Ever since his horrific car crash in June, there has been a lot of rumors regarding when we will see Tiger Woods back out in his natural setting, the golf course. The sightings here and there have all given fans a little insight into his progress, but everyone wants to see him doing what he does best.
There was talk that maybe he was going to make an appearance at the recent Ryder Cup, but he would not participate other than to speak with players for motivation.
According to the latest speculation, there’s belief that Woods will be making an appearance at his Hero World Challenge tournament later this month.
Woods unveiled the field for the tournament earlier this year. The tournament week begins on Nov. 29 and Woods could be making an appearance.
The 15-time major champion hasn’t made any official public appearances since his devastating car accident. It would be a significant development if that changed.
????The Hero World Challenge is now just over 3 weeks away. Given Tiger’s current and improving condition, it is expected that he will be there and speaking as host. We could be less than a month away from hearing from Tiger.— TWLEGION (@TWlegion) November 5, 2021
Naturally, golf fans are excited about the possibility.
Just a matter of time. He is coming. https://t.co/2NFry1PjgJ— Riggs (@RiggsBarstool) November 2, 2021

Don’t expect much, though. Still, it would be an important development just to see Woods appearing in person at a golf event.
“If Tiger were to speak at the Hero, I wouldn’t expect to learn very much from him in terms of his health / game but if there’s a presser, questions will surely be asked. Probably along the lines of making a lot of progress and not sure what his future holds for golf,” TW Legion added.

The field for the Hero World Challenge is pretty loaded, too. It’s expected to be quite an event.
It should be a very fun tournament.
“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 on Twitter.
Hopefully we’ll see Woods there, too.
