Tiger Woods Says He’s Committed to Play in Golf’s Frys.Com Open in October
Tiger Woods will play in the Frys.com Open in October at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, California, according to his website.
It will mark Woods’s first appearance at the event, scheduled for Oct. 6-9, and his first start in the U.S. since missing the 36-hole cut at this month’s PGA Championship.
The event is located about 40 miles south of Wood’s alma mater, Stanford University.
“I always enjoy competing in my home state, and this tournament fits my schedule perfectly,” Woods, 35, said on his website.
The 2010 Frys.com event was won by Rocco Mediate, whom Woods defeated in a playoff at the 2008 U.S. Open, his last major tournament victory
“Any time Rocco is in the field, it’s always fun,” Woods said.
The Frys.com Open is the second event of the U.S. PGA Tour’s four Fall Series tournaments.
Woods hasn’t won a tournament since November 2009. He’s fallen to No. 38 in the Official World Golf Ranking after holding the top spot for a record 281 weeks.
