Despite the fact that the legendary golfer almost had his leg amputated earlier this year, he’ll be teeing it up alongside his 12-year-old son Charlie today.
The father-son event in Orlando runs through Sunday.

The 15-time major champion has been teasing his return for a couple weeks.
In a tweet, Woods said he was “excited” to close out a challenging year by competing with his son.
Although it’s been a long and challenging year, I am very excited to close it out by competing in the @PNCchampionship with my son Charlie. I’m playing as a Dad and couldn’t be more excited and proud.

Woods was injured in a single-vehicle, high-speed, rollover crash in Los Angeles. He shattered the bones in his lower leg.
An investigation found the brakes were never applied on the leased van he was driving.
