LONDON – Tiger Woods will play in the HSBC Champions in Shanghai in November.

It will be Woods’ fourth visit to the Sheshan International Golf Club. He was the runner-up in 2005 and 2006, and then finished sixth last year behind winner Phil Mickelson.

Woods confirmed in a statement through his sponsors on Monday that he would play in the World Golf Championship event from Nov. 4-7.

He says the tournament “will play a very significant role in developing the game of golf in Asia and around the globe.”

Although the event was originally devised for tournament winners, Woods has yet to record a victory in 2010. The world’s No. 1 player qualifies by being ranked inside the top 25.

Mickelson has confirmed he will be returning to defend his title.
