Woods Defeats Spieth to Win Inaugural Hero Shot Event

Speaking on the eve of the 21st edition of the event, which since 2014 has been sponsored by Hero MotoCorp, Woods said, "Interestingly, when I have done well here it has acted like a springboard to my following season".

Woods declined a spot in the 2019 event won by Dustin Johnson before the killing of Jamal Khashoggi in September 2018.

That led to heavy criticism of the European Tour for going on the with event, which is being played for a second time, January 30-Feb. 2.

Next week, he will be in Melbourne facing the pressure of team competition at the Presidents Cup after being called upon to replace Brooks Koepka, who is recovering from a knee injury.

Woods' comments came after Phil Mickelson became the latest golfer to confirm he would play the event next year.

"Hopefully, that bodes well for the future", Woods said, on the sidelines of the Hero World Challenge here on Monday. It can help grow it. There are a lot of top players playing that tournament.

Woods, who is heading from here to Australia to lead the U.S. into battle
in next week's Presidents' Cup as a
playing captain, was asked if he believed 18 majors was still achievable on the back of a season that also saw him win the Zozo Championship in Japan and climb to seventh in the world rankings. "I have informed Captain (Tiger) Woods of my decision, which he fully supports and understands, and can not wait to tee it up with him and my teammates next week in Australia".
