His yacht may be close to Hilton Head, but Tiger Woods is not in the field at the RBC Heritage
Sometimes a yacht that sails the coast is just a yacht that sails the coast.
Despite widespread speculation that Tiger Woods would play at RBC Heritage next week - which is due to the fact that his Yacht Privacy is being pursued to St. Simons Island, Georgia, relatively close to Hilton Head, SC, the site of the Heritage - that 15 times the main champion did not register before 5 p.m. Friday deadline and will therefore not make his return to the PGA tour in Harbor Town.
Woods hasn't played an official tour event since February, when he was the last to land among the players who did the editing at the Genesis Invitational. He then skipped the next four tournaments, including the Players Championship, to rest his aching back. Then, of course, the coronavirus pandemic forced an interruption of almost three months.

Woods only made three official tour starts in the 2019/20 season - a win at the Zozo Championship, a T-9 at the Farmers Insurance Open and his 68th place at the Genesis. He is currently number 11 in the world rankings.
Fans had the opportunity to watch Woods play when he and Peyton Manning teamed up last month to beat Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in The Match: Champions for Charity, which raised more than $ 20 million for COVID- 19 relief gathered. Woods looked healthy and played fairly well in this exhibition, causing many to wonder if this would make him go back into action in one of the early events of the revised tour schedule, although he hasn't been with Colonial since 1997 and has played at Harbor City since 1999.
Where Woods will actually return remains a mystery. He is a five-time winner of the Memorial tournament, which he never missed if he's healthy enough to play. This event, moderated by Jack Nicklaus, will take place from July 16-19 at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio. Muirfield Village will also host another PGA tour event the week before, which may offer Tiger another place to continue its season.
Whenever Woods tees off next, it gives him another chance to win his 83rd PGA Tour event and break a tie with Sam Snead to score the most victories ever
