— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) April 26, 2018
Tiger Woods is expected to return to competition at next week’s Wells Fargo Championship, according to multiple Golf Channel sources. The news of Woods’ participation was first reported Thursday on “Golf Central.”
Woods has until 5 p.m. ET Friday to officially commit to next week’s field. When reached for comment by Golf Channel , Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, explained that Woods’ plans were not yet finalized.
We don’t know right now (if Woods will play),” Steinberg said. “We’ll know later this afternoon. We’re working on a couple things.”
Woods has not played in this event since 2012.
MyGolfDaily.com sources said earlier this week that Woods representatives had been having conversations with the tournament officials and talks were continuing.
Woods normally waits till Friday just before the 5pm deadline to commit to an event and that seems to be the case with the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship.
Woods has played well at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, making six starts including a win in 2007 and two other top five finishes.
