'We are excited for the City of Charlotte and for the patrons who have bought tickets,' Wachovia Championship Tournament Director Kym Hougham said Wednesday. 'To now have five of the top six players in the world coming to our tournament shows that a lot of hard work by all involved is paying off.'
The top player in the game, who won his second straight WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in February, will join a field that features reigning Masters champion Phil Mickelson, Davis Love III, Mike Weir and Shaun Micheel.
For Woods, it will be the first time the 28-year-old will compete in North Carolina since the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst where he tied for third.
Quail Hollow hosted the PGA Tour's Kemper Open from 1969 to 1979 and later went on to host a Champions Tour event.
This is the second year of the Wachovia Championship. David Toms captured the inaugural event last year by two strokes over Vijay Singh, Robert Gamez and Brent Geiberger.
