Big news from the Hero World Challenge! The opening round of this year’s tournament can now be deemed more successful than the previous years. And, it owes much of its success to none other than the legendary Tiger Woods! Moreover, with the PGA Tour pro making his comeback in the tournament, many were in hopes of catching the same on their TV.

The golfing world saw itself on the edge of its seats in the Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas owing to the unofficial event of the men’s circuit. What’s more, this anticipation led them to tune into the Woods-hosted competition, leading it to record the highest viewership in the last 6 years, much to the surprise of many!

What’s more, this anticipation led them to tune into the Woods-hosted competition, leading it to record the highest viewership in the last 6 years, much to the surprise of many!
This sudden increase can be, without a doubt, attributed to the Hall of Famer making a comeback to the sport. His return has now made it the ” best opening round for the event since 2017.” Although Mr. T’s revival in the game was not as glorious as it was intended to be by the pro, he did play a big role, if not the biggest, in bringing in a lot more people to watch the game, thereby making it more successful than its predecessors in the last six years.
However, during the record-breaking first day, the 15X major winner, in an interview, revealed how he felt he was “rusty” throughout the entire round. The tough conditions did not help since he couldn’t commit as well as the professional hoped for while confessing the soreness of his body, despite walking without any signs of limping before the event. Nevertheless, the distance that the athlete hit, 326 yards during the par-4 first hole, was more than enough to prove the “upper body power”  that he was able to make use of.
The 82X PGA Tour champ was able to fare better in the second round, scoring 70 (-2), pushing to the 15th place. One can hope he pulls off an even better performance on the greens in the coming days to showcase to the viewers a scintillating finish!
