Tiger Woods once again made a re­turn to com­pe­ti­tion in the Ba­hamas at the tour­na­ment he hosts. This time around he ex­ceeded nearly ev­ery ex­pec­ta­tion, twice shoot­ing 4-un­der 68 while ty­ing for ninth among the 18-man field. Hav­ing re-tooled his swing fol­low­ing fu­sion surgery, Woods ap­peared re­laxed, happy and healthy while briefly tak­ing the lead dur­ing the tour­na­ment’s sec­ond round.

What lies ahead for Woods in 2018 re­mains un­cer­tain, as the stop-and-start na­ture of this past sea­son serves as a cau­tion­ary tale. But af­ter a harrowing ar­rest and an­other se­ri­ous surgery, he seems once again fo­cused on his game, in­tent on chas­ing down a new crop of elite tal­ent, some of whom are barely more than half his age.

Woods projects to have a light sched­ule be­fore the 2018

Masters. He has not played in a ma­jor cham­pi­onship since 2015, and has not won one since de­feat­ing Rocco Me­di­ate in an 18-hole play­off at the 2008 U.S. Open. He has an­nounced to play the Ge­n­e­sis Open, February 15-18 at Riviera Coun­try Club in Cal­i­for­nia, as the Tiger Woods Foun­da­tion serves as the Ge­n­e­sis Open host or­ga­ni­za­tion.
