Woods to return to Quail Hollow

Tiger Woods will try to bounce back from a disappointing Masters at the US PGA Tour's Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow May 3-6, organizers said Wednesday.

Woods won the tournament in 2007, but didn't play there last year as he recovered from leg injuries.

The last time Woods played at Quail Hollow was in 2010, when he posted the highest 36-hole total of his career, 153, and missed the cut.

Woods is enduring an up-and-down 2012 season. He withdrew in the final round at Doral with a sore Achilles tendon, then won at Bay Hill to claim his first PGA Tour title in more than two years.

That victory sent him into the Masters on a high, but he finished tied for 40th at Augusta National.

Woods has also committed to playing The Players Championship the week after Quail Hollow.

First, however, he said on his website Wednesday that he would take a brief break.

"I'm going to take some time off and not look at the clubs for a while, and then get back after it," Woods said, adding that he would then get down to work with coach Sean Foley.

"I know what to work on. It's just a matter of getting out there and doing it. Just putting in the reps and the time. I just wasn't able to do it at the Masters."

Woods also acknowledged that he was wrong to let his frustration at Augusta boil over. He came in for some sharp critcism after kicking his nine-iron after an errant tee shot at 16 in the second round.

"One thing I would like to say about the Masters last week is that obviously I got frustrated at times and know some of my actions were wrong, especially at No. 16," he said.

"The Masters means a lot to me, and I was trying as hard as I could. I'm out there competing. I grind every day, and my expectations are to do my best. It's very disappointing when that doesn't happen."

Masters champion Bubba Watson is also slated to play Quail Hollow, along with fellow top 10 players Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood and Hunter Mahan.

"It is always great to have our champions come back and we are glad Tiger will join this group and return to Charlotte," said Wells Fargo Championship Executive Director Kym Hougham.
