Tiger Woods to play in 2018 Wells Fargo Championship and Players Championship


Tiger Woods will return to competitive golf next week at the Wells Fargo Championship, followed by The Players Championship the week after. The report cited "multiple Golf Channel sources", although Woods's agent, Mark Steinberg, didn't confirm Woods's entry.

Woods, who won the Wells Fargo in 2007, hasn't played at Quail Hollow Club since he missed the cut there in 2012. The course also played host to the 2017 PGA Championship, won by Justin Thomas.

The former world No 1 thoroughly impressed at the Valspar Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational before he made his long-awaited return to a major at the Masters.

The 42-year-old committed to both THE PLAYERS Championship and Wells Fargo Championship via Twitter on Thursday, occupying his schedule for the next two weeks. The course will call for plenty of drivers which will at least give Woods some tournament practice with that club that has been wayward for him, most of the season.

Tiger Woods will tee it up next week in Charlotte for the @WellsFargoGolf.

Woods tied for 32nd at the Masters, failing to break par until the final round. He now sits at No. 91 in the world rankings.
