FLORIDA: Tiger Woods is scheduled to play in Monday’s Seminole pro-member tournament at the golf club in Juno Beach. Woods, 48, is slated to play with fellow PGA Tour golfer Justin Thomas, PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh and Mike Walrath, who is the CEO of the software company Yext. The 15-time major champion is playing the one-day, 18-hole event for the first time.

Woods is competing for the first time since withdrawing from the second round of the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif., on Feb. 16 due to illness. Woods hadn’t played an official PGA Tour event since the Masters last April, when he withdrew before undergoing ankle surgery.

Also competing at the Monday event are Rory McIlroy and his father, Gerry, as well as fellow PGA Tour players Rickie Fowler, Tony Finau, Matt Fitzpatrick, Collin Morikawa and Cameron Young; former NFL quarterback Tom Brady; and Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred.

Woods was making his first start in an official PGA Tour event since he withdrew from the rain-delayed third round at the Masters in April.
