This week Tiger Woods and 19 other golfers will tee it up in the Bahamas for the Hero World Challenge. In addition to Tiger Woods being in the field, Scottie Scheffler, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, and many more top-20 ranked players in the world will also play. There are starting to be some bread crumbs that Tiger is gearing up for 2024. The days of Tiger playing in multiple events in a months are long gone. But reports are out that Tiger is planning on playing in “five or six” events this season. It appears that Tiger is gearing up for 2024, and it will give us a look into the rest of his career. Should it go well, I could see Tiger continuing this schedule for however long he believes he can compete. Should the body not respond the way he wants, it could be over.
This weekend at the Bahamas won’t be the only time to watch Tiger before the end of the season. Tiger and his son, Charlie are both confirmed for the PNC Championship at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando for mid-December. Those are 2 events on flat golf courses that are relatively easy to walk. However, walking doesn’t seem to be as big of a problem for Tiger currently. Taylor Zarzour went on SiriusXM and is reporting that Tiger’s limp is not nearly as noticeable and it’s not as much of a problem for Tiger. So five or six events in 2024… what will they be? There is no way to really know, but here is my bet guess.
