Tiger Woods heads back to sands of Pebble Beach
Florida (US): Tiger Woods is returning to the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for the first time in ten years.
According to the Herald Sun, Woods made it official overnight with an announcement on his website that he would start his PGA Tour season on February 9 at Pebble Beach - the place where he rallied from a five-shot deficit in the final round to win in 2000 for his sixth consecutive PGA Tour victory.
Later that year he claimed his record 15-shot victory in the US Open.
The tournament sponsor is US telecom AT and T, which also sponsors the PGA Tour event that benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.
Woods, who won his Chevron World Challenge last month in California, first will play January 26-29 in Abu Dhabi.
