Tiger Woods will not play in Greenbrier Classic after Quicken Loans National

Tiger Woods won't be making it two events in a row after his comeback next week at the Quicken Loans National.

Greenbrier owner Jim Justice has confirmed Woods will not be playing in The Greenbrier Classic at the Old White TPC the week after making his PGA Tour return at Congressional C.C. in Bethesda, Md.

“He is going to play in his event (the tournament at Congressional donates money to the Tiger Woods Foundation), and then he’ll be off until the British Open,” said Justice to the Register-Herald. “Tiger loved The Greenbrier and had a great time, but the doctors are telling him he has to rest after playing an event if he’s going to try to make the British Open. And he has to play in his tournament.”

Woods has been on the disabled list since undergoing a microdiscectomy on March 31 to relieve back pain caused by a pinched nerve. Next week’s event will begin just shy of three months after the procedure.

Woods played at Greenbrier in 2012, missing the cut. He intended to play a year ago, but an injury suffered at the U.S. Open at Merion kept him out of action until the Open Championship in July.

The resort and tournament teased a "huge" announcement set for next week. What that announcement is remains unclear, but it's certain Woods' appearance is not the news.
