Tiger Woods has announced that he will make his comeback at the PNC Championship next week.

The tournament sees a field of major champions compete alongside their children or parents and takes place between December 16 and 19 at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando.

Woods suffered open fractures to the tibia and fibula in his right leg after a car crash in February and has not played competitively since.

The 45-year-old has ruled out a full-time return, but revealed his desire to play on a part-time basis and will officially make his comeback at the upcoming event alongside his son, Charlie.

The pair played in the competition last year, finishing in joint-seventh place.

"Although it's been a long and challenging year, I am very excited to close it out by competing in the PNC Championship with my son Charlie," Woods, a 15-time major winner, wrote on social media. 

"I'm playing as a dad and couldn't be more excited and proud."

Woods' return to competitive action was welcomed by Alastair Johnston, the tournament's executive chairman.

"I am delighted to confirm that Tiger and Charlie Woods will be participating in the 2021 PNC Championship," Johnston said. 

"We have been liaising with Tiger and his team for some time and are delighted that he has now decided to make his return to competitive golf at the PNC Championship."
