It’s a Thursday afternoon, the final day of November, and you’re probably just trying to hibernate and hide from your work. The good news is you’ll have a pretty amazing diversion to ignore said work. At this event last year, Woods led the field in birdies. Of course, he came in 15th of 17 players, but the birdie runs whipped everyone into a frenzy after waiting and waiting for Woods to finally play competitive golf.
There is much curiosity surrounding Woods these days, some of it morbid and some of it genuine. But everybody has an opinion, and everyone wants to witness whatever it is that happens next with Woods. Hopefully we get four whole rounds of it this weekend.
Here’s a look at the schedule of events so you can watch all the action.

Tiger Woods will make his return to professional golf on Thursday at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. Woods has not played in a competitive event in 10 months, but he will tee it up with Justin Thomas on Thursday at 12:05 p.m. ET, and we’re going to be able to watch the entire show.
We could get more of the same Tiger-mania this year, with birdies rolling in during a four-day stretch where not winning but just completing 72 holes is the priority. Woods is almost certainly going to finish in the bottom half of the 18-man field and that’s fine. We just want to see him back in front of the cameras and playing against some of the top pros in the world. We’ll get that on Thursday, when he tees off with reigning player of the year, Justin Thomas.
