Tiger will no longer play consistently like he used to.

The news came from the golfer himself, who shared the following message on his Twitter account:

“Although it has been a long and challenging year, I am very excited to close it out by competing in the @PNC championship with my son Charlie,” Woods wrote on Twitter. “I’m playing as a dad and I couldn’t be more excited and proud.”

The 36-hole tournament is scheduled for December 18 and 19 at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando. It will be televised on Golf Channel and NBC.

Late last month, Woods announced that his days as a full-time professional golfer were over after sustaining serious leg injuries in a high-speed accident on February 23 in Southern California.

Woods suffered minute open fractures to the tibia and fibula in his right leg, meaning that both bones broke into at least three pieces and pierced the skin. He also suffered foot and ankle injuries and said the leg amputation was “on the table.”
