Per Woods' official website, he intends to participate in his invitational event. He also plans to compete in the Safeway Open (Oct. 13-16), the Turkish Airlines Open (Nov. 3-6) and the Hero World Challenge (Dec. 1-4).

Woods originally planned to return in early 2016 after his first operation, but golf journalist and author Robert Lusetich reported in February that Woods' condition was getting worse—that it was painful for him to sit and he had to sit in cars with the seat fully reclined. 

In July, Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, said in an email to the Golf Channel that the 14-time major winner would not play during the 2015-16 season.
