He made his comeback at the Masters in April of last year. Afterwards, he participated in the PGA Championship in May, but withdrew, and suffered a cut-off at the British Open in July.
Woods is not showing the same overwhelming prowess as in his past. He competed at the Genesis Invitational last February, but finished tied for 45th.
Woods, whose physical condition is not perfect, expressed the view that he wanted to focus on major tournaments rather than the PGA tour.
Woods is expected to compete in the Masters, which opens on April 6.
