Hero World Challenge

Recommended Posts

Golf Channel is here for the Tiger Woods return, as the prominent golf network is expected to expand their coverage of the Hero World Challenge to fit more of the legendary golfer's return to action. Instead of their normal coverage of the event, they will be adding an extra hour to their broadcast and will highlight Woods by posting live look-ins at his performance.

Golf reporter Josh Carpenter reported on X (formerly Twitter):

"Golf Channel and Peacock are expanding coverage at the Hero World Challenge this week. Coverage will now begin at 12:30pm ET tomorrow and Friday rather than the previously scheduled 1:30-4:30 window. Golf Channel will also have live look-ins. Tiger is off at 11:52am tomorrow."

Woods will tee off at 11:52 am ET, and the Golf Channel coverage of the event will begin shortly thereafter. This is usually a pretty big event with a deep field, so coverage is expected. However, the fact that it's Woods' return to the PGA Tour after surgery makes it even more worthy of the said coverage.

 
 

The 15-time Major winner has been absent from the course since The Masters in April, when he had to withdraw from injury after making a record-setting cut. He then underwent ankle surgery and is finally able to get back on the green.

Tiger Woods' return to get a lot of attention from everyone

With Golf Channel officially expanding their coverage of Tiger Woods' triumphant return, it is expected that a lot more eyes will be on the Hero World Challenge than it might otherwise get.

It features Viktor Hovland, Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and other stars, but Woods' return is going to get everyone watching. If he does well, those eyes will remain on the Golf Channel all weekend long.

Per CBS Sports, these golfers have the following odds of winning:

 
 
 
  • Viktor Hovland +400
  • Scottie Scheffler +450
  • Collin Morikawa +800
  • Max Homa +800
  • Matt Fitzpatrick +1600
  • Justin Thomas +1600
  • Cameron Young +1600
  • Sam Burns +2000
  • Jordan Spieth +2000
  • Rickie Fowler +2200
  • Tony Finau +2200
  • Wyndham Clark +2200
  • Brian Harman +3000
  • Will Zalatoris +3300
  • Keegan Bradley +3500
  • Jason Day +3500
  • Sepp Straka +3500
  • Justin Rose +3500
  • Lucas Glover +5500
  • Tiger Woods +8000

It would be a surprise to see Woods do well, but the fact that he's back golfing again is a win in itself. He has commited to appearing monthly on the PGA Tour next year, and this marks the start of that return to prominence.

 
All eyes will be on Tiger Woods this weekend

I think he should have already retired as he has had way too many injuries to ever be very competitive again. Going out just like Arron Rodgers for the Jets

I'm looking forward to seeing how Tiger plays, I hope he plays well. I have low expectations at this point and I expect a lot of rust. Hopefully he gets his game back as we move along and does play the majors and a few others. The game is better when he's playing IMHO.

Good to see Tiger back and competing but it always make me a little upset.

 

Think about it. Golf isn't a sport like football, basketball or baseball where there is a clear age decline/must retire point. Yes you lose some ability but Tiger is only 47.

 

There was no reason Tiger couldn't have been still a top 10 player in the world up until his current age. It just feels like we got robbed of it. The whole 2010's and 2020's so far marred with injuries. It didn't have to be like that

 

Tiger could have kept up his absurd dominant for a decade longer than he did, and then "faded" back into just a top 10 player about right now. Coulda won 120 tournaments probably

I put Tigers downfall in the same bracket as the decision Jerry Krause made all those years ago. We've been robbed as fans, as has Tiger (and the Bulls) of years upon years of greatness. Imagine what could have been.
