While we still wait out the return of Tiger Woods to the PGA Tour, one thing we now know is that he will be playing, health pending, at an inaugural event in Argentina this October.

According to ESPN's Bob Harig, Woods has committed to the event and will team up with Matt Kuchar for what they're calling the Americas Golf Cup, and it will take place October 21-26 in Buenos Aires.

Here is what Tiger's agent, Mark Steinberg, told ESPN this week.

Steinberg said "the deal is now in place" and that he was awaiting word on the venue. The format possibly will be medal-match play, but Steinberg said it is still to be determined. Steinberg, whose company is Excel Sports Management, also represents Kuchar.

It's interesting to think Tiger picked this of all events to commit to this early in the season, and this long since he stepped away from competitive golf to undergo back surgery, but if Woods is heading to Argentina for a new event, it's probably going to be worth his time.

Also, Kuchar has become a serious staple on PGA Tour leaderboards, meaning two of the most popular golfers in the world will be teaming up at this event if Woods is healthy at that time.

While we still don't have word on when Woods plans on actually returning to competitive golf, and major championships, we know that if the back is healthy, we will get to see him in an event come October and that is never bad news for golf fans.
