Check out the form stats of those teeing-up at Albany, in the opening round of the Hero World Challenge on Thursday. Compiled by Andy Swales.

"Rickie Fowler has enjoyed podium finishes in both previous visits to Albany, while his eight rounds at the course come at an average of 67.75."

Professional golf welcomes back Tiger Woods for this week's Hero World Challenge at Albany in The Bahamas.

The 14-time major champion has not played a competitive round for more than nine months, and has not completed 72 holes since this event last year.

Needless to say, it is highly unlikely that the 41-year-old will find himself in contention on Sunday in this end-of-season invitational event on the PGA Tour.

Woods is one of just 18 pros teeing-up at the Ernie Els-designed layout, which sits close to the south-east coastline of New Providence island - and around 180 miles from mainland America.

Albany resort has plenty of water and sand, and plays host to this lucrative tournament where even the player who finishes last will take home a six-figure cheque - providing they complete 72 holes.

With reputations not at stake this week, the tournament has the feel of an exhibition event, where the stars will feel more relaxed than normal, and in a mood to entertain the crowd by playing shots they wouldn't consider most weeks of the year.

And with this in mind, it may just suit the likes of Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler. DJ makes only his second start in 10 weeks, while Fowler has enjoyed podium finishes in both previous visits to Albany. Fowler's eight rounds at the course come at an average of 67.75.

Meanwhile, the European Tour's No 1 for 2017, Tommy Fleetwood, continues his busy schedule, as he tees-up for a sixth successive week - and eight out of nine.
