In a press release at TigerWoods.com, the 14-time PGA TOUR winner announced planned commitments to five tournaments after next week's PLAYERS.
First, Woods will be returning to TPC Sawgrass on May 7 for the first time since his title there in 2013. Four weeks later, he'll tee it up at Muirfield Village for the Memorial (June 4-7). Starts at the U.S. Open (June 18-21), The Greenbrier Classic (July 2-5), The Open Championship (July 16-19) and the Quicken Loans National (July 30-Aug. 2) will ensue. Woods always makes news when he commits or opts out of an expected start, but it's probably a smart compromise to issue just one statement on a schedule given that he's currently 116th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Tiger Woods was his old self in today's third round of the 79th Masters, spinning a 4-under-par 32-36=68 to post 6-under 210 and join Rory McIlroy as clubhouse leaders through 54 holes.

Woods walked off with bogey at the par-4 18th, but he dropped six birdies prior to it. He penciled in 4s on all four par 5s. The birdie at 13 elicited a fist pump from the 14-time major champion. He yanked his drive into the trees, but got a great break. From there, he laid up to about 175 yards and eventually poured in a mid-range look. Woods also nearly holed his tee ball at the par-3 fourth for the gimme. This is his lowest score at Augusta National since a final-round 67 in 2011. It comes on the heels of Friday's 69. The last time he connected sub-70s in the same week of the tournament was in 2005 when he shot 66-65 in the middle rounds en route to what remains the most recent of four titles here. At the time he signed today's card, Woods was positioned nine strokes off the lead of Jordan Spieth, who has seven holes to complete.

Tiger Woods spun a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round of the Masters to post 2-under 142 at the midpoint.

He's 12 strokes back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jordan Spieth, so it's not realistic for Woods to pick up his 15th title in a major, but that you can't rule it out entering the weekend speaks to just how well he's been striking it this week. Woods hit 14 greens in regulation today and covered a lone bogey-4 at No. 6 with birdies at 1, 7, 8 and 11. Only the eighth hole is a par 5, so he could have scored even lower. Nevertheless, it's his first round in the 60s in competition at Augusta National since he polished off a T4 in 2011 with 67.

Tiger Woods signed for a 1-over-par 37-36=73 following his opening round of the 79th Masters.

Back inside the ropes since withdrawing during the Farmers with a sore back, the four-time champ at Augusta National hit 11 greens in regulation and birdied three of the four par 5s, but that was all he could find today. Woods also squared four bogeys en route to matching his highest lid-lifter since he opened his last title (in 2005) with 74. He's nine swings back of overnight leader Jordan Spieth.
Apr 9 - 7:11 PM

Tiger Woods announced today on his website that he's committed to next week's Masters.

The statement in its entirety: "I'm playing in the Masters," Tiger said Friday afternoon. "It's obviously very important to me, and I want to be there. I've worked a lot on my game and I'm looking forward to competing. I'm excited to get to Augusta and I appreciate everyone's support." If he's still having issues with his greenside touch, then it could be a long couple of days pre-cut.
Apr 3 - 3:22 PM

In a statement at TigerWoods.com today, the 14-time major champion informed readers that he will not be committing to next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Woods is an eight-time winner at Bay Hill, but this will be the second consecutive edition in which he won't be pegging it. Instead, he's focusing on returning at the season's first major. He's been out since withdrawing from the Farmers Insurance Open during his opening round when his glutes weren't activating (his words). That was on Feb. 5. This is today's statement in its entirety: "I spoke to Arnold today and told him that I will not play in his tournament this year. I'm sorry I won't be in Orlando next week, but I know it will be a really successful event. I've put in a lot of time and work on my game and I'm making strides, but like I've said, I won't return to the PGA TOUR until my game is tournament ready and I can compete at the highest level. I hope to be ready for the Masters, and I will continue to work hard preparing for Augusta. I want to thank everyone again for their support."

Tiger Woods will not compete in next week's Honda Classic, according to Brian Biggane at PalmBeachPost.com.

This isn't a surprise, but anywhere Woods commits or doesn't commit when probable makes headlines. As a result, he will not qualify for the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship the week after. His timetable for a return to competition remains undetermined.
Feb 19 - 5:04 PM

TigerWoods.com published a short statement by Woods to address last week's withdrawal and his long-term plans.

We already know that Woods is a virtual non-play in most fantasy formats, so consider this a bone thrown at the casual fan. You can read the entirety of his statement at the link below, but here are the most relevant excerpts: "The last two weeks have been very disappointing to me, especially Torrey, because I never want to withdraw. Unfortunately, lately injuries have made that happen too often. This latest injury is not related to my previous surgery. I am having daily physical therapy and I am feeling better every day. ... My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf. Like I've said, I enter a tournament to compete at the highest level, and when I think I'm ready, I'll be back. ... I'd like to play The Honda Classic -- it's a tournament in my hometown and it's important to me -- but I won't be there unless my game is tournament-ready. That's not fair to anyone. I do, however, expect to be playing again very soon."

In an impromptu meeting with the media beside his vehicle in the parking lot at Torrey Pines, Tiger Woods specified why he withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open on his 12th hole.

"It’s just my glutes are shutting off," Woods said. "They don’t activate, hence it goes into my lower back. I tried to activate my glutes the best I could, but they never stayed activated. ... It’s frustrating that it started shutting down like that. I was ready to go. I had a good warmup session the first time around, and I stood out here and got cold and it started deactivating again." On the surface, it doesn't seem to be the kind of problem that should lead another long-term layoff, but it's further proof that Woods' body has reached the point that it simply won't recover as quickly as he expects.

Tiger Woods withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open during his opening round, citing a back injury.

Woods called it quits after completing only 11 holes. He officially withdrew on his 12th hole, which is the par-3 third on the North Course at Torrey Pines. He was 2-over par on the day, which is pretty good considering how poorly he was striking the ball. He found only one of nine fairways, hit five greens in regulation and took 17 putts. Woods' card featured two birdies, but he also squared two bogeys and a double. This is his third WD in his last eight official events. It's his eight as a professional in 304 starts. He's expected to play The Honda Classic on Feb. 26-March 1. He withdrew during the finale of last year's Honda due to back spasms. Less than a month later, he underwent surgery.

Tiger Woods suffered through the worst round of golf in his professional career, ultimately signing for a 12-over-par 44-38=82 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

When Woods wrote down a 44 on his first nine, the back nine at TPC Scottsdale, it tied a 44 on the back nine at Muirfield Village in the third round of the 2013 Memorial Tournament for the worst of his career. He then went to work on even bigger benchmarks. His previous worst professional round came in the 2002 Open Championship, swallowing a third-round 81 in horrible weather at Muirfield Golf Links. He had never failed to break 80 in a regular PGA TOUR event until today. At the time of his posting, his 13-over 155 placed him in last place with three strokes to spare. Today's colorful scorecard featured two birdies, seven pars, six bogeys, two double bogeys and a triple bogey on the par-5 15th. The problems were everywhere, but the glaring issue continues to be his short game. Simply put, this appears to be a new low point in the storied career of Tiger Woods.

Tiger Woods posted a 2-over-par 39-34=73 in the first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

How one perceives Woods' opening round of 2015 will largely depend on perspective. He spent the better half of his front nine battling the chipping demons first manifested at his Hero World Challenge late in 2014. In fact, he was 4-over through four holes. A 13'4" birdie on the par-4 fifth was his lone bright spot on the front, to go with three bogeys and a double bogey. His back nine featured an eagle from seven inches on the par-5 13th and a two-putt birdie on the par-4 17th from 20'1". Several of his drives were extremely good on the back nine, and the putter didn't hurt him. The optimist will note that he played his last 14 holes in 2-under. How he progresses over his next 18 holes will, no doubt, be heavily scrutinized.

While attending an awards presentation after a ski competition in Italy where girlfriend Lindsey Vonn broke a record, Tiger Woods lost a tooth in a collision with a media member covering the event.

Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, released the following statement today: "During a crush of photographers at the awards podium, a media member with a shoulder-mounted video surged toward the stage, turned and hit Woods in the mouth. Woods’s tooth was knocked out by the incident." Multiple photos show the gap. You can view the aftermath by clicking on the link below. Meanwhile, we'll take this opportunity to remind you that Woods will open his 2015 schedule at next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Jan 19 - 2:33 PM

Two days after Golf.com reported that Tiger Woods would play the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the golfer confirmed the news on his website today.

Woods will begin his 2015 slate at TPC Scottsdale. The tournament will be contested on Jan. 29-Feb. 1, concluding on Super Bowl Sunday. The NFL's championship game will also be held in the Valley of the Sun (in Glendale, Arizona). The 79-time PGA TOUR winner went ahead and announced as well that he'll compete in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines the following week. "It will be great to return to Phoenix," Woods said. "The crowds are amazing and always enthusiastic, and the 16th hole is pretty unique in golf. Torrey is a very important place to me. My pop took me there when I was younger, and I have a lot of special memories of watching the TOUR play there when I was growing up."

According to a report at Golf.com, Tiger Woods is sizing up a start at the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Jan. 29-Feb. 1.

The website cited "two sources" that claim that Woods has reserved a courtesy car and occupancy at a nearby resort. The commitment deadline is 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, Jan. 23, but news of his attendance is almost always announced beforehand. When asked for a comment, Woods' agent didn't deny the expectation. "Once we have some news, we will be sure to advise," he said. Woods hasn't competed in the WMPO since sharing fifth place in 2001. While the NFL will be in town for the Super Bowl the same week this time around, it's possible that he's equally intrigued by Tom Weiskopf's redesign of TPC Scottsdale's Stadium Course.
