Christmas is coming early for golf fans as Tiger Woods will be playing tournament golf twice in the next three weeks.

On Wednesday, the 15-time major champion reposted a social media message that announced he will be teeing it up once again with his son Charlie in the PNC Championship Dec. 14-17 in Orlando, Fla.

This news comes a week after Woods confirmed that his latest comeback will begin at the Hero World Challenge in Bahamas Nov. 20-Dec. 3.

The message from the tournament’s account on X read: “Get your Sunday reds ready because Tiger & Charlie are returning for the 2023 PNC Championship!”

Woods and his son Charlie finished as runners-up to John Daly and his son John Daly II in 2021. Charlie Woods’ high school team won the Florida state golf title earlier this month. Tiger has most recently been seen in public either caddying for or watching 14-year-old Charlie compete.

Woods is recovering from ankle fusion surgery to relieve arthritic pain in his right leg, after severely injuring it in a single-car accident in 2021. Wood, 47, has dramatically cut back his playing schedule in recent years, as injuries and age have taken a massive toll on the golfing legend. 

With the future of professional golf up in the air as the PGA Tour and Saudi-backed LIV Golf try to decide if they are sworn enemies or financial partners, Woods has been thrust back into the spotlight. The five-time Masters champion joined the PGA Tour Player Policy Board last year and the tour undoubtedly would love nothing more than to have Woods back on the course — even if just a handful of times — this coming season.

In early 2024, Woods is expected to target the Genesis Invitational at Riviera which he hosts in February, and, of course, the Masters at Augusta National in April. Anything else would be a surprise, although he has a long and winning history at the Arnold Palmer Invitational which takes place in March.
