The time has almost come. Tiger Woods, after being away from the sport for nine months, is finally set to return for the Hero World Challenge.
The Hero World Challenge, hosted by Woods in Albany, Bahamas, will include some of the best players in the world, such as Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Thomas. The 41-year-old will have some stiff competition, but he shouldn’t worry too much about the outcome.
No matter how Tiger Woods does, he will move up in the rankings. He currently sits at 1,199th in the Official World Golf Rankings, but according to @VC606 on Twitter, that number will likely be changing very soon.
As you can see in the chart below, finishing in dead last will result in Woods climbing the rankings 250 places. If he finishes first, as unlikely as it is, Woods will climb over 1,000 places!
If @TigerWoods finishes dead last in next week's #HeroWorldChallenge he will jump more than 250 places in the world rankings! A win would catapult him well over 1000 places in #OWGR, to somewhere around #135! 🙈
Welcome back, Tiger! 🐯
