As part of the Nexus Cup for the benefit of his Foundation, Tiger Woods was seen golf club in hand this Tuesday, September 12 on the driving range of the Liberty National Golf Club (New Jersey). A first since his operation on his right ankle on April 19.

What is there to dream of a return to competition before the end of the year?

Tiger Woods, results

Sharp, dressed in a gray polo shirt and black Bermuda shorts, Tiger Woods, still “equipped” with a “compression sock” covering his entire right leg, appeared this Tuesday on the practice range of the Liberty National Golf Club (New Jersey).

Le Tigre, 48 years old on December 30, is organizing this week the Nexus Cup, a charity event for the benefit of his Foundation in which Rickie Fowler and Will Zalatoris came to lend their support. Absent since his abandonment at the Masters after making the cut (the 23rd in a row at Augusta), the fifteen-time Grand Slam winner between 1997 and 2019 had surgery on April 19 for post-traumatic arthritis in his right ankle.

Seen several times in recent months during junior competitions alongside his son, Charlie, this is the first time since his post-Masters operation that he appears with a club in his hand. A good omen for the 2024 season? Remember that the PNC Championship, a tournament reserved for professional players and their children, is scheduled for December 16 to 17 in Orlando (Florida) at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club.

Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger Woods (Cypress, December 30, 1975), is an American golfer. Considered by many to be the best golfer of all time, as well as the best of the modern era, in his twenty-year career he won 110 professional tournaments, including 15 majors, making him the most successful player in the history; he held the top position in the OWG world rankings for a total of 683 weeks, of which 281 were consecutive (from June 12, 2005 to October 30, 2010), and is the only golfer to have won all four majors of the modern era within a single year (between 2000 and 2001).

In 2014 he became the first athlete in the world to have exceeded one billion dollars in earnings between victories and sponsors. [5] He was subsequently surpassed by Michael Jordan and his wealth is estimated at 1.8 billion dollars by 2023, making him the second highest paid athlete ever.[6] In 2019, US President Donald Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor of the United States of America.
