Tiger Woods is undoubtedly the most fantastic golfer the world has witnessed. Fans are always eager to see his mind-boggling shots in the hole.
Woods was on hiatus following a devastating car accident last year that forced him to stay away from the game, but not anymore. Tiger Woods is finally returning next month to play in a television golf event called The Match.
The series is scheduled to take place on December 10 at Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Florida.
Tiger Woods will team up with current World No. 1 golfer Rory McIlroy to play against Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. While McIlroy, Spieth, and Thomas are debuting in The Match, Tiger Woods is set to play his third season.
Woods joined hands with The Match during its inaugural season in 2018 and then returned for the next season to register his first win in a team match against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. However, Woods has missed a few seasons and is finally returning.
It is important to note that The Match will be back for its seventh season, with the 12-hole tournament starting at 7 pm on December 10. The four-hour event will be televised on Turner Sports.
