Tiger Woods has committed to next week’s WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Marana, Ariz., according to his website, www.TigerWoods.com.
Woods won the event in 2003, 2004 and 2008.
Ian Poulter is the defending champion after a 4-and-2 victory against Paul Casey in 2010.
Woods won his titles at La Costa Resort in 2003 and 2004 (David Toms, 2 and 1; Davis Love III, 3 and 2), and he beat Stewart Cink, 8 and 7, at Dove Mountain in 2008.
Woods skipped last year’s Match Play and was ousted by Tim Clark in the second round of the 2009 tournament.
Woods finished T-20 at the Dubai Desert Classic last weekend.
