Golf – Woods close to competitive return

Tiger Woods has revealed that he will return to competitive golf at next month's Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. It will be the 14-time Major winner's first tournament since February. He has been recuperating for the last eight months after enduring a fourth back operation in three seasons. The 41-year-old said: "I am excited to return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge. Albany is the perfect setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field." The 18-man field heading to the Bahamas will also feature Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Thomas, Jason Day, Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose. Woods is 80/1 with bet365 to win the 2018 US Masters outright and 125/1 to land next year's Open Championship at Carnoustie.
