Tiger Woods considering return at upcoming father-son event

Tiger Woods is considering a return at the December 18-19 PNC Championships, the annual father-son tournament at Orlando, Florida, GOLF.com reported on Friday.

According to the report, a source โ€œfamiliar with Woodsโ€™ progressโ€ indicated that an official announcement could come as early as next week, following more practice time and how his body reacts to increased play.

Woods was in a single-car accident in the Los Angeles area on February 23 that resulted in devastating injuries to his right leg and foot. Woods said this week that amputation was a possibility before having surgery to repair the leg.

Woods played in last yearโ€™s PNC Championship with his son Charlie, who stole the show as the duo finished seventh in a 20-team field.

In speaking to reporters this week at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas,Woods said he was nowhere near being able to play PGA Tour-level golf, but that he can play a casual round.

โ€œAs far as playing at the Tour level, I donโ€™t know that thatโ€™s going to happen,โ€ Woods said this week. โ€œI play a round here and there. A little hit and giggle. I can do something like that. The USGA suggests playing forward. I really like that idea now.โ€
