Woods, who had not been able to compete properly for a while after injuring his leg in a car accident two years ago, showed a relatively healthy appearance by walking around the course without riding a cart at the previous Pro-Am event.
Woods will start the first round with Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas at 5:04 am on the 17th, Korean time, and Joo-hyung Kim will play with Max Homa and Xander Shopley at 0:46 on the 17th.
