Woods gives thumbs-up to Chevron
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.
