Tiger Woods At The 2015 Wyndham Championship( — Shortly after Tiger Woods announced he hoped to return to competitive golf next month at the Safeway Open in Napa, California, there was an outpouring of support from fellow and former players.

Tiger, whose last event was the 2015 Wyndham Championship where he tied for 10th, has been sidelined with back injuries and has undergone two surgeries and a follow-up procedure. His 79 PGA TOUR victories and 14 major titles rank second all-time to Sam Snead and Jack Nicklaus, respectively.

CARMEL, Indiana (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Out of golf for more than a year, Tiger Woods said he hopes to play the first event of the PGA Tour season next month and could play as much as twice more before the end of the year.

Woods said if his rehabilitation from back surgeries keeps going well, he would play the Safeway Open in Napa, California, on October 10-13.

GREENSBORO, North Carolina (AP) — There’s still plenty at stake at the Wyndham Championship this year — even if some of the big names from last year aren’t playing.

Tiger Woods didn’t return, sidelined by a back injury. And Davis Love III — a local favorite and three-time winner who had hip surgery last month — is only watching.

When play begins at Sedgefield Country Club, the field once again will be littered with players trying to force their way off the PGA Tour’s bubble in the final week of golf’s regular season and earn spots in the first round of the playoffs.

Tiger Woods withdrew from the PGA Championship, the first time he will go an entire year without playing a major.

The decision, while not a surprise, also means he will go an entire PGA Tour season without playing.

His agent, Mark Steinberg of Excel Sports Management, said in a text to The Associated Press on Tuesday that Woods will not play the remainder of the tour season as he continues to rehab following back surgeries. That would have amounted to only three more tournaments before the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

TROON, Scotland (AP) — Tiger Woods is out of the British Open, the first time he has sat out three majors in one year.

The R&A announcement that the 14-time major champion has withdrawn was not a surprise. Woods has not played in nearly a year as he recovers from two back operations. He has given little indication when he will be healthy enough to return.
