, Tiger Woods lands shock new job with golf legend, 47, ruled out for months after ankle surgery

TIGER WOODS has landed a new job on the PGA Tour policy board while being forced to sit the year out after ankle surgery.

The 47-year-old has been out of action since April following an injury stemming from a serious car crash he was involved in back in 2021.

Tiger Woods has landed a new role on the PGA Tour Board

But on Tuesday Woods was announced as the sixth player-director on the PGA Tour’s policy board.

After taking on the new role the American said golf is at “a critical point” following the shock plans for the PGA to merge with LIV Golf.

The 15-time major champ joins fellow golf stars Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Charley Hoffman, Peter Malnati and Webb Simpson on the board.

Woods’ appointment comes after 41 top players signed a letter to PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan regarding PGA’s merger with Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) back in June.

The merger has left the golf world in shock as the PGA works with Saudi-backed LIV under one entity named ‘NewCo’.

Woods has been a fierce critic of LIV and has been privately asked by McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler to weigh in on the merger before the final details of deal are agreed.

Woods said: “This is a critical point for the Tour, and the players will do their best to make certain that any changes that are made in Tour operations are in the best interest of all Tour stakeholders, including fans, sponsors and players.

“The players thank commissioner Monahan for agreeing to address our concerns, and we look forward to being at the table with him to make the right decisions for the future of the game that we all love.

“He has my confidence moving forward with these changes.”

Monahan, who has just returned from an undisclosed ‘medical situation’, said the players’ concerns will be taken into consideration when deciding the Tour’s future.

He said: “I am committed to taking the necessary steps to restore any lost trust or confidence that occurred as a result of the surprise announcement of our framework agreement (with the PIF).

“My job in the negotiations is to advocate for what is best for the PGA Tour members today and in the future.

“Any agreement we reach must be shaped by our members’ input and approval earned through our player directors.”
