Tiger Woods is staging his big comeback at the Chevron World Challenge. He has to beat 17 other golfers at the Chevron World Challenge in the Los Angeles suburbs. The event starts today on December 1 and will last four days. And though the PGA Tour season is over, it is a good opportunity to make some money on the side.
This tournament is also a chance to Woods to make his big comeback. Last year, the 14-time major champion lost the playoff to Graeme McDowell. This year, there will be no McDowell. However, there will be other players vying for the $5 million prize purse.
Every golfer has a shot at a pretty good check as the prize purse will be shared between 18 golfers instead of 125 golfers. K.J. Choi, Bill Haas, Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson are among the prominent players who will compete at Sherwood.
The sponsor of the Chevron World Challenge is the Tiger Woods Foundation, so it is only natural that Woods would want to play in the event. Tiger is familiar the course and can use this knowledge to his advantage.
The most difficult hole at Sherwood is the 18th green. It was designed by Jack Nicklaus and is protected by a water hazard on the right and a bunker on the left.
Sherwood is the place where Woods might regain his foothold in the golf elite. Tiger will turn 36 years-old in December, so perhaps his birthday present will be the Chevron World Challenge.
