Tiger Woods confirmed for Deutsche Bank Open

Tiger Woods is set to play in Europe for the first time since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks when he defends his Deutsche Bank Open golf title in May in Germany, organizers said.

The world No. 1 ``isn't afraid of traveling now'' and will play at the May 17-20 tournament for a fourth straight year, said Nicolai Laude, a spokesman for organizer Fairway Marketing GmbH.

Citing security risks following the attacks, Woods, 25, pulled out of the Sept. 20-23 Lancome Trophy in Paris. That decision contributed towards the postponement of the following week's Ryder Cup until next year.

``It makes me happy I can give my confirmation,'' Woods said in a statement. ``I am already quite excited about seeing my fans and friends again in Germany.''

Woods may play in a 2002 European Tour event outside the continent like March's Dubai Desert Classic before the German tournament, Laude said. He last played in Europe at July's British Open.

Woods won the Deutsche Bank Open in 1999 and 2001 at the St. Leon-Rot course near Heidelberg which will host the event again next year. He finished behind Lee Westwood in 2000.
