Tiger Woods is set to return to competitive golf at the end of November. After a nine month hiatus, he'll be playing in the 2017 Hero World Challenge November 30 - December 3rd at Albany, Bahamas. 

In a press release, Woods said "I am excited to return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge. Albany is the perfect setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field. I want to thank Pawan Munjal and Hero MotoCorp for their continued support of this tournament and my foundation. I would also like to thank the fans for their unwavering support during my injury."

Woods is the host of the tournament, and his organization manages the event. He's also won the event five times.

This comes after Woods was in court last week in West Palm Beach on DUI charges from May. Woods was given probation, and will take a DUI class.
