Woods, 47 years old, is a two time Players champion (2001 and 2013) and has also won three consecutive U.S. records. Amateur titles at TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course. He has made 18 appearances at Players in his career. His most recent appearance was in 2019, weeks after he won his 15 th major at The Masters.

Woods is still eligible to play in the Players tournament next year, thanks to a five-year exemption after winning the Masters. Woods had until Friday at 5 p.m. to sign up for the tournament.

Woods was T-45 at February’s Genesis Invitational, his first official start since July’s 150 th British Open. Woods has maintained his focus on the majors since being in a single car accident in February 2021, which required multiple surgeries to his right leg, ankle and left leg.

He stated that his intention was to get all four majors last year. However, he only got three. “I hope to get all four majors this year and maybe a few more here and there. That’s all for the rest. That’s what I know and understand. This is just my reality.

Woods’ decision to skip the Players shows that he prefers rest to reps and won’t be making another start until the Masters, which starts on April 6.
