After a somewhat disappointing Masters performance (1-over, T-32), Woods said he'll put the clubs away for a while after a grueling schedule building up to Augusta.
"I am excited to get again on the market", he added on his website.
"And I peaked at it four times [in his victories] over the course of my career, and it's tiring".
Even before Woods's reported commitment, the Wells Fargo field already had a strong field comprised of big names such as Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and Phil Mickelson. Woods hasn't played more than 11 tournaments since 2013 which would make 2018 quite historic.
Ten equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and eighteen have given a buy rating to the company. The sale was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available through the SEC website .
