41 PM

In his presser for this week's Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods conveyed essentially that nothing has changed since having a follow-up procedure in late October to his microdiscectomy in mid-September.

The Tiger Woods Foundation hosts and benefits from the 18-man tournament at Albany in The Bahamas. The 14-time major champion announced on Oct. 30 that he wouldn't compete due to his ongoing health woes. He has no timetable for a return to competition. "That's the hardest part for me," he said. "There's really nothing I can look forward to, nothing I can build towards. It's literally just day by day and week by week and time by time. Where is the light at the end of the tunnel? I don't know." At this point, Woods' only positive fantasy value seems to sit in salary formats for 2016-17, but even that is a hopeful projection.

In the latest announcement at TigerWoods.com, Woods revealed today that he had a follow-up procedure to his second microdiscectomy in mid-September.

The site stated that this time spent under the knife in Utah was intended to "relieve discomfort." His return to competition remains undetermined. "It's one of those things that had to be done," said Woods. "I have an outstanding team of doctors, and I'll be back as soon as I can." His next public appearance is scheduled to be the Hero World Challenge on Dec. 3-6. Its benefiting charity is the Tiger Woods Foundation. The 14-time major champion will turn 40 years of age two months from today. Unless you have a keeper provision, he doesn't deserve to occupy a spot on any long-range fantasy roster.

Tiger Woods announced on his website today that he underwent a microdiscectomy on Wednesday in Utah.

This is the same surgery that the 14-time major champion had on March 31, 2014. "With the upcoming offseason, the decision was made to remove a small disc fragment that was pinching his nerve," said Dr. Charles Rich, the same surgeon who performed the first procedure. "The microsurgery was a complete success, and he was discharged Thursday night." Woods had experienced some soreness in recent weeks and opted to take care of it now. His original schedule included a start at next month's Frys.com Open, but he'll instead be out until at least 2016. "This is certainly disappointing, but I'm a fighter," Woods said. "I've been told I can make a full recovery, and I have no doubt that I will. ... I appreciate the fans' concern and support. This is unfortunate, but these things happen. I've been injured before and played again. It won't be any different this time." While he'll always be a Life Member of the PGA TOUR, he's fully exempt through 2017-18.

Tiger Woods backed up to an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to wrap at 13-under 267, good for four-way tie for 10th place.

Woods began the day in a three-way tie for second at 13-under, one back of 54-hole leader Jason Gore. Playing in his Wyndham debut and in the penultimate pairing with Scott Brown, Woods was in position for his 80th PGA TOUR title, continuing his chase of Sam Snead's all-time win total of 82, at the tournament where Snead won his last title 50 years ago. It wasn't to be for the 14-time major champion, as he canceled five birdies with two bogeys and a disastrous, triple bogey-7 at the par-4 11th. To his credit, Woods carded four of his birdies over his last six holes, including three consecutive at Nos. 13-15. The 39-year-old netted 20 birdies and one eagle on the week against six bogeys and the aforementioned triple. It's his first top 10 of the season (11 starts) and he concluded the regular season at 178th in the FedExCup standings. He needed a win this week make the Playoffs.

Overnight co-leader Tiger Woods stalled out mid-round but managed to post a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's third round of the Wyndham Championship for a three-day total of 13-under 197.

Woods began the day 11-under and shared a one-stroke lead with playing partner Tom Hoge. After playing his first 17 holes bogey-free, and 28 straight without a blemish, Woods squared bogey at the last, three-putting from 40'1". The dropped shot means he'll enter the final round two back of Jason Gore, who shot 62 today, and also dropped him into the penultimate pairing for Sunday. Despite the disappointing finish, Woods made several key par putts on his round, including a 24-footer at the 10th and four more between four and six feet on his inward half. The par putt at the last was from 5'11", which rimmed out on the right. The 39-year-old managed three circles on the card at Nos. 1 and 5, and not again until the par-3 16th. Thru three rounds, he's a cumulative 5.818 in strokes gained: putting (ranked eighth) but a paltry 0.197 on today's loop, just his third career at Sedgefield CC. The 79-time TOUR winner split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation.

Tiger Woods backed up his opening 64 at the Wyndham Championship with a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in today's second round to post 11-under 129 at the break, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Tom Hoge.

The day started poorly for Woods, who three-putted the par-4 first hole from just inside 24 feet, but he battled back as he's done so many times before. Overall, he split eight (of 14) fairways and stood over 15 opportunities to break par, doing so six times, including an eagle from 10'5" at the par-5 15th hole. His longest conversion dropped for birdie from 25'7" at the par-4 13th. When he signed his card, Woods co-led the field with 12 birdies, but ranked just T28 in greens in regulation (29). That's the kind of ratio that wins shootouts.

Tiger Woods authored a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

Sharp stuff in his debut at Sedgefield Country Club, but imagine what he would have done to the place in his prime. Nevertheless, he's only two strokes off the clubhouse lead after what was his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since a second-round 61 at the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Woods hit 14 greens in regulation on the day for which he set the tone with a hole-out for birdie from off the green 18 yards away at the par-4 10th. He bogeyed the par-4 11th, but responded with six more birdies, including a pair from 10-12 feet. He even salvaged par twice from the same range. At last check, he ranked third in the field in strokes gained: putting with a clip of 2.662. It would have been even higher if not for a whiff for birdie from inside five feet at the par-4 sixth.

Tiger Woods will lace it up for this week's Wyndham Championship.

This was news on Friday night, of course, but we always wait until the published field reflects additions and subtractions. Indeed, Woods was added this morning, but his agent, Mark Steinberg, confirmed to Golf Channel that his client will honor the verbal commitment. Woods is in as a late entry since he wasn't included in the published field, which reflects who were in at the commitment deadline (5:00 p.m. ET on Friday). This will mark the 14-time major champion's debut at Sedgefield Country Club.
