Past champions Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Jon Rahm also will play all-star event in Bahamas
5: Number of times that Tiger Woods has won the Hero World Challenge, which begins today at Albany Club in the Bahamas. Woods, the tournament host, won the PGA Tour exhibition in 2001, 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2011. He is one of five past champions in the 18-man event, joining Jordan Spieth (2014), Bubba Watson (2015), Rickie Fowler (2017) and defending champion Jon Rahm. The 72-hole tournament will conclude Saturday to accommodate Presidents Cup participants’ travel to Australia for next week’s matches. Eleven of the 12 U.S. team members were scheduled to compete this week in the Bahamas. Only Dustin Johnson, who withdrew over the weekend because of a back injury, will not play in the $3.5 million exhibition, which awards world-ranking points (tee times).
