Home

Tiger Woods has confirmed that he’ll play in this year’s highly-lucrative, limited-field Chevron World Challenge.

World number one Tiger Woods has confirmed he will play in this year’s highly-lucrative, limited-field Chevron World Challenge in December.

Woods, a four-time winner and former host of the event which is again being played at Sherwood Country Club in California, said he was thrilled to be ending a three-year absence from the event.

“It’s always fun to come home and play in front of the Southern California fans,” Woods said on his website.

“The Chevron World Challenge is a great event, and there is always a fantastic international field. I’m really looking forward to competing.”

The prize purse for the tournament, which is not an official PGA Tour event, is US$5 million, with the winner to net $US1.2million.

Woods’ end-of-year schedule also sees him playing the Ryder Cup in Wales, the HSBC Champions in China and the Australian Masters.

The American did not qualify for this week’s Tour Championship, the final event of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup playoffs.
