Pain-free Tiger Woods is now out-driving Dustin Johnson

Tiger Woods is making his comeback from injury at the Hero World Challenge

Former world No.1 Woods is now ranked 1199th and is a 40-1 outsider in the 18-man field, which features several players who grew up as some of his biggest fans. His last victory was at the 2013 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Woods has downplayed his return in that he doesn't expect to win, although by all accounts he's driving the ball a mile and is 100 percent pain free. One player, Justin Rose, withdrew after the first round.

Dyer Police Chief David Hein said in a statement that the Dyer Police Department K-9 narcotics unit was requested to assist St. John near the IL border, was arrested on Wednesday for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

And as it relates to the new generation of golfers who mostly grew up watching him instead of competing against him, he has a wish that he knows might not be realized. He has done so a record five times, but not since 2011 at a different location. I've been in bed for about two years and haven't been able to do much. However, he also had six double bogeys and finished 15 at 4-under 284. Along with Johnson, who has held on to the top spot since February 2017 despite suffering from a back injury after a fall, the field includes year's three major winners - US Open champion Brooks Koepka, the Open Championship victor Jordan Spieth and PGA Championship victor Thomas.

It's a very good field at the Hero World Challenge, although there are no Canadians. He said when he looks back on his performance past year in the Bahamas, it seems as though he were in slow motion. Also in action will be the European Tour's Race to Dubai victor Tommy Fleetwood and the red-hot Justin Rose, the 2016 Rio Olympics gold medallist.

US Customs detains Florida teen after grandmother's death
Police say they found signs of foul play, as well as French's vehicle - a silver Dodge Dart with a Florida tag DLLT42 - missing. She also said the last time she spoke to her son was Sunday night, and everything seemed fine.

World No. 5 Hideki Matsuyama is the defending champion, who is aiming to regain the title against a formidable line- up.

The field for the $3.5 million tournament is led by world no. 1 Dustin Johnson, who spent considerable time at the scenic and challenging Albany course here on Monday afternoon. Only Tiger has repeated at the tournament, and only Woods and Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell have won it multiple times. It's pretty low key, if there's ever a low-key tournament for him.

UCLA To Appoint Chip Kelly As Head Coach
Sports report says Florida has moved on from the former NCAA and National Football League coach, according to multiple sources . Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense won't be seen in the Southeastern Conference next season after all.

An ideal finish for Woods would be a Top 10, which is doable with the limited field. "He was not concerned about swinging hard and going at it with driver", Faxon observed. Winning isn't realistic. Go with Rickie Fowler at +900 to win. "I hadn't done that in two years".
