April 24 (Bloomberg) -- Tiger Woods will skip next week’s U.S. PGA Tour event in Charlotte, a tournament he won in 2007 at the Quail Hollow Club.

Woods, who finished fourth at the Masters Tournament two weeks ago, typically takes three weeks off after golf’s first annual major. Due to a scheduling change, this year’s Charlotte tournament was moved up one week.

While Woods said on his website yesterday that he will play in the AT&T National tournament in June, an event that benefits his charitable foundation, he didn’t mention Charlotte.

Tournament spokesman Lee Patterson, citing Woods’s agent Mark Steinberg, confirmed in an e-mail that Woods won’t play next week.

The No. 1 player in the Official World Golf Ranking, Woods has missed the 36-hole cut the past two years in Charlotte, a tournament that attracts many of golf’s top players. Rory McIlroy, No. 2 to Woods in the ranking and the event’s 2010 winner, will play as will three-time Masters winner Phil Mickelson.
