PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Tiger Woods has officially committed to next week's PLAYERS Championship.
It will be the first time Woods has played since finishing fourth at the Masters. He skipped this week's Wells Fargo Championship -- an event he has won and typically plays -- because of a change in the schedule.
Woods usually takes three weeks off after the year's first major. The Wells Fargo Championship comes only two weeks after the Masters.
Woods last won THE PLAYERS Championship in 2001, his only victory in the event.
Last year, Woods tied for 40th after finishing the week 1 under.
He comes into this year's tournament with three wins and only one finish outside the top 5 in five stroke-play events on the PGA TOUR.
