Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORT -

TIGER WOODS of­fi­cially signed up yes­ter­day for the Safe­way Open next week in Cal­i­for­nia, his first tour­na­ment in more than a year.

Woods last played in Au­gust 2015 at the Wyn­d­ham Cham­pi­onship be­fore hav­ing two more back op­er­a­tions. He had said last month his plan was to ease back into com­pe­ti­tion with the Safe­way Open, the Turk­ish Air­lines Open and his Hero World Chal­lenge in The Ba­hamas at the end of the year.

Woods had un­til yes­ter­day af­ter­noon to com­mit to the Safe­way Open, which starts Thurs­day at Sil­ver­ado Re­sort in Napa, Cal­i­for­nia.

He has plunged to num­ber 767 in the world rank­ing and has not won the Bridge­stone In­vi­ta­tional in 2013. That was the 79th of his PGA Tour ca­reer, three short of Sam Snead’s record.
