Woods commits to Wentworth return

    Woods will seek to fine-tune his matchplay skills at Wentworth
    Tiger Woods will play at the HSBC World Match Play Championship at Wentworth as a warm-up for the Ryder Cup.

    The event, which has a 1m first prize, takes place on 14-17 September, one week before the Ryder Cup in Ireland.

    Woods reached the final in his only appearance at Wentworth in 1998, but lost on the last green to Mark O'Meara.

    "The 36-hole match play format will be good preparation and we'll all be after confidence-boosting wins," said Woods, who qualifies as world number one.

    The 30-year-old American will return to England after the Ryder Cup to defend his American Express World Championship at The Grove near Watford.

    At the moment the only other certain starter in the 16-man field at Wentworth is defending champion Michael Campbell.

    Ten more will come from performances in the four majors, two more from five designated European Tour events and the final two from the European Order of Merit as of August 28.
