We are done with official PGA Tour events in 2022. Now it's time for golf's silly season.
Make no mistake, though, there's real money on the line at the 2022 Hero World Challenge, with $3.5 million going to the winner of a 20-man field.
The competition, however, won't include tournament host Tiger Woods. On Monday, Woods announced he isn't able to play due to plantar faciitis. Woods will still be on hand for the festivities and is schedule to conduct a 10 a.m. ET news conference Tuesday. Sepp Straka was named his replacement and will get a tee time alongside Justin Thomas in Thursday's first round.
Other notable pairings for Thursday include the all-Texas Longhorn duo of Scottie Scheffler and Jordan Spieth, the British pairing of Matt Fitzpatrick and Tommy Fleetwood, newlywed Collin Morikawa and Viktor Hovland as well as Xander Schauffele and Jon Rahm, fresh off his third DP World Tour Championship.
The Albany course is a par 72 that measures 7,411 yards.
Here's a look at Thursday's first-round tee times. All times ET.
