The moment we’ve all been waiting for… Tiger Woods returned yesterday at noon at the Hero World Challenge in Nassau, Bahamas. Most odds-makers have Zach Johnson (45-1) and Tiger Woods (40-1) at the very back of the pack and Dustin Johnson and Jordan Speith as the betting favorites. And he played well (the first 15 holes), which is why golf can be such an evil game — Tiger made double bogey on No. 16 and 18 to finish one over on the day. J.B. Holmes is the leader after day one at -8.
The Hero World Challenge features an exclusive 18-player field made up of the world’s best PGA TOUR players, all competing for the $3.5 million purse and the Hero World Challenge trophy.
In what originally was founded in Southern California, the Hero World Challenge moved to Isleworth Golf & Country Club in Windermere, Florida, in 2014 after the Tiger Woods Foundation and Tavistock Group joined forces to write a new chapter in the tournament’s history. The 2015 Hero World Challenge was the first event to be held outside of the United States, and will be held at Albany once again in 2016.
the Hero World Challenge is a driving force of philanthropic support for the Tiger Woods Foundation, Tavistock Foundation and the Albany Scholars Program. Past champions include host and five-time champion Tiger Woods, defending champion Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Zach Johnson and Jim Furyk.
