When we last saw Tiger Woods he was actually completing his fourth round of golf and—instead of finding him under the weather—we actually found him 8-strokes under par.
Of course, it was ten strokes off leader Hero World Challenge winner Rickie Fowler.
Still, it had us all chomping at the bit to see Tiger again.
And now we know when that will be after Tiger announced yesterday that he will make his 2018 debut at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines on the 25th of this month—his first official PGA Tour event since he missed the cut at the same tournament a year ago.
And there’s reason to believe the 42-year-old Woods may again be among the leaders given he has won the event seven times in his career—even as recently as 2013.
Oh yeah and the last time he won a major—his 14th—was back in 2008 when the U.S. Open was played on the same course.
Woods also announced that he will be playing the Genesis Open at Riviera in Pacific Palisades, California, which also has some significance to Tiger. It’s where he made his PGA Tour debut as a 16-year-old amateur in 1992.
Four back surgeries later, Tiger is going back to the beginning and I think we would all love to see him play golf like he was a kid again.
