Tiger Woods has been paired with Justin Thomas in a dream line-up for his latest return at the Hero World Challenge this week.

Former world number one Woods has not played in nine months after his troublesome back injury flared up again, leading to a fourth surgery in April to remove a disk that was causing nerve pain.

Tiger Woods will make an eagerly awaited comeback at the Hero World Challenge, a tournament he has won five times, and will do alongside US PGA Championship victor Thomas

It marks the first time Thomas, who has six PGA Tour wins in the past 13 months, will play with Woods.

Earlier this week, Tiger Woods revealed he was playing pain free.

“The fact that I don’t have any pain in my lower back anymore compared to what I was living with for years, it’s just remarkable,” he said.
