Tiger Woods' 2017 Schedule Taking Shape


Woods, sidelined by back pain for the past 15 months, will launch his official comeback at the January 26-29 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in southern California, the PGA Tour event announced on Wednesday.

Woods' last tournament came in August of 2015 at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina, where he finished tied for 10th place.

He also captured the 2008 U.S. Open there on one of his favourite layouts.

The tournament is hosted by the Woods Foundation and it was also the first PGA tournament he played in as a 16-year-old.

Woods also recounted how Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan was used by the US Ryder Cup team to give him a boost during his lay-off when he served as assistant captain a year ago. The 14-time major champ has talked about needing work (and reps) to knock the proverbial rust of his game - as have his peers - and Woods is diving into 2017 headlong with tournaments in two different countries and three time zones.

Tiger Woods is optimistic of a successful 2017 after a return to golf and playing with USA president-elect Donald Trump.

Republicans in Congress have said they intend to hold hearings into election hacking by the Russian intelligence services. On Sunday his communications director, Sean Spicer , said the president-elect had no intention of stopping tweeting .

Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, had said the 41-year-old "wants to get in one overseas event".

Woods and President-elect Donald Trump met up for a friendly round at Trump International near Wood's home in Jupiter, FL. "It was a life-changing moment for me".

Woods said every player was wearing a jacket, "unzipped the front, and the T-shirt read, 'MAKE TIGER GREAT AGAIN, '".

Woods has been a regular in the event since making his debut in the desert in 2001, winning in 2006 and 2008 while he is also a remarkable 92-under par for his 28 rounds over the famous Majlis course.

"I would like in my heart of hearts to play a full schedule next year", Woods said.

"I thought what I did at the Hero World Challenge was a positive step", he writes. Now ranked 652 in the world, the former world number one is already proving a popular bet to win the first Major of the year - the Masters Tournament at Augusta in April.
