Yesterday, what the golf world was desperately dreaming about finally came true. After months of hiatus and keeping his fans waiting impatiently, Tiger Woods finally announced his comeback. He will officially be picking his clubs for the Hero World Challenge, which he is hosting as well. The news of his comeback has spread like wildfire throughout, and the two other golfers he is bringing with him to the event are Justin Rose and Lucas Glover.

In the days leading up to the massive announcement, Woods was seen walking without a limp, which was a huge positive sign of his recovery. The extreme pain that forced him to pull out of this year’s Masters seems to have been eradicated, and even Woods himself hinted at going back to the greens. And now he is!

With his much-anticipated comeback, so many things could change in the golf world. Woods literally holds the potential to improve business deals and the economy of the American golf world, considering his appearance on the course could possibly draw out even more fans. And things for Woods on the professional front will also change, especially his recent big slump with his OWGR ranking.

The 15-time major winner once ruled the ranking charts and even spent 683 consecutive weeks as world no. 1. But his long inactivity period took a toll on his ranks, and they fell drastically. In February 2023, Woods fell down to No. 1294. Then, a few days ago, in November, his ranking tanked to his ‘lowest’ ever: 1307. But now it is anticipated that his ranking could see a huge rise. If he wins the event, Woods could see his rank jump 1150 places, up to around 160–170.

Needless to say, while a win from the golf legend is improbable, his playing well and grabbing a place on the leaderboard on Sunday would also mean his ranking increases and he is no longer at his lowest. This could be a big game changer for the golf pro who decided to step up when ditched by other PGA Tour players for the event.

The Hero World Challenge will be held in Albany, Bahamas, from November 30 to December 3, where 20 golfers will be competing. Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele were supposed to play, but they decided to withdraw from the Bahamas event. As a result, Woods finally decided to step in and announced the news through his TGR Live social media profile. “Tournament host @TigerWoods to play in the 2023 #HeroWorldChallenge,”

There is no doubt that the Hero Challenge is going to be a much-sought-after and must-watch event. All eyes will be on him and him alone. And if he gains a win, then it definitely will do wonders for his OWGR rankings.
