Tiger Woods has announced a star-studded field for his return to PGA Tour action at the Hero World Challenge later this month in the Bahamas.

Woods has not featured on the PGA Tour since losing all four of his matches in Team USA’s Ryder Cup defeat at Le Golf National, having finished his previous season with Tour Championship victory.

The invite-only event at Albany is hosted by the Tiger Woods Foundation, with world No 1 Justin Rose and defending champion Rickie Fowler among the early names confirmed to feature.

Fowler birdied the first seven holes of his final round in 2017 to claim a four-shot victory Fowler birdied the first seven holes of his final round in 2017 to claim a four-shot victory

Four of the world’s top five were among the 16 players committed to play in the tournament, live from November 29-December 2 on Sky Sports, with two more exemptions issued at a later date.

Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau, a four-time winner in 2018 who partnered Woods in Paris, will all tee it up in the no-cut event, where former winners Hideki Matsuyama and Bubba Watson are also involved.
