Tiger Woods commits to 1 PGA Tour event before Masters

Woods will defend his title at the Zozo Championship, which moves to a California course where he has won 5 times over the years

Committed: Tiger Woods, to play in the PGA Tour’s Zozo Championship next month at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif., he announced Wednesday on his Instagram account. Woods will be the defending champion in the event, which debuted last year in Japan. The Zozo Championship was moved to the U.S. because of international travel restrictions related to the global coronavirus pandemic. The tournament kept its original Oct. 22-25 dates. Woods claimed his PGA Tour record-tying 82nd victory last year in Japan, tying the late Sam Snead for the career mark. Woods has competed in only seven tournaments since that victory, with only one finish better than a T-37, when he tied for ninth in the Farmers Insurance Open in January. Woods, a Southern California native, should feel right at home at Sherwood Country Club. From 2000 to 2013, the Los Angeles-area course was the site of the World Challenge, an exhibition that benefits Woods’ foundation and that Woods has won five times. Woods missed the cut last week in the U.S. Open. The Zozo Championship likely will be the only time that Woods competes ahead of the Masters, which will be played Nov. 12-15 on the PGA Tour’s revised schedule. Woods will be the defending champion at Augusta National.
