Tiger Woods’ next PGA Tour tournament revealed after setting ‘one event a month’ target

Tiger Woods outlined his plans to play once a month in the PGA Tour in 2024, and after opting to skip January, the 15-time major winner is set to make his comeback next month

Tiger Woods will make his first appearance on the PGA Tour in 2024 next month, competing at the Genesis Invitational at Riviera alongside his event hosting duties.

Woods played just three times in 2023, as his battle with injuries continued. After a seven-month layoff, he competed at last year’s Genesis, before returning to the course for the Masters six weeks later. His trip to Augusta was one to forget though, after being forced to withdraw through injury ahead of the third round.

Another lengthy period away from competing followed, as the golfing great’s recovery from an ankle issue took eight months. He finally made a second comeback of the season at the year-ending Hero World Challenge in December.

Having ended the campaign in the Bahamas, the Tour have announced that he is set to begin his year in Los Angeles in February after a two-month break. His return comes after Woods pledged to play one event a month on the circuit during 2024, starting in February.

“I think that the best scenario would be maybe a tournament a month,” he said whilst on hosting duties at the Hero World Challenge in December. “Again, we have it set up right now the biggest events are one per month. It sets itself up for that.

“Now, I need to get myself ready for all that. I think this week is a big step in that direction.” Woods has opted to skip competing in January, before gearing himself up for a return in LA next month at an event and golf course that is close to his heart.
