Tiger Woods’ appearance at last year’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am was a one-and-done, it was reported Monday.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Woods will not return to next week’s event after playing it last year for the first time in a decade.

“Much to our disappointment, Tiger will not be playing in the AT&T this year,” tournament director Steve John wrote in an email to the newspaper.

Last year, Woods got himself into the penultimate pairing on Sunday afternoon, only to shoot a final-round 3-over 75 to finish in a share of 15th place. As if to rub it in, playing partner Phil Mickelson posted a score 11 shots better to win the tournament.

The decision shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. When Woods competed in last year’s AT&T, he had skipped the Farmers Insurance Open. With that back on his schedule this year, he was expected to skip the festivities at Pebble Beach.
