Woods, a Buick endorser, has played in the event several times in the last few years, finishing tied for 11th last season, seven shots behind eventual champion Rocco Mediate.
The victory was Mediates first win since the 99 Phoenix Open, and upon hearing the news of Woods commitment, he seemed just fine.
There might be some players who would rather play in the tournaments that Tiger skips, but Im not one of them, Mediate announced at media day this Monday. I think most of the best players out there want to play against Tiger, because he lifts our games.
The Buick Open will be played from August 9th through 12th. It will be contested at the Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc, Mich.
