  • Tiger Woods announces he will return to golf at Hero World Challenge

In April, he underwent a fourth back surgery.

Woods has not played since he withdrew from the Dubai Desert Classic on February 3 because of back spasms.

Tiger Woods will make his competitive return to golf after nine months out with injury at the Hero World Challenge from 30 November to 3 December.

The recovery must have gone well, as Woods announced that he will make his return to competitive golf in late November at his own charity's event - 2017 Hero World Challenge on Nov. 30.

The 18-player field will be a good benchmark for Woods to measure his progress, as other golfers scheduled to play include six of the top eight golfers in the current world rankings: Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Thomas, Jason Day, and Rickie Fowler.

Chelsea's Kante can return against Roma, says Conte
Along with Manolas, Roma will also be missing defenders Rick Karsdorp and Nura Abdullahi who are also sidelined with injuries. Also, AS Roma victory over Chelsea will guarantee the Italian club at least a third spot finish in the group.


Wood has confirmed he will play the 2017 Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas next month.

"Albany is the ideal setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field", Woods said on his website.

In a statement released Monday, Woods said he thanked "fans for their unwavering support" during his injury.

This comes after Woods was in court last week in West Palm Beach on DUI charges from May. Just a guess, but it probably wasn't a tough decision to add the 14-time major champ to the event.

"I'd like to thank the committee of 1 for picking myself and Daniel Berger to play in this years", Woods tweeted.
