The Tiger Woods comeback tour resumes today in Charlotte, where the 14-time major champ will tee it up at the Wells Fargo Championship. It’ll be Woods’ first tournament since the Masters, where faulty iron play led to a disappointing 32nd-place finish. It will also be the first of back-to-back tournaments for Woods, who’s also slated to play in the Players Championship next week at TPC Sawgrass.
Here’s a look at what’s on tap for Woods:
Tiger Woods Today at the Wells Fargo
Tiger Woods’ tee time today: Woods will tee off at 12:50 p.m. Eastern on the first hole. He’s part of an intriguing group that also includes Masters champion Patrick Reed, who’s also playing his first tournament since Augusta, and 2017 US Open champion Brooks Koepka, who’s playing his first solo tournament since January after missing more than three months with a wrist injury. (Koepka played in last week’s Zurich Classic, the PGA Tour’s only team event.)
Tiger Woods’ tee time Friday: Woods, Reed and Koepka will tee off on the 10th hole Friday at 7:40 a.m. Eastern time.
Tiger Woods’ odds this weekend: Woods’ odds to win the Wells Fargo are 25/1 at the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook. Rory McIlroy is the betting favorite to win the tournament at 7/1, with Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler right behind McIlroy at 10/1. Jason Day, Hideki Matsuyama, and Patrick Reed are at 20/1.
Tiger Woods’ history at the Wells Fargo (previously called the Wachovia Championship and the Quail Hollow Championship): Tied for third in 2004; tied for 11th in 2005; first in 2007; fourth in 2009; missed the cut in 2010 and 2012
What to watch for: As Bob Harig notes at ESPN.com, Woods’ short game has been as good as anyone’s. But he’s continued to struggle from the tee — something he hopes he’s rectified as he approaches a Quail Hollow course that’s longer and more challenging than it was when he last played it in 2012. And at Augusta, he struggled with iron play, traditionally a strength. He’ll be playing this weekend with a new set of irons from TaylorMade.
