Tiger Woods Set To Miss Wells Fargo Championship
Tiger Wood’s agent has announced that he won’t be contesting in the upcoming Wells Fargo Championship.
The championship, set to take place at Quail Hollow Club, will feature many top golfers but without the inclusion of the world number 1 – Tiger Woods as he seeks an extended break after the Masters.
Tiger Woods usually gives himself a three week break after the first major of the year to recuperate; however there’s been a slight change in scheduling for this year’s event meaning that it’s only two weeks left after the Masters as opposed to three. Woods’s agent, Mark Steinberg explained that “Tiger has tremendous respect for Johnny Harris, Kym Hougham and the tournament but the tour schedule is the overriding factor this year.”
Only the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and the RBC Heritage will take place during the time period between Masters and the Wells Fargo Championship. Steinberg continued to say that Tiger Woods only recently made the decision to drop out of the Wells Fargo Championship.
“He had been looking at it for a bit and, post-Masters, he finally got his head around it.”
Woods was victorious at Quail Hollow six years ago, but he has failed to make the cut on the last two occasions – in 2010 and 2012. A leg injury however, ruled him out of the 2011 championship.
Defending champion Rickie Fowler, along with Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Nick Watney, Hunter Mahan, Zach Johnson, Webb Simpson, Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson and Lee Westwood will all be in the field for this year’s much anticipated Wells Fargo Championship. World No. 2 Rory McIlroy is a clear favourite for the odds makers; however websites like http://freebets.com can help you get some great deals for the latest PGA Tour event in North Carolina.
