Tiger Woods plans on playing in the Genesis Open at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles in February.

Now that Tiger Woods has finally returned to competitive golf after battling a back injury, he decided to bring back a Christmas "tradition" for his children.

Woods tweeted a picture of himself dressed as a different sort of Santa Claus - the 'Mac Daddy Santa' - which apparently is a buff, and shirtless, Santa with white hair under an Oakland Raiders cap.





Woods even dyed his goatee white.

Northern Irish world number two Rory McIlroy offered a hilarious response to Woods. Woods made his return to competition at the Hero World Challenge earlier this month and showed glimpses of his old self.

The 14-time major champion plans on playing in the Genesis Open at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles in February. He'll probably wear a shirt.
