Tiger Woods will host and compete in the upcoming 2023 Hero World Challenge, he announced Saturday. It will be his first competition since undergoing ankle surgery in the spring. The 47-year-old will join 19 other players in the pursuit of a $3.5 million purse. It's an elite field, including eight of the world's top 10.
Woods, who has 82 tour wins, unveiled the charity tournament in 1999. It has been held annually since then, and will take place at Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3. It's part of the PGA Tour schedule, but it's an unofficial event. This is the competition's eighth time on the islands. In addition to offering philanthropic support for the TGR Foundation and Tavistock Foundation, funds will also go toward the Bahamas Youth Foundation.
