Tiger Woods finally announces his comeback

Tiger has said he hopes to return in the next five weeks.

Tiger Woods has given a measured statement about his plans to return. The former number one, who hasn’t played competitively in over a year, hopes to return in time for the Safeway Open (formerly the Frys.com Open), Oct. 13-16. Woods also intends to compete in the Turkish Airlines Open, Nov. 3-6, and the Tiger Woods Foundation-run Hero World Challenge, Dec. 1-4, at Albany in the Bahamas. He will participate in the Tiger Woods Invitational presented by USLI, Oct. 10-11, on the Monterey Peninsula, according to his website.


“My rehabilitation is to the point where I’m comfortable making plans, but I still have work to do.” “Whether I can play depends on my continued progress and recovery. My hope is to have my game ready to go.”



“It was difficult missing tournaments that are important to me, but this time I was smart about my recovery and didn’t rush it.” “It was great spending time with my children Sam and Charlie, and also working on a lot of projects including golf-course design, the upcoming 20th anniversary of my foundation and my book about the 1997 Masters. But I missed competing. I want to thank all the fans for their kindness and concern. I’ve been a pro about 20 years, and their support has neverwaned.”

77% of CLICKON’s audience said they were excited by the prospect of a Tiger Woods return. I for one think it could provide golf with a brief, but phenomenal boost. Bring it!
