*Add two more tournaments to Tiger Woods’s schedule: The Players Championship and the AT&T National, which benefits his foundation.
It was the second straight week that the golfer made an early commitment to a PGA Tour event after a sex scandal sidelined him for five months. For years, the world’s No. 1 player waited until the last few days before signing up.
Last week, Woods beat the deadline by eight days for entering the Quail Hollow Championship, which starts April 29. He signed up for The Players Championship, which starts May 6, nine days ahead of the deadline.
Woods no longer is the host of the AT&T National, which will be held over the Fourth of July weekend at Aronomink outside Philadelphia. It had been played the last three years at outside of Washington at Congressional, which will host the U.S. Open next year.
Woods’ first post-scandal tournament was earlier this month at the Masters, where he tied for fourth.
