Tiger Woods Announces He's Returning To The Course

Golf's biggest star is back.

Tiger Woods is coming back.

Golf's biggest star announced on Twitter this afternoon that he'll be making his return to professional golf in about a month.

Woods, who's missed several months with a back injury and his DUI arrest, says he'll be playing in the Hero World Challenge Nov. 30 - Dec. 3 in the Bahamas.

“I am excited to return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge,” Woods said. “Albany is the perfect setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field. I want to thank Pawan Munjal and Hero MotoCorp for their continued support of this tournament and my foundation. I would also like to thank the fans for their unwavering support during my injury.” This is quite an update for Woods, who had said just a month ago that he'd only been able to shoot chip shots.
