Tiger Woods commits to return at Safeway Open
Tiger Woods will return to the PGA Tour next week.
The 14-time Major champion met a deadline and officially committed to play in the Safeway Open, staged at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, California.
Woods hasn’t teed it up in anger since a top 10 finish at the Wyndham Championship in August 2015.
But following a drawn out rehabilitation from microdiscectomy surgery, the 40-year-old is now only days away from getting back into action.
He has 79 PGA Tour titles, three short of tying Sam Snead’s all-time record of 82 and, last week, was a vice-captain on the USA’s Ryder Cup-winning team.
