" She said Gatorade would continue its relationship with the Tiger Woods Foundation.

KAPALUA, Hawaii - Tiger Woods is returning to the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for the first time in 10 years. Woods made it official Monday with an announcement on his website that he would start his PGA Tour season Feb. 9-12 at Pebble Beach, where he rallied from a 5-shot deficit in the final round to win in 2000 for his sixth consecutive PGA Tour victory. He is best associated with Pebble Beach for his record 15-shot victory in the U.S. Open later that year. The tournament sponsor is AT&T, which also sponsors the PGA Tour event that benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.

The first competitive round of a PGA Tour event in the Philadelphia area in eight years brought the fans out to Aronimink Golf Club, many of them eager to see Tiger Woods have a good round in his initial visit to these environs. Woods didn't do so well Thursday on the opening 18 of the AT&T National. Some other high-profile stars in the 120-player field struggled with the deep rough and difficult pin positions over the 7,237-yard Newtown Square layout. So it was up to two fairly recent PGA Tour winners ?

In 2007, when Tiger Woods hosted his first A T & T National at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., his team had less than 4 months to put the tournament together. In 2010 and 2011 the PGA Tour event will be moving to Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square. The preparations are already in motion. That's about the only thing that's different. "When we came to Washington we really had one simple thought, and that was to bring the Washington area the best tournament it had ever had," said Greg McLaughlin, the tournament director and president/CEO of the Tiger Woods Foundation.

BETHESDA, Md. - The head of the Tiger Woods Foundation still smiles broadly when asked about the contributions of the officials, staff and golf course at Aronimink Golf Club during the two years the Newtown Square facility hosted the AT&T National. And with the PGA Tour event founded by the world's No. 1 player entering the last two years of its contract with Congressional Country Club, it could find a home at Aronimink again. Greg McLaughlin, president and chief executive officer of the Tiger Woods Foundation, said Monday he has stayed in touch with Aronimink officials since the tournament left Delaware County and would love to return there if Congressional did not wish to renew its contract with the event.

Some other high-profile stars in the 120-player field struggled with the deep rough and difficult pin positions over the 7,237-yard Newtown Square layout. So it was up to two fairly recent PGA Tour winners - Nick Watney and Jason Day - and two relative unknowns - Arjun Atwal and Joe Ogilvie - to rule the day. All four carded 4-under-par 66s to take a step ahead of a pretty bunched pack.

It had been an emotional whirlwind for golf fans in the Philadelphia area over the last four months as they tried to guess whether Tiger Woods would participate at Aronimink Golf Club this summer in the AT&T National. After a year of high anticipation, Woods' highly publicized transgressions, which compelled AT&T to drop him as a national spokesman Dec. 31, resulted in the loss of his role as host of the PGA Tour event. Then as his family problems worsened, there was a possibility he might not play at all. But Wednesday, Woods put all doubts to rest, announcing on his Web site that he would indeed compete in the AT&T National, a tournament that benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation, on July 4 weekend at Aronimink, in Newtown Square.

Aronimink Golf Club president Paul Coady thought that hosting the AT&T National for two years was a "good experience" for his members and appreciated the nice comments from officials of the tournament founded by Tiger Woods. But as far as the possible return of the PGA Tour event to the Newtown Square course after it completes its contract with Congressional Country Club in 2014, it's a matter of: not so fast. Coady said Wednesday there have been no discussions with AT&T National officials.

BETHESDA, Md. - To Tiger Woods' way of thinking, people have short memories, as illustrated by the guy who asked him at Monday's AT&T National media day: "How will you know when you're back?" "Well, I won a tournament already," Woods said, sparking laughter from the audience at Congressional Country Club as he referred to his victory in March at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Woods' win - his seventh at Bay Hill - broke a PGA Tour drought that had stretched back to September of 2009, or shortly before the time his life started to unravel with revelations about his marital infidelity.

IN CASE YOU haven't been paying attention, the golf world, as a wise man once sang, is a-changing. The 2011 season is half-over. Tiger Woods has played nine holes in the last 11 weeks. Phil Mickelson is 41. Baby-faced Rory McIlroy, who is 22, just won the U.S. Open by eight shots, after blowing a four-stroke, 54-hole lead at the Masters in April. International players have won the last five majors, the last four by guys in their 20s. There are three Americans in the top 10 of the world rankings: No. 5 Steve Stricker, who is 44 years old himself, Mickelson (6)

In a decision that should hardly come as a surprise to anyone who has paid attention the last few months, Tiger Woods let it be known yesterday he will not play in next week's PGA Tour AT & T Tournament, which benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation, at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square. "Doctor's orders," Woods posted on Twitter. "I'll be sitting out . . . I will still be in Philly to support the event! Feeling stronger every day, but [still] not 100 percent. " He will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. Tuesday, after signing the "We Salute our Heroes" tribute wall on which fans may write personal messages to the U.S. military.

Tiger Woods ended all the speculation, and doubt, about whether he would be healthy enough to play in next week's AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club by announcing Wednesday that he will not compete. "Doctor's orders," Woods said in a Twitter post. "Feeling stronger every day, but not 100%. " Woods is recovering from a sprained medial collateral ligament and a mild left Achilles tendon strain, both suffered when he took an awkward stance and tried to hit a shot off pine straw in the third round of the Masters.

As much as Tiger Woods wanted to be healthy and ready to compete in the U.S. Open next week, he became increasingly concerned with how much additional time he would miss if he aggravated injuries to his left knee and his left Achilles tendon in the national championship. So he pulled out of the Open on Tuesday. As his Twitter post expressed it: "Short-term frustration for long-term gain. " But Woods did not provide a definition for short-term, which leaves his fans wondering if he will be able to play in the AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club, which begins June 30, just over three weeks away.

FOR ONE DAY, at least, Chase Utley's knee wasn't the most famous joint in town. The day after Utley returned to play second base for the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, Tiger Woods spent most of his 25-minute news conference yesterday answering questions about his famously injured left knee: its condition, its past, its future. Briefly: The knee hurts. There are no immediate plans for surgery or replacement. It might be ready for the U.S. Open. "I'm trying to hopefully get ready for the Open, and anything beyond that, I don't know," Woods said.
