Tiger Woods to play in 2018 Wells Fargo Championship

Tiger Woods to play in 2018 Wells Fargo Championship”

Tiger Woods is teeing it up in Charlotte.

Tiger Woods will make his first start since the Masters at next week's Wells Fargo Championship, according to the Golf Channel. He earned back-to-back top-five finishes at the Valspar Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Woods won at Quail Hollow in 2007 but has not made the cut there since finishing fourth in 2009.

Woods announced Thursday he will be playing consecutive weeks at the Wells Fargo Championship and The Players Championship. He's also now No. 12 in strokes gained overall on the entire PGA Tour.

He has not played the tournament since 2012 and missed last year's PGA Championship at the course due to injury.

"Generally after this tournament, I put away the clubs for a while", Woods told ESPN.

"I usually take three to four weeks off, through my entire career, and usually the clubs are put in the closet, and I just kind of get away for a while". I pushed myself pretty hard to get ready.

The Players Championship entry is hardly a surprise, given that he has twice won the tour's flagship event, which is widely considered the most prestigious outside the four majors.

He has committed to play in the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills in New York, June 14-17.
