Hero World Challenge: The Official World Golf Ranking currently has Tiger Woods at 1,266.
He might break into the top 250 in two Mondays.
The Hero World Challenge, which takes place the following week, will mark Woods’ first start since the July The Open at St. Andrews. What would happen if Woods triumphed in the 18-man competition at Albany in the Bahamas? Nosferatu, the OWGR expert on Twitter, predicts that Woods would climb more than 1,000 spots and enter the top 250 if that happened.
Of course, it’s unlikely that Woods will be winning the trophy with eight of the top 11 players in the world competing with Woods still limited nearly two years after a car accident in February 2021. However, since Hero is an unofficial Tour event, Woods would not achieve his 83rd career victory and end his tie with for the Tour’s record of victories if he were to triumph.
Three times this year, Woods has put his putter to the test. He missed the cut at the Old Course, withdrew after three holes of the PGA Championship, and finished 47th at the Masters.
We might see him perform three times in December.
Woods will participate in the upcoming edition of The Match on December 10 at the Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Florida, in addition to his Hero start. He may also join his son Charlie in competing in the PNC Championship in Orlando, Florida, an event he has participated in in the past two years but has not yet formally committed to.
