Tiger Woods to play in Greenbrier Classic
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) Tiger Woods is heading to the hills this summer to play in The Greenbrier Classic.
Tournament organizers announced Monday that Woods had committed to play July 5-8 in the event, which began only two years ago. It is played on The Old White TPC Course, where two years ago Stuart Appleby closed with a 59 to win.
It will be the third time in the last nine months that Woods plays a tournament for the first time as a pro. He played the Frys.com Open in October in San Martin, Calif., and the Honda Classic in March. Woods last played the Honda Classic as a teenager.
Phil Mickelson already has said he is returning to The Greenbrier, giving the 3-year-old event two of the biggest names in golf.
The Memorial Tournament also announced Monday that Woods would play there May 31-June 3.
