According to reports, Woods and Jordan’s friendship fell apart in 2009 – when the former’s private life was being discussed in headlines. However, looking back at their earlier appearances, both stars seemed to be really close. Though many say Woods got his life back together, the two idols never seem to have rekindled their friendship, at least not publically. Additionally, Woods was reportedly advised against befriending Jordan.

Will Woods play in his Hero World Challenge?


While Woods is on his way to recovery, it is difficult to say when he will return to the golf course. The 45-year-old recently tweeted about the Hero World Challenge in December but did reveal information about him playing. He was also seen going to his doctor’s appointment late last month. He was in crutches, putting his weight on his injured right leg.
