Tiger Woods will welcome a subject that features 16 of the top 23 players in the world — together with himself — to the Hero World Challenge, to start later this month in the Bahamas.
Woods, the match host of the occasion he launched together with his late father, Earl, in 1999 to profit the Tiger Woods Foundation, will likely be joined by No. 1-ranked Justin Rose, No. three Dustin Johnson, No. four Justin Thomas, and No. 5 Bryson DeChambeau among the many 16 players introduced Thursday.
Defending champion Rickie Fowler, Masters winner Patrick Reed and European Ryder Cup players Jon Rahm, Tommy Fleetwood and Alex Noren can even be a part of the sector that may compete in the $three.5 million occasion that begins Nov. 29 at Albany Golf Club in Nassau. Two sponsor exemptions will fill out the 18-player subject and will likely be introduced nearer to the match.
This would be the fourth 12 months the occasion is to be performed in the Bahamas, in Nassau.
Among a few notable match absences are 2014 winner Jordan Spieth — who’s getting married Thanksgiving weekend — and three-time main winner Brooks Koepka.
Last 12 months, Fowler shot a final-round 61 to win by 4 pictures. Woods tied for ninth as he launched a comeback that noticed him begin at 1,199 in the Official World Ranking and transfer to No. 13 this 12 months.
Although the occasion is taken into account unofficial by the PGA Tour, it provides world-ranking factors.
