Tiger Woods Joins Excel Sports Management

Tiger Woods has agreed to join Excel Sports Management, the company announced Monday.

Woods follows his agent Mark Steinberg who joined Excel after more than a ten years working for sports agency IMG.

"After meeting with a number of agencies and businesses, I decided Excel was the perfect fit," Steinberg said in a statement.

Woods has already announced that he will miss this week’s British Open at Sandwich, England due to a persistent leg injury. A three time former champion of the event, Woods has not played since mid-May because of the problems.

“Unfortunately, I’ve been advised that I should not play in the British Open,” Woods said on his official website. “As I stated at the AT&T National, I am only going to come back when I’m 100% ready as I do not want to risk further injury.”

The injuries to his left knee and left Achilles tendon occurred during the Masters in April. He attempted to compete in May’s Players Championship in Florida but a recurrence of the pain saw him pull out after the ninth hole.

"In hindsight, I probably shouldn't have competed at the Players but it's a big event, and I wanted to be there to support the PGA Tour," Woods added. "I've got to learn from what I did there and do it right this time and not come back until I'm ready.

"I think my best years are still ahead of me, and I'm very confident and optimistic about the future," he said.

Woods was recently voted the second greatest golfer over the last 100 years by readers of Golf Monthly magazine. Jack Nicklaus topped the poll and Seve Ballesteros, who recently passed away, came third.
