Tiger Woods to play Wells Fargo and Players Championship in May

This makes two back-to-back appearances in May for Woods in May, as the golfer also announced Thursday that he will be playing in next weekend's Wells Fargo Championship.

Same goes for The Players Championship, the PGA Tour's signature event. He has until 5 p.m. ET Friday to officially commit to the tournament set to start Thursday, May 3, in Charlotte N.C.

Tickets are on sale for the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club. This year, he earned a spot in the best field in golf due to the five-year exemption that exists for past champions of the event. Woods has won the event once previously, in 2007, but has not played in it since 2012. His best finishes have been a tie for second in the Valspar Championship and a tie for fifth in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Since he played in the Masters, Woods has returned to the gym and the golf course for extended practice sessions. He is now listed at No. 91 in the world golf ranking.
