Woods ready to make comeback

Woods ready to make comeback
Tiger Woods  (in pic) returns to competition after a four-month injury layoff this week at Isleworth, the same gated community where his historic golf career began to unravel five years ago.

Woods, who has played only seven events in 2014 due to a nagging back injury, will make his comeback starting Thursday at the Hero World Challenge, an 18-player invitational event that benefits his charity foundation. Seven of the world’s 11 top players will compete, including eighth-ranked Australian Jason Day in his return from a back injury and 11th-rated Jordan Spieth, coming off a victory in last week’s Australian Open, but not world number one Rory McIlroy. “We’re thrilled about the depth and talent of our field,” Woods said.

Woods, ranked 24th, moved the event this year from California to the same neighborhood where he drove into a fire hydrant in late November of 2009. That began a series of revelations unveiling a sex scandal that led to Woods’ divorce from wife Elin in 2010 and damaged his once-perfect image with major sponsors.
