Tiger Woods will close out his most recent return to competition on Sunday in paradise.
In his first competitive appearance since the Masters earlier this spring, the 15-time major champion enters the final round of the 2023 Hero World Challenge, an unofficial event that benefits his TGR Foundation, T-16 at even par in the 20-player field.
Woods was admittedly rusty in Thursday’s opening round at Albany in the Bahamas as he signed for an up-and-down 3-over 75 but got back under par both Friday (70) and Saturday (71).

For years Tiger has been adamant that no matter the procedure, he can still hit every shot necessary to compete in tournaments. The only issue was whether or not he could walk 72 holes and stay fit to swing.
Albany is a flat resort course that doesn’t make for a difficult walk and it’s so far, so good for the soon-to-be 48-year-old. I’ll be curious to see how he’s walking on the back nine. Another round under par would do wonders for his momentum heading into 2024 (where he ideally wants to play once a month) but anything near par is a positive.

Here. We. Go. (Joker voice).
Quick tee pick up as this one is launched down the fairway. He’s been swinging that driver so well all week long and he’s in the short stuff to start his day.
