Tiger to skip Pebble Beach Pro-Am again

Tiger Woods has had some of his greatest moments at Pebble Beach. He came from seven shots behind with seven holes to go to win the 2000 Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, and later that summer won the U.S. Open by a record 15 shots with the lowest score ever in relation to par at a U.S. Open (12-under).

But it could be a while before he returns.

Woods said he was skipping the AT&T for the second straight year because of the bumpy, poa annua greens in early February.

``You walk off the golf course saying you can never make a 1-foot putt,'' he said.

Woods says his confidence on the greens is shot for weeks after Pebble Beach. Instead, he will take a four-week break after this week and return at the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines, where he is the defending champion.

Woods also is expected to play the Nissan Open and Accenture Match Play Championship.

Asked if he would ever return to the AT&T Pro-Am, Woods replied, ``That depends on the greens.''
