The GOAT of golf had made his comeback earlier last year at the 2022 Masters with a T47 finish, scoring 13-over 301 at the Augusta National Golf course. Earlier this year, he had to pull out of the 2023 Masters on account of injury, and since then he has not been seen in action on the greens. And in a surprise of sorts, the 15 times major winner, a short while ago, was seen walking on a golf course. Following it came another strong hint.

An Instagram post was uploaded by twspot on Tuesday, a fan community dedicated to the legend. The video shows the camera focusing on his son Charlie as he drove the ball, and then panned slowly to Woods, who was observing the game beside the golf cart resting his leg on the same.

It can be observed that the PGA Tour legend is slowly making his comeback to the game. Earlier, he had made the news thanks to the new league as it became known that the pro golfer would be competing in one of the teams in TGL.

And in a piece of recent business news regarding Woods, a billionaire has gone ahead to purchase one of the teams in his league.

Arthur Blank, the CEO of Home Depot, has managed to secure the rights for a team in the tech-focused league. The billionaire already owns Atlanta Falcons in the NFL and Atlanta United in the MLS, and will unveil the new TGL team later this year to represent the same state. The partner worth $7 billion means a lot to the league as Blank owns AMB Sports and Entertainment partnered with TMRW Sports.

Any news regarding Woods’ comeback garners a lot of attention in the golfing world and the same is the case for his new venture, the TGL. Even though the 47-year-old had announced that he would likely be able to play the majors and appear in a few select tournaments due to his injuries, many of his fans are eager to watch the legend on the course soon, even if it is for a short while.
