It isn’t terribly surprising, given that he’s the genial host of the event and he’s healthy this year, but Tiger Woods has confirmed that he’ll play in the AT&T National at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.
Woods, who won the tournament last year, announced the news last week on his website. This year’s tournament will be held June 27-30.
“I’m really looking forward to defending my title at the AT&T National,” Woods, presently ranked No. 1 in the world, said on his website. “The Washington, D.C., community has been so supportive of the tournament, and I’m excited to play Congressional Country Club.”
Woods, who said Tuesday that he’ll skip next week’s Wells Fargo tournament at Quail Hollow, isn’t expected to play again until May 9 at The Players.
