Tiger Woords Farmers Insurance open

Tiger Woods has whipped up feverish excitement among legions of fans by announcing that he will make his season debut at the Farmers Insurance Open on January 25. This will be Woods’ first PGA Tour event in a year and it makes a great deal of sense as the former world number one has a phenomenal record at Torrey Pines. He was hugely impressive on his return to competitive action towards the end of 2017, when he tied for ninth in the 18-man Hero World Challenge field in the Bahamas. His distance off the tee and his general competitiveness surprised many fans, and his re-emergence could be the big story of 2018.
