Tiger Woods to play in first tournament since car crash
Tiger Woods will make his return to competitive golf 10 months after sustaining serious leg injuries in a car crash, he announced in a tweet on Tuesday.
The big picture: Woods, who was hospitalized in February after a rollover car crash in Los Angeles County, will play in next week's PNC Championship.
- The 15-time major winner floated a potential return to golf in November but admitted that he would never play full time on the PGA Tour again.
Details: Woods will enter the tournament with his son, Charlie. The 36-hole event, scheduled for Dec. 18 and 19, features professional golfers competing with a family member.
What they're saying: "I’m playing as a Dad and couldn’t be more excited and proud," Woods said in his tweet on Tuesday.
- “We have been liaising with Tiger and his team for some time and are delighted that he has now decided to make his return to competitive golf at the PNC Championship,” Alastair Johnston, the executive chairman of the event, said in a statement.
