PGA Golf Playing Field for the 2017 Hero World Challenge Hosted by Tiger Woods

The 2017 Hero World Challenge golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from November 30 to December 3, 2017, at the Albany Resort located in New Providence, the Bahamas. Here is a list of the playing field of top PGA golfers for the 2017 Hero World Challenge. 

The Hero World Challenge is an invitation only event hosted and run by Tiger Woods and the big news for the 2017 edition is that Tiger Woods will be playing as he makes his comeback to competitive golf. The field is limited to the top 16 available players plus two wild-card exemptions. Tiger Woods exempted himself into the field for 2017.

The Hero World Challenge dates back to 1999. Tiger Woods holds the record for most wins with five. Graeme McDowell and Davis Love III are tied for 2nd with two wins each. Tiger donates all his prize money from this event to his charity.

Jason Day and Marc Leishman were originally scheduled to play this week but both subsequently withdrew to spend time with their families. This event almost always attracts a top field because all players who finish the event are guaranteed to earn at least $100,000 and the winner gets $1 million.

Players listed below next to their current world golf ranking. If a player has a year next to his name that is the year he won this event.
