Posted: Updated:

LA JOLLA (CNS) - Tiger Woods will get a final chance to prepare for his latest comeback to the PGA Tour when he plays in the Farmers Insurance Open's pro-am at Torrey Pines Golf Course today, one day before the start of the tournament.

Woods is set to tee off from the first hole of the North Course at 6:40 a.m. as part of a fivesome with four amateurs.

The 42-year-old Woods has not played in a PGA Tour event since last year's Farmers Insurance Open, when he missed the cut, shooting a 4-over par 148 for two rounds. Woods then underwent a fourth back surgery that sidelined him for the next 10 months.

Woods returned to play in the Hero World Challenge, an unofficial event in the Bahamas Nov. 30-Dec. 3, where he tied for ninth in a field of 18 with an 8-under 280 for four rounds.

The 156-player field is led by defending champion Jon Rahm, who rose one spot to second in the Official World Golf Ranking with his victory in the CareerBuilder Challenge, hich concluded Sunday in La Quinta.
