Tiger Woods commits to WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship
Tiger Woods announced on his website Friday that he will return to the PGA Tour next week at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Woods, a three-time match play champion, missed last year's event while dealing with the fallout from a car crash on Thanksgiving.
In two events this season, Woods has yet to finish in the top 10. He tied for 44th at Torrey Pines, and Woods shot a final-round 75 to drop into a tie for 20th in Dubai. Woods apologized last week after he was criticized for spitting on a green.
The pairings are not finalized, but Woods is scheduled to face Thomas Bjorn in Wednesday's opening round at Dove Mountain in Marana, Ariz.
