Tiger Woods (48, USA), the “Emperor of Golf”, will compete in the PGA tour next week through the Genesis Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars) in seven months. The Genesis Invitational is a tournament hosted by Woods.
Woods posted a post on his Twitter on the 11th (Korean time) and said, “I am ready to participate in the PGA Tour next week.” At the same time, he attached the Genesis Invitational Twitter account.
It is the first time Woods has participated in a PGA Tour event in seven months since the Open Championship held in July last year. It’s been 2 months since the PNC Championship, where families compete together, including event competitions. In a PGA Tour event that is not a major tournament, he will participate in about two years and four months after the Jojo Championship in October 2020. 토토사이트
After hosting the Genesis Invitational as a host in February 2021, Woods got into a major car accident and severely injured his leg. Woods, who devoted himself to treatment for a long time, has only competed in some competitions since his recovery. After going out with his son Charlie in the PNC Championship in December of the same year, last year he only competed in three major tournaments: the Masters in April, the PGA Championship in May, and the Open in July. He performed poorly, finishing 47th in the Masters, withdrawing after three rounds in the PGA Championship, and being cut off in the Open.
At the end of last year, Woods said, “In 2023, my goal is to participate in one or two more tournaments besides major tournaments,” and the Genesis Invitational became the first tournament this year. Although Woods’ swing speed has recovered to some extent after the car accident, attention has been paid to how Woods will perform in this tournament as he has shown difficulty in walking the course.
The Genesis Invitational will be held at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, USA from the 16th.
