GREENSBORO, North Carolina (AP) — Tiger Woods will play the Wyndham Championship for the first time.
In an email to The Associated Press, agent Mark Steinberg confirmed that Woods will play in Greensboro this week.
That ends a few days of uncertainty around Sedgefield County Club, the site of the final tournament of golf’s regular season.
Woods created a stir by entering the field just ahead of the deadline.

SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Tiger Woods knows the concept of going through a transition, just not the numbers associated with this one.
His world ranking is No. 278. Throw out some of the past champions and the 20 club pros at the PGA Championship, and his ranking is the worst of all but two players at Whistling Straits — Nick Taylor and Darren Clarke.
He has not won a tournament in two years, and he has only one top 10 on the PGA Tour since.
And while his winless streak in the majors is at 23 dating to the 2008 U.S. Open, only once in the last six years has he gone into the final round within three shots or fewer of the lead. That was at Muirfield two years ago, and he closed with a 74 to finish five shots behind.
This is the new world of Woods at the majors. Expectations are lower than ever.

(Doug Ferguson/AP) — Tiger Woods took a pass on playing an opposite-field event this week in Nevada, meaning his season could end next week at the PGA Championship.
Or maybe not.
Woods floated the idea of playing the Wyndham Championship the week after the PGA Championship, which is the final regular PGA Tour event for players to get into the top 125 and qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs. Woods tied for 18th at the Quicken Loans National last week, though that was only enough for him to move up a whopping 12 spots to No. 185.
“Just win. It’s not real complicated,” Woods said of his playoff prospects “I’m not playing Reno this week or Bridgestone. ... By playing well in the PGA, that determines whether or not I’ll play Wyndham, and obviously the rest of the FedEx Cup playoffs.”
