(KGTV) - Golf star Tiger Woods announced that he will make his 2018 PGA Tour debut at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego later this month.

Woods confirmed on Twitter Thursday that he will play the Torrey Pines tournament at the Century Club, which begins Jan. 25. He also committed to playing the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, which starts Feb. 15.

The 42-year-old Woods' last official PGA Tour event was at last year's Farmers Insurance Open, but he did not make the cut.

Woods won the Farmers Insurance Open in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2013. He won his last major championship, the 2008 U.S. Open, at Torrey Pines.

Tournament officials said Woods is the tournament's all-time leading money winner, earning nearly $7 million in his 15 appearances.

Century Club of San Diego CEO Peter Ripa said of Woods' announcement: "Tiger shares a rich history with Torrey Pines Golf Course, and with The Farmers Insurance Open, in particular. We are excited to have him join our field once again, alongside some of the game's greats. His legacy already cemented, we look forward to, together with our fans, watching as Tiger writes the latest chapter of his storied career."
