Finchem asks Woods to play more again


THOUSAND OAKS, Calf. – Among a litany of questions on Tuesday at his Chevron World Challenge, Tiger Woods was asked about the potential of adding an extra event to his 2011 PGA Tour schedule, a reaction of sorts to a policy that was recently shelved by the circuit that would have required top players add a wanting tournament to their dockets.

The short answer, probably not. Woods referred to his “new living environment” in south Florida and his ongoing desire to remain competitive at the game’s biggest events – a goal that has not been mutually exclusive to more events.

Woods was also asked if Tour commissioner Tim Finchem had talked to him about adding to his schedule? “He’s done that every year,” Woods smiled. “That subject hasn’t changed.”

It worth pointing out that Woods has played 20 events or more just once since 2001, and no more than 17 since 2005. After the majors (four), World Golf Championships (three), invitationals (two), The Players Championship and Tour Championship that doesn’t leave a lot of room for the Reno-Tahoe Opens of the golf world.
