Tiger Woods will soon be back in action.
On Wednesday, the 45-year-old golfer revealed that he will participate in next weekend’s PNC Championship with his 12-year-old son Charlie, his first golf tournament since nearly losing his leg in a car crash on Feb. 23 in California.
“Although it’s been a long and challenging year, I am very excited to close it out by competing in the @PNCchampionship with my son Charlie,” Woods tweeted.
“I’m playing as a Dad and couldn’t be more excited and proud,” he continued.
Woods shares Charlie and daughter Sam, 14, with his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren.
The PNC Championship features golf champions teaming up with family members. The first round gets underway Saturday, Dec. 18.
Last month, he posted an Instagram video of himself hitting balls on the course in the first clue a return was near.
It’s been speculated that the PNC Championship would mark Woods’ return to the sport. The 15-time major winner recently opened up about what the future could hold for him.
“As far as playing at the Tour level, I don’t know when that’s going to happen,” Woods said last week in his first public appearance since the crash. “Now, I’ll play a round here or there, a little hit-and-giggle. That’s something that for a while there it didn’t look like I was going to. Now I’m able to participate in the sport of golf. Now, to what level, I do not know that.”
