Tiger Woods 2017 schedule: When will he play next? When will he come back?


SHARE THIS STORY

Tiger Woods has finally come back to competitive golf and the PGA Tour after a 466-day absence, returning at the Hero World Challenge in 2016. So, when will Tiger Woods play again? When will he come back to the PGA Tour officially?

Woods' back looked healthy after two back surgeries in Fall 2015, and he appears ready to resume a somewhat normal schedule in 2017. While Woods and his agent Mark Steinberg have yet to commit to anything, Woods is looking at a likely start at the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, played Jan. 26-29, and the 2017 Genesis Open, formerly the Northern Trust Open, at Riviera Country Club. Woods' tournament-running company, TGR Live, now runs the old Los Angeles Open.

Woods may add overseas events to his schedule in the early season, but it's unclear what events he'd consider. In the past, he has made large appearance fees, in upwards of $3 million, to play in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship in the United Arab Emirates on the European Tour. However, those dates conflict with the PGA Tour events he typically plays.



Woods would look to play in his hometown the Honda Classic, the Arnold Palmer Invitational and perhaps another start at the Transitions Championship. Right now, Woods would be ineligible to compete in the WGC-Mexico Championship or the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Woods is exempt in the Masters, the U.S. Open, the Open Championship and the PGA Championship. He's also in The Players Championship.

However, Woods' 2017 schedule is also dependent upon his health and the progress he continues to make in improving his fitness and stamina, as well barring some kind of unforeseen setback.
