15-time major championship winner former World No. 1, and one of the richest athletes in the world, Tiger Woods is unarguably the most decorated American golfer.

But sadly, in February 2021, the golfer was involved in an accident while driving his SUV outside the hills of Los Angeles. His car lost its balance, and Tiger Woods injured his leg.

Woods was on complete bed rest but then returned to compete at the Masters. However, his injury forced him to take a brief break from playing, and Tiger Woods has been focused on his health ever since.

The incredibly amazing golfer is now returning to play golf in December. Woods has confirmed that he will be playing in three tournaments next month, starting on November 28.

2022 Hero World Challenge Championship

The Hero World Challenge is a golf event hosted by Tiger Woods that takes place every December.

It's an unofficial event, and the money collected from it is added to the Tiger Woods Foundation. Although it's a part of the PGA Tour, the player's earnings are not added to the official money.

The tournament will start on November 28 with 17 professional golfers who will enter the championship to win the purse of $3.5 million.

The Hero World Challenge will conclude on December 4 at the Albany Golf Course, and Tiger Woods recently confirmed that he will be playing at the event.
