Woods won't play Match Play event in Tuscon next week

Looks like Stevie Williams was right after all.
Tiger Woods,
on indefinite leave from the PGA Tour since his Thanksgiving night
accident and subsequent admission of infidelities, will not be playing
the  WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in
Tuscon, Ariz., next week. Australia's The Herald Sunnewspaper
reported
that Woods would return to the PGA Tour at the Match Play Championship, and
this report circulated widely throughout the media. Woods's caddie
Williams last week denied Woods would play in the event.
Friday
afternoon was the deadline for entering the Match Play Championship.
Phil Mickelson announced last month that he would not play in the
event. The four No. 1 seeds in the 64-player match-play tournament are
Steve Stricker, Lee Westwood, Jim Furyk and Martin Kaymer.
