Tiger Woods plans to play at Quail Hollow Club

It looks like the Wells Fargo Championship is collecting stars again.

Sources close to Tiger Woods confirmed Tuesday that the 14-time major champion plans to play in the Wells Fargo Championship next month at Quail Hollow Club.

Woods has not officially committed to the event but is expected to make his participation official sometime after the Masters. Woods won the event in 2007 but missed the event last year because of an Achilles injury he suffered while playing in the Masters.

Players have until the Friday before an event to officially commit.

Also, 2010 Wells Fargo Championship winner Rory McIlroy confirmed he will play at Quail Hollow Club May 3-6. McIlroy had listed the Charlotte stop on his newly-launched website this week.

"Sure, of course," McIlroy said when asked Tuesday if will play at Quail Hollow.

Like Woods, McIlroy has not yet officially committed.

Phil Mickelson has indicated he plans to play at Quail Hollow as will Lee Westwood. World No. 1 Luke Donald does not plan to play in Charlotte, having bypassed the event in recent years.

hopefully he will change his mind

Ah yes, the ladies of the evening will be getting ready for him. But they might have a tough time collecting any money for servicing him. He is know to run away from his debts. Just ask Charles Barkley about that.

Why would you want him to change his mind? If he comes, the crowds come and the local economy has a nice positive impact. So again, why would you not want him to come to this event?

@Anonymous 4:20 - Why would you want him to change his mind? Tiger playing is good for the tournament. Go back to your little hole in the ground.

Retire this freak and get him out of the PGA. He has done enough damage to the game.

Good to see Lee Westwood committing in addition to Tiger. Can't wait to see another strong field at Quail Hollow again this year!
