Woods' hopes

Thursday, November 30, 2017

Tiger Woods makes another return to competitive golf this week and despite 10 months on the sidelines recovering from a fourth back surgery, the 14-time major winner's goal remains the same — to win.

While Woods's famous competitive fires continue to rage the former world number one conceded he may have to temper his expectations at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

He takes on an elite 18-player field that includes eight of the top 10 in the current world rankings.

"I just really want to be able to compete this week, play all four days and give myself a chance on the back nine on Sunday to win this thing," Woods told a news conference.
