The world number one was crowned against Tiger Woods. Scottie Scheffler won the Hero World Challenge on Sunday, a tournament on the American circuit organized by the Tiger Foundation. Scheffler won by 20 strokes, three ahead of Austria's Sepp Straka, four over Justin Thomas and five over Tony Finau and Matt Fitzpatrick. Woods, who was returning to competition after seven months out due to his latest operation, on his right ankle, finished 18th out of 20 participants, in the par of the field after rounds of 75, 70, 71 and 72 shots.

Scheffler closed a year in style in which he won the Phoenix Open and The Players, although he was unable to sing bingo in any of the four majors (tenth in the Masters, second in the PGA, third in the US Open and 23rd in the British Open) and suffered a heavy setback in the Ryder Cup. the worst defeat in foursomes in the history of the competition, 9&7 together with Koepka against Hovland and Aberg. The American leads the world rankings ahead of Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm, and in 2023 he has amassed $21 million in earnings.

The big star of the week was Tiger, back a month shy of his 48th birthday. Woods held up well physically, especially when it came to walking around the course, although he admitted that his golf was somewhat "rusty" after so many months without competing. El Tigre confirmed that his goal is to play one tournament a month during 2024, which would be his greatest regularity in recent years, marked by injuries and a traffic accident in 2021 that almost cost him to lose his right leg. "I think I can keep up that pace. One week to compete, two weeks to recover and another week to work before playing again. Right now there's no reason why I can't be in that rhythm. I feel like my game isn't that far away, I just need to get in better shape," said Tiger, who will compete alongside his 14-year-old son Charlie in the PNC Championship next week. The 15-time major champion still dreams of giving himself another chance at the Grand Slam, especially at the Masters at Augusta, and breaking the historic tie with Sam Snead as the biggest winners on the American circuit, with 82 titles each.
