Tiger Woods makes HUGE announcement ahead of golf return

Tiger Woods will feature at both the Wells Fargo Championship and the Players Championship, in the build-up to June's US Open. The report cited "multiple Golf Channel sources", although Woods's agent, Mark Steinberg, didn't confirm Woods's entry. "We'll know later this afternoon".

The start will be Woods's first at Quail Hollow Golf Club since 2012, although Charlotte used to be a frequent stop for the 14-time major champion.

This will be his seventh start in the tournament at Quail Hollow, which hosted last year's PGA Championship won by Justin Thomas. Woods' win at the Wells Fargo was his first - and only - win in North Carolina. He earned back-to-back top-five finishes at the Valspar Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Woods announced Thursday he will be playing consecutive weeks at the Wells Fargo Championship and The Players Championship.

Woods, who competed in only one PGA Tour event in the past two seasons while dealing with back injuries, returned in January and has had some impressive performances already in 2018. He now ranks 35th in driving distance but just 202nd in driving accuracy.
