On Friday morning, Tiger Woods announced on Twitter that his next start will be at The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Verde Beach, Florida.

Earlier this year, he missed the final cut at the Waster Management Phoenix Open. As well, he withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open due to his previous injury. On February 11, he stated that he would take an indefinite break from golf.
Earlier this month, at the Masters, he tied for 17th place. Afterwards, he remained indecisive to when he would make his next start. Woods stated his next start would, “Not be for a while.” Though, he explained he has gotten his distance and will make his debut at The Palyers Championship.
