Tiger Woods will play in The Players Championship

We now know when Tiger Woods will play next. Woods announced Friday that he'll make his next start in two weeks at The Players Championship.

The 14-time major winner is a two-time Players champion, last winning the event in 2013. He didn't play last year as he recovered from March 31 microdiscectomy surgery on his back.

Woods said after the Masters that he would be taking some time off before returning, but did not indicate his next start. However, Woods traditionally has skipped Harbour Town and New Orleans. By not playing, Woods would not become eligible to compete in next week's WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship. The Players is the next logical event.

At the Masters, Woods finished T-17 in his first start two months after announcing Feb. 11 that he would take a break from competitive golf to get his game back in shape.
