Tiger Woods may be playing his first golf tournament since April but he’s certainly not easing himself back into action.
The 47-year-old is teeing it up this week at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.
It is his first PGA Tour start since he withdrew from the Masters and had surgery on his right ankle in April.
But Woods is still as focused and disciplined as ever and has reportedly been texting players at 4am, asking them what they are ‘doing to get better’.
Former golfer turned TV analyst Brandel Chamblee claimed on Thursday that he’s aware of PGA Tour players who have received text messages from Woods at 4am saying: ‘I’m in the gym. What are you doing to get better?’

The gym work is clearly paying off for Woods because he hit his first tee shot 326 yards.
After a pair of pars to start his round, Woods birdied the third to move to one-under.
