Watch I Tiger Woods' multiple injuries interrupted a golf career for the ages.
Tiger Woods is officially getting back onto the golf course. After a fifteen-month absence from the sport, Woods will be participating in the Hero World Championship hosted by the Albany Golf Club & Beach Resort, according to USA Today.
According to an article on ESPN, Woods has a long laundry list of significant injuries that have kept him out of competitive action, including a torn ACL, a torn Achilles tendon, and at least three back surgeries.
Tiger's dominance in professional golf has been well-documented. His fourteen professional golf major championships trail only Jack Nicklaus' eighteen for the most all-time.
However, the injuries have certainly taken a toll on Woods' health, considering he hasn't won a golf major since the U.S. Open in 2008. His lengthy absences, coupled with poor performances, have caused his world ranking to take at significant blow. The former world No. 1 ranked golfer has fallen to No. 898 overall.
Even Las Vegas oddsmakers list Woods as the heaviest of underdogs for the Hero World Championship, coming in at 40/1 odds to win the tournament, according to GolfOdds.com
Regardless of the outcome in his first competitive golf tournament in over a year, the re-emergence of the once dominant, then dormant, golf champion hints that perhaps there may be something left in Tiger's tank after-all, and perhaps we might all be witness to his his greatness once more.
