Just how exciting can a press release get. Well, the answer in some cases is that it may turn out to be as exciting as it gets. Especially if it has tigers and champions. And Tiger Woods happens to be both. A Tiger Woods comeback is hopefully all that it promises.

In a press release, the Tiger Woods comeback to the world of golf in the Hero World Challenge, which is to be hosted by his own foundation was officially announced. The fixture is the first to a fourth of December and the locale is none other than the scenic Bahamas. Speculation has been rife about his return, but Woods confirmed it with his press release reported cbssports.com

Golf lovers across the world are in a celebratory mood as Woods is joined by the likes of Henrik Stenson, Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Patrick Reed, Rickie Fowler, Hideki Matsuyama, Jimmy Walker, Justin Rose, Russell Knox, Matt Kuchar, Louis Oosthuizen, Brandt Snedeker, Emiliano Grillo, Zach Johnson along with J.B. Holmes.

Quoting the press release Woods said, “I am excited to make my return at the Hero World Challenge at Albany and play in this terrific tournament.”

Woods fanatics are waiting with bated breath for the event and see their hero overcome the boundaries of a stint away from competitive golf, injuries and age. It is most probably his last chapter as a star of a golf tournament and the followers of woods are hoping for the best. According to the Wall Street Journal “…at age 40, his ability to stay both injury-free and competitive remains to be seen.”

In a past interview with Charlie Rose Woods, on the verge of becoming 41, confided that he still harbors ambitions of breaking the record 18 major championships held by the great Jack Nicklaus. A good Tiger Woods comeback can ensure just that.

Only time can tell whether fate has that glory too in his rather eventful career.
