Next week’s Genesis Invitational on the PGA Tour will mark Tiger Woods’ first competition in seven months.
The only competitive tournament the 15-time major champion participated in 2022 was the Open Championship at St. Andrews in July, where he failed to make the cut.
Woods, 47, was in a car accident in February 2021 and sustained serious leg injuries.
Before the Los Angeles tournament, he tweeted, “I’m ready to play a legitimate PGA Tour event next week.”
The golfer will make his first non-major PGA Tour debut since the Zozo Championship in 2020 at the Genesis Invitational, which he will host from 16 to 19 February at Riviera Country Club.
Only nine rounds of competitive golf were allowed for the American in 2022.
He pulled out of the US PGA Championship after the third round, missed the cut at The Open, and finished 47th at the Masters.
Woods describes 2022 as “difficult but rewarding.”
Alongside his son Charlie, he participated in The Match, an exhibition competition, and the PNC Championship in December.
In addition to the injuries he sustained in the automobile accident two years ago, Woods has fought with plantar fasciitis, which causes pain at the base of the foot.
