Tiger Woods is starting to fill out his schedule, now committing to three PGA Tour events in the next three months.

Woods announced Wednesday that he will play in the Farmers Insurance Open, played Jan. 26-29 at Torrey Pines’ two golf courses just outside of San Diego. Woods has won there eight times as a pro, including the 2008 U.S. Open, the last major he has won of the 14 in his career. The 79-time PGA Tour winner last played the event in 2015, withdrawing early in the now-infamous “glute activation” incident.

This will mark Woods’ first official PGA Tour start since finishing tied for 10th in the Wyndham Championship in August 2015.

Then, as previously announced, Woods will play in the Genesis Open, formerly the Northern Trust Open, at Riviera Country Club from Feb. 16-19. His tournament-management company runs the event, and Woods has historically played in those events. Woods made his PGA Tour debut there as an amateur 25 years ago, though he has one of his worst career records on the Pacific Palisades course, just outside of Los Angeles.

In the second commitment of the day, Woods also said he will play in the Honda Classic, which is played the week after the Genesis Open. PGA National hosts again, and the event is a home game for Woods, a short driver from his Jupiter Island, Fla., home.

On Thursday morning, Woods announced he would play in the European Tour’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic, the week after Torrey Pines. He has won the tournament in the past, and he could score a seven-figure appearance fee by participating. The addition means Woods will play four times in a five-week span, suggesting that the 41-year-old feels his thrice-operated back is up to the task of such a rigorous docket.

Three months after captaining the United States to Ryder Cup glory, Davis Love crashed back to earth, literally, breaking his collarbone in three places, Golf Channel reported on Thursday.

Love incurred the injury in a snowboarding accident in Idaho, Golf Channel said, and underwent surgery on Thursday.

It was the third major procedure in four years for Love, who previously had back and hip surgeries.

In October, Love was widely lauded for guiding the U.S. team to Ryder Cup victory over the Europe, after presiding over a losing effort four years before.

The 52-year-old American has won 21 PGA Tour events, including one major — the 1997 PGA Championship.

Love was scheduled to play next week’s Sony Open in Honolulu, but is now expected to be out of action for about three months.

The resurgence of Tigermania is real.

Tiger Woods has made just one start thus far in his return to golf, competing at last month’s Hero World Challenge (an unofficial event, too). But that hasn’t stopped people from betting on him for the 2017 Masters.

Not at all, actually.

As Forbes reports, Woods leads both ticket count and money wagered for the Masters at Las Vegas sportsbooks.

In particular, at Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, where Woods’s odds dropped from 40/1 to 20/1 following his 15th-place finish in the 18-man Hero World Challenge, 8 percent of Masters betting tickets are on him, with 11 percent of Masters money wagered going toward Woods bets.

The biggest wager on Woods thus far, according to Forbes, is a $1,000 ticket posted when Woods’s Masters odds were 50/1.

Woods’s 20/1 odds were tied for sixth-best at the time, with Jason Day the favorite at 8/1. Odds posted by sportsbook.ag now have Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy as co-favorites at 15/2, with Woods seventh at 22/1.

Woods has won the Masters four times, but his last green jacket came in 2005. The 41-year-old has finished in the top four at Augusta National six times since that 2005 win.
