Tiger Woods will skip Wells Fargo tournament

Tiger Woods will skip a tournament he usually plays next week, but don’t read too much into that. It probably has nothing to do with Lindsey Vonn. Or that drop that nearly resulted in a disqualification in the Masters a little over a week ago.

Woods typically takes three weeks off after the Masters and, because it fell a little later than usual on the calendar this year, there’s only two weeks between it and the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. Consequently, as his agent confirmed to the Associated Press, he’ll sit out the Wells Fargo.

That means he isn’t likely again until The Players on May 9.
