Tiger plans to play Torrey Pines, Riviera

Tiger plans to play Torrey Pines, Riviera”

Tiger Woods has announced his first two tournaments of 2018.

'It is a pretty special time to be a part of professional golf, ' Spieth said ahead of Thursday's opening round of the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

However, the 42-year-old returned in December at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas and will now play his first PGA Tour event for a year at Torrey Pines from 25-28 January.

Woods, whose 79 US PGA titles are three shy of Sam Snead's all-time record, won PGA crowns at Torrey Pines in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2013 and is the event's all-time leading money victor with $6,856,015. It was the 75th victory of Woods' career, and he's won only four times since. "And it's exciting for our town".

Woods has not played all four majors since 2015 - he missed the cut in three of them - because of his back injuries. He chalked it up to a fog delay that pushed back the start of his round by more than two hours.

"I'm very excited to be back at Riviera", Woods said in a statement on Thursday.

"I was very encouraged by my performance at the Hero World Challenge, and hope it was the start of something big", Woods wrote.

As ESPN's Bob Harig notes, the Farmers Insurance Open was the last PGA Tour event Woods played in a year ago before stepping away from the sport for most of 2017. "But I think because of the way that the Hero went and the confidence that he's talking with, the place that he's at in life right now, I think he's in the best position he's been in in a few years to come back and be a regular out here competing". I just have to continue to work on my body and game and see where I pan out. "We're just going to have to wait and find out". "This is all uncharted territory".

The Farmers Open had put together a strong field before the commitment of Woods. Others committed to playing at Torrey Pines include Spain's Jon Rahm, Britain's Justin Rose and Americans Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson.

Woods takes the interest to another level.
