For Woods, who returned to competitive golf earlier this month at the Masters after taking two months off to retool his game, it marks a return to a TPC Sawgrass course where he has won twice before, most recently in 2013.
“Looking forward to going back to THE PLAYERS this year, hoping for a repeat of 2013,” Woods said on Twitter.
The Players Championship, which is the PGA Tour's flagship event and widely regarded as golf's unofficial fifth major, will be played May 7-10.
Woods, who had struggled in his return from last year's back surgery, a swing change and some embarrassing moments with his short game, tied for 17th at the Masters at five under. – Reuters
