Tiger Woods made a comeback in Memorial

Tiger Woods recently confirmed to take part in Memorial – a PGA Tour event being held on the Muirfield Village stadium next week – after 5 months staying at home to recover due to Covid-19.

“I am waiting to make a comeback in the next week. I remember the feeling of competing and taking part in different golfcourses. I am feeling greatly eager for the comeback this time.” Woods wrote it on Twitter on the 9th of July. At this period, this golfer is ranked 14th on the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) and the schedule of making a comeback for him only focus on the one and only destination.

Memorial was also the first destination where Woods made his first debut in PGA Tour since he became the host as well as player for Genesis Invitational in this year’s February. Since then, he claimed to suffer from back pain, therefore withdrew from big tournaments such as the WGC-Mexico Championship, Arnold Palmer Invitational and the main event The Players Championship and then on the “Force Majeure Holiday” due to Covid-19 which literally put an end to the PGA Tour..

During his absence from competitions, Woods used to play golf at The Match during its second season in May, but it was a special play in which Tiger took part in to raise funds with the viewing to helping victims of the pandemic. It was until PGA Tour reopened on the 11th of June did Woods keep on ignoring his peers in the fifth stage – the Workday Charity Open in Muirfield Village. This is also the Memorial Stadium which is hosted by the great Jack Nicklaus. The tournament will be kicked off on July 16 and must follow all of the strict “Health and Safety” rules of the PGA Tour. According to the epidemic’s regulation, Woods will have to undergo different tests before he left for Ohio and then have to undergo a screening before entering Muirfield Village.
