Woods has participated in three PGS Tour events this year, Sports Illustrated noted, the most recent being the World Golf Championship-Mexico Championship, where he tied for 10th place.

Woods has won 14 majors in his illustrious career, but his last came back in 2008. Three weeks ago, at the Genesis Open at Riviera - a tournament he hosts - Woods finished tied for 15th. Now that he has unexpectedly lost a week, it sure does increase the chances of seeing him around here again this year if he is healthy.
