Tiger Woods makes injury comeback at World Challenge golf
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. Woods, a 14-time major champion chasing the record 18 majors won by Jack Nicklaus, has not captured a major title since the 2008 US Open. No player has ever won more than three majors beyond his 39th birthday, something Woods must achieve if he is to catch Nicklaus. "I'm excited to be back competing," Woods tweeted two weeks ago when he announced he was working with Como. Woods has not played since missing the cut at the PGA Championship at Valhalla in August a week after tweaking his back in a stumble at a World Golf Championships event. To stress the point Woods is healthy, his foundation tweeted a link to a Vine video Monday showing Woods hitting a drive Monday and also tweeted the message "He's back." It's the same two-word message that NBA legend and Woods pal Michael Jordan used to tell the world he was ending his retirement, heralding a comeback with the Chicago Bulls that doubled his career total of NBA titles to six. Woods sponsors learning centers that educate 15,000 students each year and scholarships that have sent more than 100 youth to college.
