Meanwhile, Tiger Woods will play the first game of the 2022-2023 season on the PGA Tour, as well as a return to the official tour event after 7 months. Woods had a car accident just two years ago, in February 2021, after finishing this Genesis Invitational. At the time of the accident, the local police said that the interior of the GV80, which Woods was riding in, was largely intact thanks to the airbag installed, and the vehicle became a hot topic.
Due to these circumstances, Woods is said to have built a closer relationship with Chung Eui-sun, chairman of Hyundai Motor Group. Last year, Woods is known to have had a meal with Chairman Chung Eui-sun and expressed his gratitude. Chairman Chung, a sponsor of a golf tournament, secretly calculated the cost of a meal before waking up and became a hot topic. The Tiger Woods Foundation has been in charge of operating the Genesis Invitational since 2017.
