Tiger Woods is taking the next two weeks off and then is expected to play five of the next eight PGA TOUR events, including a new one on his schedule, The Greenbrier Classic.
The third-year tournament announced Woods’ commitment in a press release on Monday. According to the schedule on his website, Woods will play the Memorial Tournament, U.S. Open, AT&T National, The Greenbrier Classic, British Open and World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
Woods is coming off a disappointing two-week stretch where he missed the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship and tied for 40th at THE PLAYERS Championship. Woods also tied for 40th at the Masters, two weeks after breaking a 30-month victory drought at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard.
“We are pleased and excited to have one of the all-time greats in the game join The Greenbrier Classic’s 2012 field,” said Jim Justice, chairman and owner of The Greenbrier. “Tiger is one of the biggest stars in all of sport and he brings significant attention to any event he enters. All involved with The Greenbrier Classic look forward to hosting Tiger on The Old White TPC Course as one of the professionals in this year’s field at America’s resort on America’s birthday.”
The Greenbrier Classic will be held July 2-8 at the Old White TPC Course at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va.
