Tiger Woods has announced his return to competitive golf.
Following nine months out of competitive golf, Tiger Woods announced he will return during the Hero World Challenge, the event hosted by his foundation.
The tournament takes place Nov. 30-Dec. 3 in Albany, Bahamas. Woods is a 5-time winner of the event.
“I am excited to return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge,” Woods said in a statement. “Albany is the perfect setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field.”
Woods has not played competitively since he was forced to withdraw from the Dubai Desert Classic on Feb. 3 due to back spasms.
Just last week, Woods entered a guilty plea to reckless driving during Palm Beach County, Fla. hearing. Tiger was arrested this May when officers discovered him unconscious in his vehicle. A toxicology report later revealed he had marijuana and prescription drugs in his system.
