(CNN) — Tiger Woods announced Friday a return to competitive golf at next week’s The Genesis Invitational, a tournament he hosts.
In a Twitter post, Woods said, “I’m ready to play an ACTUAL PGA Tour event next week @thegenesisinv.”
The occasion will mark the first official tournament start for the 47-year-old since the Open Championship last July. Woods played in three majors in 2022 following the February 2021 car crash just after The Genesis Invitational that left the 15-time major winner with serious leg injuries, but this marks his first PGA Tour event since the ZOZO Championship in October 2020.
The Genesis Invitational runs from February 16-19 at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California. Woods is the host of the tournament and proceeds go to his foundation.
