Tiger Woods will return to competition next week, though it won’t be at a PGA Tour event.

Woods will be among the many star players who will tee it up in the JP McManus Pro-Am on Monday-Tuesday at Adare Manor in Ireland.

Woods hasn’t competed since withdrawing from the PGA Championship after a third-round 79. Woods did not play the U.S. Open earlier this month as he continued to prepare his body for next month’s Open Championship at the Old Course at St. Andrews. Woods also finished solo 47th at the Masters in April, his first official Tour start since suffering severe leg injuries in a single-car accident in February 2021.

Here is more information about the pro-am that Woods is competing in:

Who? Thomas Bjorn, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Sam Burns, Patrick Cantlay, Paul Casey, Bryson DeChambeau, Luke Donald, Paul Dunne, Matt Fitzpatrick, Tommy Fleetwood, Rickie Fowler, Padraig Harrington, Tyrrell Hatton, Tom Hoge, Dustin Johnson, Martin Kaymer, Brooks Koepka, Jason Kokrak, Matt Kuchar, Shane Lowry, Leona Maguire, Graeme McDowell, Paul McGinley, Rory McIlroy, Collin Morikawa, John Murphy, Alex Noren, Thorbjorn Olesen, Mark O’Meara, Pat Perez, Ian Poulter, Seamus Power, Jon Rahm, Justin Rose, Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, Adam Scott, Cormac Sharvin, Cameron Smith, Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Brandon Stone, Justin Thomas, Harold Varner III, Lee Westwood, Bernd Wiesberger, Danny Willett, Tiger Woods and Ian Woosnam.
