Tiger Woods to return at Match Play Championship

Tiger Woods' bid to stretch his winning streak in US PGA Tour-sanctioned events will continue at the World Golf Championships World Match Play Championship, he said on his website.

Woods will next play at the WGC event that starts February 21 in Tucson, Arizona.

The PGA Tour stops here this week for the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which Woods historically has not entered.

After winning the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines last month, the world No. 1 was coy about the possibility of entering next week's Nissan Open in Los Angeles, saying he preferred to wait until he returned from the Dubai Desert Classic to decide.

Woods played in last week's European tour event in Dubai, finishing third behind South Africa Ernie Els and winner Henrik Stenson of Sweden.

Woods' current US tour streak is the second-longest in tour history, trailing only Byron Nelson's 11 in a row in 1945.

The streak started with a victory in the British Open in July, and Woods added victories in the Buick Open, PGA Championship, Bridgestone Invitational, Deutsche Bank Championship and American Express Championship last year before opening his 2007 season with the win at Torrey Pines.

However, Woods is not undefeated in that span.

He tied for ninth in the World Match Play Championship in England in September, was second in the HSBC Champions event in Shanghai in November, and was also runner-up in the Dunlop Phoenix tournament in Miyazaki, Japan, in November.
