Tiger Woods Considering Playing In This Month's PNC Championship

Could Tiger Woods' comeback tour happen sooner than we all think?

Golf.com reports Woods is seriously considering playing the PNC Championship alongside his son Charlie, and it might happen in just two weeks.

The outlet reports Woods will “test next week and make a call.” He plans to make an official decision after hitting balls, playing golf and evaluating the readiness of both his body and swing, Golf.com reports.

The PNC Championship runs Dec. 18-19 and is a 36-hole team event with a field typically comprised of major champions and their parents or children, according to its website. Tiger and Charlie Woods finished seventh in the 20-team field in 2020, per Golf.com.

While it isn't clear if Woods will be good-for-go come tournament time, Woods did post a swing video — just three seconds of him hitting a single iron shot — that sent social media into an uproar. Woods’ condition up to that point was largely unknown; suddenly it was clear how much progress he’s made.

The 45-year-old sustained several injuries to his right leg and foot in a single-car roll-over car crash earlier this year, and many wondered if a return to golf was even possible for Woods.

Just weeks ago, Woods' posted a video of himself hitting balls for the first time since his February car crash and said he’s “making progress.” He made it clear his days of playing full-time on the PGA Tour are likely over, but could his be when he returns to the course?
