Tiger Woods could be about to make his return from his “indefinite break” from golf in just two weeks’ time at the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona, according to reports coming out of Australia’s Herald Sun newspaper.
Woods’ last tournament appearance came at the JBWere Australian Masters in Melbourne, which he won. His now infamous car crash 12 days after that victory led to a string of allegations about his private life. The troubled golfer has since been in hiding, only issuing a carefully worded statement on his website apologising for his “transgressions.”
Woods is scheduled to participate in the WGC event as the top 64 available golfers in the world ranking automatically qualify. Any competitor wishing to withdraw must notify the organisers before February 12.
Despite a two-month absence from the PGA Tour, Woods has only missed one event in which he would normally compete, the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego.
Should Woods show up in Arizona, it would be the second year running that he has made a much anticipated comeback at the WGC event. Last year Woods resumed playing at the Match Play following an eight-month absence because of the knee injury that he sustained during the 2008 US Open.
