Inside Tiger’s Return: Our experts break down Woods’ first start in a year

Tiger Woods is no stranger to comebacks.

It comes with the territory when you’ve had five back surgeries and another five on your knee. But this time feels different. After suffering severe injuries in a February car accident, Woods had a series of rods, screws and pins inserted in his right leg and ankle. Amputation, he said, was a possibility. It was not hard to imagine Woods never walking again, let alone playing tournament golf.

And yet, here we are, less than 10 months later: on the precipice of watching Woods compete again, alongside his 12-year-old son Charlie, in the PNC Championship this weekend.

It’s not the Masters, but, gosh, is it still something: Tiger Woods playing golf again in a nationally televised event.

Among the questions, of which there are many: What will Woods’ swing look like? How will his leg hold up? And what does the future hold?
