Tiger Woods Makes Comeback Official, Commits to Safeway Open

Tiger Woods made it official. The 14-time major champion has committed to teeing it up at next week’s Safeway Open.

It will be Tiger’s first PGA Tour event in over a year. The Wyndham Championship in August of 2015 was his last tour round, while the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational was Tiger’s last tour win.

On his website last month, the 40 year-old Woods announced that he was hoping for a return at the Napa-based event, but he had yet to make it official.

“My rehabilitation is to the point where I’m comfortable making plans, but I still have work to do,” Woods said last month. “Whether I can play depends on my continued progress and recovery. My hope is to have my game ready to go. … It could be a fun fall.”

The Safeway Open will be broadcast on the Golf Channel all four days.
