Woods, 47, is hosting the Nov. 30-Dec. 3 tournament in Albany, Bahamas which features six top-10 players in its 20-player field, including American world number one Scottie Scheffler.
Woods did not play in a major tournament this year, withdrawing from the Masters due to his ankle operation and missing the PGA Championship, U.S. Open and British Open.
He has played a limited competition schedule since suffering serious leg injuries in a 2021 car crash.
