WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Tiger Woods is heading to the hills this summer to play in The Greenbrier Classic.

Tournament organizers announced Monday that Woods had committed to play July 5-8 in the event, which began only two years ago.

It is played on The Old White TPC Course, where two years ago Stuart Appleby closed with a 59 to win. It will be the third time in the last nine months that Woods plays a tournament for the first time as a pro.

He played the Frys.com Open in October in San Martin, Calif., and the Honda Classic in March. Woods last played the Honda Classic as a teenager.

Phil Mickelson already has said he is returning to The Greenbrier, giving the 3-year-old event two of the biggest names in golf
