It’s quite unheard of for a golf tournament to become one of the major events in December.
However, the only reason why this has been made possible is because of the return of Tiger Woods to competitive action.
Woods had been out of action for about 15 months, but his recent return to the game has made interest in the game, especially the Hero World Challenge soar.
No one could achieve that feat, not Jordan Spieth, who is also competing in the Hero World Challenge, or Phil Mickelson or Rory McIlroy. He has been able to capture the imagination of both golf and non-golf fans as well.
Since the August of 2015, Woods had been out of action, due to a number of back operations that threatened to put an end to his great career.
What everyone now looks forward to, is to see if Woods who has so far racked up 14 majors will make a brilliant return, or if that Woods is gone forever.
