UPDATE: Tiger just tweeted: “Looking forward to the competition next week, just committed to the Players.”
ORIGINAL POST: Tiger Woods has committed to playing The Players Championship next week, according to Garry Smits of the Florida Times-Union.
Tiger had to miss this week’s Wells Fargo Championship due to knee and Achilles issues but he apparently feels good to go next week for golf’s unofficial 5th major.
As has been pointed out by a couple of the beat writers on Twitter, however, this of course does not guarantee that Tiger sees the first tee on Thursday. He could still withdraw if he feels he is not ready for tournament action.
