PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Tiger Woods is returning to competition at The Players Championship.
A PGA Tour official confirms that Woods has entered tournament, which starts Thursday. Woods won The Players in 2001, but it is the one tournament where he has finished out of the top 20 the most times.
Woods decided not to play the Wells Fargo Championship this week because of what he called a minor injury to his left knee from hitting a shot in the third round at the Masters. His coach, Sean Foley, says he has been walking in a protective boot.
