Tiger Woods to Return at Hero World Challenge

The 41-year-old, who is the host and a five-time victor of the tournament, will tee off alongside the world's top golfers, including the three top ranked players - Dustin Johnston, Jordan Spieth and Hideki Matsuyama.

In addition to being one of only five men, together with Nicklaus, Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Gene Sarazen, to have won golf's four majors since the introduction of the Masters in 1934, Woods held all four titles at once following his 2001 triumph at Augusta, which completed the much-vaunted "Tiger Slam". His appearance in the tournament past year ended a 16-month hiatus from the sport because of back problems.

After weeks of videos and speculation, Tiger Woods made it official: He's coming back. The tournament is hosted by Woods' charitable foundation.

The 18-strong field includes fellow Americans Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Matt Kuchar as well as other notables including Australian Jason Day and Justin Rose from England.

The controversial sportsman will play at the 2017 Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas ending a nine-month exile from the sport.

"Albany is the ideal setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field", Woods said on his website.

During his recovery from back surgery, Woods was arrested for a DUI when he was found asleep at the wheel of his vehicle in Jupiter, Fla., on May 29. "I would also like to thank the fans for their unwavering support during my injury". Records most birdies and most bogeys of the week but finishes 15th of 17 - it was a rocky but encouraging return.

Woods pleaded guilty Friday to reckless driving and was sentenced to 12 months' probation after he agreed to enter a diversion program.
