Woods will play next three PGA Tour events

Tiger Woods announced on his web site Tuesday that he will play the next three PGA Tour events, starting next week.

First up is the World Golf Championships - Accenture Match Play Championship, a tournament which Woods has won three times. Currently ranked 18th in the world, Woods will likely be a No. 4 seed in that event, which seeds by players world ranking position.

Last year, Woods lost in the first round of the Match Play and he missed the event in 2010.

The following week Woods will play the Honda Classic for the first time since he was a teenager. Woods last played the Honda in 1993, when he posted rounds of 72-78 and missed the cut.

"I've heard great things about the Honda Classic, and now that I live here, I want to play whenever possible," Woods said in a statement on his web site. "Jack's [Nicklaus] involvement in the tournament and the benefits to the local community are also important."

Woods will then tee it up at the WGC - Cadillac Championship. He won that event at Doral six times between 1999-2007. Woods still owns the 36-, 54- and 72-hole scoring records at the TPC Blue Monster.

In two starts this year, Woods has posted a pair of top-15 finishes.

He shared third in Abu Dhabi after entering the final round tied for the lead. At Pebble Beach last weekend, Woods had three under-par rounds to open the tournament, then stumbled to a 75 in the final round to slide into a share of 15th place.

"I'm excited about my start and look forward to keep building," Woods added. "I've made great strides from last year and hopefully all my hard work will pay off with a victory soon."
