Tiger Woods officially returns to the course on December 10, along with Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth in the next episode of “The Match.”
The slate for the next edition of the made-for-prime-time television event was first reported by The Fried Egg and confirmed by golf summary Thursday. Turner Sports did not confirm the TV broadcast, and Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg declined to comment.
The seventh iteration of the exhibit will be held at the Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Florida under the lights. For the first time, the group should tee off at 7 p.m. for a 12-hole evening golf course. The Donald Ross design also hosts the annual Pelican LPGA Women’s Championship, which runs November 10-13.
Woods last appeared on the course at the 150th British Open at St. Andrews, where he missed the cut. The 15-time major champion has played in three major championships throughout the season after returning to the course after suffering multiple leg injuries in a single-car accident in 2021.
Woods is once again set to host the Hero World Challenge in Albany, Bahamas with 20 of the world’s top ranked golfers. There is speculation that Woods will play there, which will take place just a week before ‘The Match’.
Thomas, Spieth and McIlroy will all make their 12-hole debuts, however, in 2020 Thomas joined ‘The Match: Champions for Charity’ as an on-course commentator. Previous installations at the event have included star NFL quarterbacks, as well as LIV golf members Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau.
