Tiger Woods is not the only one who will play in the Hero World Challenge after injury. Will Zalatoris, a great 27-year-old golfer, also withdrew from the Masters this year due to a back injury. Zalatoris had to take a break for a long time, and now he will have a chance to return.

Really each week has just progressively gotten a little bit better. I was on a pretty strict ball count, strict amount of time of how much I could practice. Had to spend a lot of time doing rehab basically six days a week. You know, so it's been - I know way more about the anatomy now than I think I ever really wanted to, but I feel really good right now”.
