JUPITER, Florida (AP) — The rowdiest event on the PGA Tour landed golf’s biggest attraction when Tiger Woods said he would play the Phoenix Open for the first time in 14 years.

The tournament starts January 29, 2015, and ends on the Sunday of the Super Bowl, which also is in Phoenix.

Woods also announced on his website he will play the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines a week later. That was no surprise, for Woods has won there eight times as a pro, including his last major in the 2008 U.S. Open.
