Report: Tiger Woods intended to play the Greenbrier Classic



Were it not an elbow injury that Tiger Woods re-aggravated at the U.S. Open at Merion, the world No. 1 would have been in the field this week at the Greenbrier Classic.

According to a Golf Channel report, tournament officials confirmed Woods was scheduled to play in the tournament for a second consecutive year.

Woods pulled out of last week's AT&T National, citing doctor's orders that he rest his ailing elbow before the Open Championship at Muirfield.



The injury, Woods says, originally occurred at The Players Championship, then hurt the left elbow again in a title defense at the Memorial Tournament.

Woods would have played in consecutive weeks, as he did last season. After winning the 2012 AT&T National, Woods shot even-par 140 to miss the cut at The Greenbrier in his lone appearance in the event.

In his last start, Woods finished T-32 at the U.S. Open.
