Tiger Woods, after being away from the sport for nine months, is finally set to return for the Hero World Challenge.
The best-ball match was played for a "small wager", writes Faxon, who with Trump played up to the blue tees at about 6,500 yards, while Woods and Johnson played from the back tees at 7,600 yards. This is as good of a field as this tournament has ever had with eight of the top 10 players in the world in attendance (only Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy are not there).
"The fact that I don't have any pain in my lower back compared to what I was living with for years, it's just remarkable", Woods told Golf Channel. He looks healthy and that's all I care about. "I've been playing tournament golf for 37 years, so I've hit a lot of golf balls".
NASSAU, Bahamas - Tiger Woods' first competitive round in almost 10 full months will take place Thursday, alongside a friendly playing partner yet unfamiliar opponent. I've progressed over a few days, hitting driver a little hard and harder and harder until it was comfortable enough to hit it full.
Officer-involved shooting in Arlington mall
A robbery suspect was shot by a police officer at a Texas mall this weekend after police say he pointed a fake gun at them. Cook said the police are working with the District Attorney's office to file the appropriate charges against Dodd.
Among them: Defending champion Hideki Matsuyama is paired with Francesco Molinari (11:10 a.m. ET); Dustin Johnson will play with Brooks Koepka (12:16 p.m. ET); Rickie Fowler with Kevin Kisner (12:27 p.m. ET); and in a rematch of the Open Championship final round, Jordan Spieth will play alongside Matt Kuchar (12:38 p.m. ET).
"I haven't really competed in nearly two years, really", Woods said. "The ball flight, the sound off the club, all of it was right there".
Not only did Faxon praise the long hitting and power for Woods, but spoke highly of his short game. Rickie Fowler said the 79-time PGA Tour victor has been hitting it "way by" him at Medalist Golf Club, where they are both members, while the former world No. 1 Jason Day said Woods is "the best he's ever felt in three years". "That takes time and the last thing I want to do is have any setbacks". And it's been a struggle for years. But Faxon did throw out a word of caution after playing with Woods. I am stiffer, I'm fused.
"I haven't really competed in two years, really".
