'He might surprise everybody': Notah Begay is 'fairly certain' Tiger Woods will play PNC Championship and maybe more

Tiger Woods is golf, and it’s been a bummer to have him mostly absent from the game since his single-car crash left his lower body severely wounded.

Of course, we saw him at the Masters, where he made the cut, at the PGA Championship, where he withdrew after the third round, and the Open at St. Andrews, where he missed the weekend.

Woods hasn’t resurfaced much since his appearance at the Old Course, aside from his visit to the BMW Championship at the end of last season for a meeting regarding the LIV Golf Series.

Well, that might change sooner rather than later.

Notah Begay, Woods’ long-time friend dating back to their days at Stanford, joined Colt Knost and Drew Stoltz on SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio to discuss his appearance on the PGA Tour Champions this week. Among other things, they talked a bit about Woods and his recovery.

Begay mentioned that he’s “fairly certain” we’ll see Woods tee it up with his son, Charlie, at the PNC Championship in December.

He also added that “(Woods) might surprise everybody” and play in a fall event.

The field for the Hero World Challenge played in the Bahamas, a tournament Woods hosts, was released Tuesday and Tiger’s name wasn’t listed, though three exemptions will be announced at a later date.
