Tiger Woods announced a big-time field for his golf tournament, set to take place in The Bahamas later this year.
While Woods continues to recover from the injuries suffered in his single-car accident earlier this year, he’s starting to take some big steps. It remains to be seen when Woods will get back to playing professionally, but he’s already been spotted on the golf course, walking without crutches.
In the meantime, Woods will host the 2021 Hero World Challenge, which will have a loaded field of elite golfers.
“So excited to welcome these incredible players to the Hero World Challenge. With 15 of the top 20 in the field, I know it’s going to be a great week,” Woods announced.
