Golf: Tiger to play Fall Series

Associated Press
NORTON, Mass. — Tiger Woods will play the Frys.com Open in California the first week of October, his first time competing in the PGA Tour’s Fall Series as he tries to get his game ready for the Presidents Cup.
The Frys.com Open is Oct. 6-9 at CordeValle Golf Club, about 45 minutes south of his alma mater at Stanford.
“I always enjoy competing in my home state, and this tournament fits my schedule perfectly,” Woods said Monday on his website. “I’m looking forward to seeing some old friends.”
Woods said a week ago he might add a tournament because of his limited schedule this year brought on by leg injuries. He chose a tournament from the Fall Series that he has never played.
The Frys.com Open, in only its fifth year, was one of the more exciting tournaments of the Fall Series last year. Rocco Mediate holed out for eagle in each of the four rounds, including the 17th hole in the final round, for a one-shot win. It also offers a $5 million purse.
“One of my goals this year was to participate in a tournament I hadn’t played before,” he said.
Woods has played only eight PGA Tour events this year because of injuries to his left knee and Achilles’ tendon. He went four months without completing a tournament — from the Masters in April to the Bridgestone Invitational in August — so he could make sure his injuries were fully healed. He said at Firestone that his leg felt as good as it had in years.
