Tiger Woods keeps golf fans guessing over his first PGA Tour event of 2019

Woods, who will be embarking on what will be a 23-year spell on the world’s richest stage, is on record as stating he will again contest the January 24th starting Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines near San Diego, and as he did earlier this year.

But as Woods left Nassau on his private jet headed west to Los Angeles to connect with an 11pm local time Sunday departing Qantas flight to Melbourne, Australia there was every chance Woods could tee-up in the first week of January in Hawaii.

For the first time in five years, Woods has qualified for the New Year starting ‘winners only’ Sentry Tournament of Champions by virtue of his Tour Championship triumph.

“We haven’t sat down and actually confirmed anything in my schedule for next year,” he said after finishing 17th in the elite 18-player Hero World Challenge field.
