Tiger Woods' much-anticipated return to golf (again) will happen sooner than you think.
Like, this Thursday (November 30).
Woods will tee it off in the World Hero Challenge Thursday afternoon at 12:05 p.m. from the Bahamas, playing alongside Justin Thomas. It's a tournament Woods also has hosted for years.
The tournament routinely boasts the 18 best players in the world and aside from a few slight changes this year is no different, as Jordan Spieth and others will be in the field.
Woods, who has battled for over a year after having yet another surgery (has has had his neck and knee worked on in recent years) was cleared by doctors for full golf activities about a month ago. Leading up to that, Woods had been posting videos hitting golf balls on social media, like this one:

Woods, apparently, has a swing good enough to win – says former Woods coach Hank Haney. Other golfers were equally as complimentary, marveling at the length Woods has retrieved to his golf game from previous success.
More Tiger: Was routinely blowing it past Reed off the tee. On their last hole he got Reed by about 50 yards.— Brian Wacker (@brianwacker1) November 27, 2017
Woods has not won a major since 2008, though he has won several tournaments since then, most recently at the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational. In all, Woods has 14 major championship wins, second all-time behind Jack Nicklaus. He is set to turn 41 next month, leaving his window to reasonably challenge at another major slim (Nicklaus was the oldest Major winner at 46-years-old in 1986).
