After a three-week break following the Masters, Tiger Woods will return to the PGA Tour with starts at the Wells Fargo Championship next week and the Players Championship the following week.
Woods made the announcement Thursday, another confirmation of his good health and his intention of playing a full competitive schedule for the first time since 2013.
“Break over. Time to get back to work at @WellsFargoGolf and @THEPLAYERSChamp,” Woods tweeted Thursday.
The Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C., will be Woods’ seventh start in 2018. In three Florida tournaments, Woods finished 12th at the Honda Classic, T2 at the Valspar Championship and T5 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He has climbed to 91st in the Official World Golf Ranking after being outside the top 600 for the better part of two years.
Woods finished T32 at the Masters, his first major championship appearance since the 2015 PGA Championship.
“It’s disappointing that I didn’t hit the ball well enough,” Woods said after the Masters. “But to be able to just be out here competing again, if you had said that last year at this particular time I would have said you’re crazy.”
When he has been healthy, Woods has made the Wells Fargo Championship a regular stop. He won in Charlotte in 2007 but injuries have limited his appearances at Quail Hollow in recent years. It will be his first appearance in the event since 2012.
