Tiger Woods to play in the Philly area this summer
NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. - April 21, 2010 (WPVI) -- Tiger Woods will be hitting the links in the Philadelphia area this summer.
According to a schedule posted on his website, Woods will be playing at the AT&T National at the Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square from July 1st to the 4th.
"I'm really looking forward to defending my title at the AT&T National. Philly is a great sports town, and I'm excited to play at Aronimink Golf Club," Woods said in a statement.
Woods no longer is the host of the AT&T National. It had been played the last three years at outside of Washington at Congressional, which will host the U.S. Open next year.
Woods's website also said he will play in The Players Championship, which will be held May 6-9 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
It seems Woods is filling out a schedule that is not much different from previous years. The only change is that Woods is giving tournaments a chance to promote his appearance.
This is the second straight time Woods has made an early commitment to an event. For years, the world's No. 1 player waited until the last day before signing up for most tournaments.
Woods missed five months while caught in a sex scandal before tying for fourth at the Masters in his return.
