‘Golf Emperor’ Tiger Woods (48) is on the field after 7 months.
On the 11th (Korean time), Woods posted a short message on his Twitter saying, “I am ready to ‘actually’ participate in the PGA Tour next week.” Here, he added the Twitter account of the Genesis Invitational tournament he will participate in.
It is the first time in seven months since the Open, a major tournament in July of last year, that Woods participated in an official tour event rather than an event tournament. Excluding major tournaments, October 2020 was the last time to participate in the Jojo Championship. Golf fans can only welcome the news of his return. 카지노사이트
Woods suffered a severe leg injury in a car accident in February 2021 and devoted himself to rehabilitation for a considerable period of time, but he was unable to participate in the competition, which made many fans regretful. He participated in three major tournaments, including the Masters in April of last year, the PGA Championship in May, and the Open in July, but suffered from recurring leg pain.
In early December of last year, he was scheduled to participate in the Hero World Challenge hosted by his foundation, but withdrew the plan due to pain in the sole of his right foot.
As Woods declared his first tournament appearance of the year, expectations for his participation in the Masters, the first major tournament of the season in April, also increased.
The Genesis Invitational, which will be Woods’ comeback stage, will be held at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, USA from the 16th. This tournament is one of the ‘special events’ designated by the PGA Tour.
