Woods officially enters PGA Championship
Friday, July 29, 2011
JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Tiger Woods already has missed two major championships this year. He doesn’t plan on missing the last one.
Woods has formally entered the PGA Championship, to be played Aug. 11-14 at Atlanta Athletic Club. He has been out of golf for nearly three months so that injuries to his left leg can properly heal. He will make his return next week in the World Golf Championship event at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.
PGA spokesman Julius Mason said Friday that Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, told him that as long as everything goes well at Firestone and there are no complications to his left leg, Woods intends to play the PGA.
Woods has failed to win the last nine majors he has played, one short of matching his longest drought.
