Woods adds to schedule in a bid to find form

Still marooned on 14 major titles and four short of Nicklaus's record, Tiger Woods has upped his workload in a bid to return to winning ways this season.

A win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill had promised a return to form, but subsequent dismal showings at Quail Hollow, the U.S. Masters and Players Championship have shown that the win at Bay Hill was a splutter rather than a spark.

To get over his slump, Woods has taken the next two weeks off but then hopes to be back with a bang and will take part in five of the next eight PGA Tour events, including a new one for the 36-year-old - The Greenbrier Classic to be played in July.

“We are pleased and excited to have one of the all-time greats in the game join The Greenbrier Classic’s 2012 field,” said Jim Justice, chairman and owner of The Greenbrier.

“Tiger is one of the biggest stars in all of sport and he brings significant attention to any event he enters. All involved with The Greenbrier Classic look forward to hosting Tiger on The Old White TPC Course as one of the professionals in this year’s field at America’s resort on America’s birthday.”

Previously Woods would work to a strict schedule of events leading up to majors, but it seems that the concern over his recent run of form means he needs wins under his belt again - the quicker the better.

"I'm excited about my schedule and looking forward to competing," said Woods, who will next head for the Memorial Tournament, hosted by Jack Nicklaus, which starts on May 31.
