Woods playing three straight PGA events
By QMI Agency
Tiger Woods will be a regular on the PGA Tour starting next week.
Well, for three weeks anyway.
Woods announced Tuesday that he will play in three straight events, starting with the World Golf Championship-Accenture Match Play Championship in Manara, Ariz. Feb. 20-26. He'll also tee it up in the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., for the first time as a pro -- he last played in the event in 1993, when he was 17, and missed the cut -- then close out the three-week stint at the Cadillac Championship, another WGC event.
"I've heard great things about the Honda Classic, and now that I live here, I want to play whenever possible," Woods said in a statement on his web site. "Jack's (Nicklaus) involvement in the tournament and the benefits to the local community are also important."
Woods has turned in top-15 finishes at the first two tournaments he played in this year. He was tied for third in Abu Dhabi and contended at Pebble Beach before faltering in the final round.
"I'm excited about my start and look forward to keep building," Woods said. "I've made great strides from last year and hopefully all my hard work will pay off with a victory soon."
