Tiger Woods has been spotted practicing his swing at Pebble Beach, as he prepares for a potential comeback to competitive golf after spending half a year on the sidelines following ankle surgery in April. The 47-year-old golf legend was captured on camera hitting balls, causing a frenzy among golf fans.
Woods has been struggling with leg injuries since being involved in a serious car wreck in 2021. He sustained multiple leg injuries and underwent surgery for life-threatening injuries. Since then, he has faced challenges and developed arthritis, making it difficult for him to walk around PGA-sponsored courses.
Despite his setbacks, Woods seems determined to return to the game. He was last seen playing at The Masters in Augusta, Georgia in April, and since then, he has been focused on his recovery and rehabilitation. In September, he was seen practicing on a range, juggling golf balls and hitting chip shots alongside Rickie Fowler and Will Zalatoris.
The recent footage of Woods hitting a wedge shot to a par-3 hole at Pebble Beach has sparked excitement among golf enthusiasts. In the video, Woods is wearing a patterned hat and shirt with grey pants and shades, showcasing his signature style.
Woods’ highly-anticipated return to competitive golf is expected to take place in December at the PNC Championship. He hopes to play in the tournament alongside his teenage son, Charlie, who has been making a name for himself in the golfing world.
In addition to his comeback, Woods recently announced a new golf league called TGL (The Golf League), created by him and fellow golfer Rory McIlroy. The league aims to fuse technology and live action in a two-hour match format and features 18 PGA Tour players split into six teams. The U.S. broadcast rights for TGL have been secured by Walt Disney’s ESPN, with the inaugural match set to air on January 9.
Despite his focus on his golfing career, Woods has also been in the spotlight for his potential role as the next captain of the U.S. team at the Ryder’s Cup. Davis Love III, a former Ryder Cup captain, suggested that Woods could be next in line to lead the Americans. However, this year, Woods was not able to participate in the tournament due to his ongoing recovery.
As Woods continues his journey back into the world of competitive golf, fans eagerly await his return to the course. His determination, resilience, and passion for the game serve as an inspiration to golf enthusiasts around the world.
