Tiger Woods is heading back to Charlotte.

The 2007 Wells Fargo Championship winner has committed play in next week's Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club. Although Woods hasn’t won on the PGA Tour since 2013, he still draws crowds and drives TV ratings.

“Obviously we are excited to have Tiger coming back to compete in our tournament but to also have him healthy and competing on the PGA Tour this year,” tournament director Gary Sobba said in a statement. “His win here in 2007 was one of the memorable moments in our tournament history.”

The winner of 79 PGA Tour titles, Woods will return to Quail Hollow Club for the first time since 2012. In six Charlotte starts, he has finished third (2004), 11th (2005), fourth (2009) and missed the cut in 2010 and 2012. Woods' win at the Wells Fargo was his first – and only – win in North Carolina.

Woods, who has 14 major tournament titles, is one of six past Wells Fargo champions who have won major championships during their career. David Toms, Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk, Rory McIlroy and Lucas Glover are the others.

Players have until April 27 at 5 p.m. to commit to the Wells Fargo Championship. 

Tickets are on sale online and Dick’s Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy locations.
