"I am excited to make my return at the Hero World Challenge," the 14-times major winner was quoted as saying.

The Tiger Woods Foundation is a charitable beneficiary of the tournament.

The 40-year-old American has been sidelined for 15 months due to back-related issues.

Woods was set to play in the PGA Tour's first event of the new season - the Safewat Open, last month but pulled out just days before the first round.
