Tiger Woods isn’t completely certain of when he’ll play next, but he reportedly will be competing next no later than October.
According to multiple reports from Latin America, Woods will team with Matt Kuchar to represent the United States in the inaugural America’s Cup.
The tournament will be held Oct. 21-26 in Argentina in a yet-to-be-specified two-man format.
Woods has not competed since the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March. He opted not to defend his title at the Arnold Palmer Invitational two weeks later. Ahead of the Masters, Woods announced he had undergone a microdiscectomy procedure to alleviate a pinched nerve in his back.
The world No. 1 has not set a definitive timeline for his return. Masters chairman Billy Payne said this week at Augusta National that Woods was to be immobilized for two weeks following the procedure. Woods, however, tentatively projected a summertime return.
The America’s Cup would mark Woods’ return to Argentina 14 years after teaming with David Duval to win the 2000 World Cup.
