Tiger Woods: Seven times a winner at Torrey Pines
Tiger Woods has confirmed he will open his 2013 PGA Tour campaign at the Farmers Insurance Open later this month.
Woods is a six-time winner of the tournament at Torrey Pines, where he also lifted the US Open title in 2008 - his 14th and most recent major victory.
He missed the event last year as he was committed to playing in the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship on the European Tour.
The world No 3 will again make his first appearance of the year in Abu Dhabi next week, which is being played a week earlier this season enabling Woods to tee up in San Diego.
Woods will headline a star-studded field in California which includes Phil Mickelson, Masters champion Bubba Watson and last year's winner Brandt Snedeker.
Woods' last appearance at Torrey Pines was in the 2011 season when he stumbled to a tie for 44th place - his worst finish in the tournament.
