Tiger Woods recently made his first public appearance since his horrifying accident earlier this year. Moreover, he was also seen practicing in the range last week. With rumors of a return on the rise, Woods ended the suspense, as he took to Twitter to confirm the news that he will be competing at the PNC Championship next week.

Notably, PNC is a 36-hole casual event where a father-son duo team-up. Hence, Woods will pair with his son Charlie and tee off for the first time this year. Mostly, Tiger is expected to use a cart at the event. Hence, Charlie might tee off while Tiger will go ahead with his approach shots. However, who will caddie Tiger and his son Charlie?

However, he has clarified that he is still far away from a comeback on the PGA Tour. He still requires the strength in his leg to walk 72 holes in four days and get his mojo back, to compete against the best in the business on strenuous courses. How long do you think before Tiger makes his return to the PGA Tour?
