Tiger back at Hero Chal­lenge

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - Sport -

Tiger Woods will launch his 2018-19 com­pet­i­tive sea­son later this month at the Hero World Chal­lenge which he will be head­lin­ing along with world No 1 Justin Rose.

The Hero World Chal­lenge field fea­tures play­ers from six coun­tries and in­cludes four of the top five and 16 of the top 23 play­ers in the world, Woods said on Thurs­day.

Two ex­emp­tions will be is­sued later to round out the 18-player field.

The in­vi­ta­tional event runs from No­vem­ber 29 to De­cem­ber 2 and will be held in the Ba­hamas for the fourth straight year.

Tour­na­ment host Woods launched the Hero Chal­lenge with his fa­ther in 1999.

It will be the first of­fi­cial com­pe­ti­tion for the 14time ma­jor win­ner since the US lost to Eu­rope in the Ry­der Cup in Septem­ber.
