Golf Update: Tiger Woods returns to action this week as part of a star-studded field at the JP McManus Pro-Am, which will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

The worlds of sport and entertainment collide this week at Adare Manor in Ireland, the 2027 Ryder Cup venue, where Woods will be joined by Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, and new US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick.

Other notable names in action include Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, and home favourite Shane Lowry, while the amateur field includes Bill Murray, Niall Horan, and Jamie Dornan.

For the two-day event, two competitions run concurrently, with the professionals competing in a 36-hole stroke play competition and each golfer competing in a team event with three amateurs.

What can we anticipate from Woods?

Woods has only played in three televised tournaments since suffering career-threatening injuries in a car accident in Los Angeles last February, competing alongside his son in the PNC Championship in December before competing in the first two men’s majors of 2022.

The 15-time major champion made a surprise return to top-level competition at The Masters in April, where he finished 47th after back-to-back rounds of 78 at Augusta National.

Woods made the PGA Championship cut with a shot to spare but withdrew before his final round at Southern Hills due to injury, following a third-round 79, with the former world No 1 opting out of the US Open to give his body “more time to get stronger.”

The 46-year-old confirmed in April that he would play in The 150th Open at St Andrew’s, with this week’s event serving as a warm-up for the year’s final men’s major.

“That [The Open] is something that’s near and dear to my heart,” Woods told Sky Sports in April. “I’ve won two Opens there, it’s the Home of Golf and it’s my favourite golf course in the world. I will be there for that one.”
