Tiger Woods cops to nerves before return at Hero World Challenge
It’s for real this time, and that has Tiger Woods a little nervous.
Woods isn’t pushing a false start this time, planning to go through with his return to competitive golf this week at his Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. Woods owns a home at the host club, Albany, and his newly announced TGR companies run and benefit from the event. And, unlike the Safeway Open, which he backed out of playing as his comeback start just days beforehand in Napa, Calif., Woods is a superstar in a very small field of superstars — Woods is one of only 18 players in the field. There’s no cut, either, meaning Woods has no excuse not to finish out the tournament, at least as far as the rules go.
