ORLANDO, Fla. -- Tiger Woods shoots for his fourth PGA Tour victory of the year next week in the $5.1 million Buick Open at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club in Grand Blanc, Mich. A two-time winner of the event (2002, '06), Woods officially committed Thursday.
"I'm looking forward to it," said Woods, who also owns two runner-up finishes in the tournament. "The golf course suits my eye, and the spectators are always enthusiastic."
In 10 starts, Woods leads the PGA Tour in money earnings with $4.5 million and also ranks first in scoring (68.36) and top-10 finishes (eight). He's also second in FedExCup points.
Woods missed the cut by one stroke last week at The Open Championship, snapping a streak of eight consecutive top-10 finishes this year in stroke-play events. It marked only the second time in his professional career that he has missed the cut in a major championship and just the fifth time overall.
"Just need to clean up my rounds," Woods said. "Hopefully, I'll get back on track next week."
