Tiger Woods will be make his first official start since The 150th Open last summer at St. Andrews and first non-major TOUR start since the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP in October 2020. The 82-time winner on the PGA TOUR will be joined by all of the top 30 players in the FedExCup standings, as well as 23 of the top 25 players in the world. These include No. 1 Scottie Scheffler who returned to the top of the Official World Golf Ranking after winning by two shots at last week’s WM Phoenix Open and Rory McIlroy, who finished T10 at last year’s event. Local favorite and 2021 winner Max Homa is in action once again, as is two-time winner of the event Adam Scott. Viktor Hovland will head to Riviera full of confidence, having finished inside the top 5 his last two outings. Similarly, John Ram will be hoping to continue his exceptional run of form that has seen him win twice already on the PGA TOUR in 2023 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express.

    As a golf fan that smile on Tigers face at the end means alot to me. Tiger is still being an inspiration today, I had a below knee amputation on 30.06.2021 due to a workplace accident and Tiger is inspiring me to get back out there playing golf again. What a great champion Tiger is no matter what place he finishes in a PGA tournament, the thing is he showed up and sets an example for so many people to follow. Cheers to you Tiger 🍻

    He was trying to hold back how happy he was on 18. I’m sure it feels so good to think you can compete and then come out with a decent round. Hopefully he was smiling also because his leg was feeling the best it has after 18 holes in a long time.

  3. James Jefferson says:

    He played a lot better than I expected today. Those final 3 holes were truly vintage Tiger. All I could do was smile as I watched.

      @james me to I was smiling all the time, what a player

    • T J says:

      He was swinging well when he played with his boy back in December. Seems to have managed to crank the ball speed back up, 177-180 is putting it out there and only slightly below the likes of Rory at 182-183. Just gotta hope the body holds up and he can get some rounds in, get used to the pressure again.

    • Nicholas Kierstead says:

      I think he played better than a lot of people expected. Maybe everyone.. except Tiger of course. Don’t let this man hang in this thing after today I’m telling you 👀 🐅

    • Paul R. says:

      And then he got a white woman & urinated on her.

  4. Eric Perez says:

    In my opinion what Tiger lacked all these years is his dad by his side. I think he has a new look at things now that Charlie is an up and coming player and may be filling the void his father left.

    • eddieleblanc says:

      @Will agreed, in the HBO doc called “Tiger” he talks about that. very sad, Tiger is still the man though and is must watch tv when he plays.

    • Mark Smith says:

      Yep I think you’re on to something

    • Will says:

      @pulsar_ Tiger has admitted that losing his father was the begin of his downfall in life, which happened to coincide with his golf game. Based on their relationship, especially alluding to the game of golf. I think you’re massively underselling the significance of his fathers death. I couldn’t be more here for the redemption arc though.

    • pulsar_ says:

      It’s more the injuries that have held him back, but hey I gave you a like anyway because Tiger shot 69 today 🤣

  5. Johngofettt says:

    That smile at the end… I’m so glad he’s not only playing, but really seems happy. He deserves it.

  6. Bwin80 says:

    Great to see him scoring, plenty of birdies! Let’s hope he backs it up with another good round and stays in the mix.

  7. Nicolas Bartlett says:

    This gave me the same feeling as the last round of the 2019 masters. As a true fan of golf and of yourself Tiger watching you fight for your love of this beautiful game has been legendary and there will never in my opinion under any circumstances be another more tantalizing or phenomenally magical sports career like yours. It has been a privilege to watch you sir.

  8. Wes Simmons says:

    The birdie on 17
    Had me feeling all warm & fuzzy inside. The limp wasn’t all bad.
    The goat 🐐
    Played well today, out driving Rory & JT.
    Let’s go big guy! 👊🏽👊🏽💯

  9. Dekap says:

    Its wild that this man can still carry over 300 when he’s had major surgery on like every part of the body that involves a golf swing.

  10. Jordan says:

    His speed was impressive, the touch was there and his iron play is still the best in the world
