Tiger Woods will play in the Wells Fargo Championship, making his sixth career appearance at the U.S. PGA Tour event that he won in 2007.
The May 3-6 event at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, will be the first Tour appearance for Woods since last weekend’s Masters Tournament, where he tied for 40th, 15 strokes behind champion Bubba Watson.
Organizers of the Wells Fargo tournament said in a news release today that Woods, a 14-time major champion, had officially committed to play.
The 36-year-old Woods is eighth in the Official World Golf Ranking. He missed the cut in 2010 in Charlotte, the last time he played the event. Watson, ranked fourth, also committed to the Wells Fargo tournament, along with No. 2-ranked Rory McIlroy and No. 3-ranked Lee Westwood.
