Woods announced Wednesday he would be stepping away from the game because his play in his words basically isn’t up to par. But if you read a little deeper he has his sights set on a return at the Honda Classic at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach, Fla.

That’s later this month, beginning Feb. 26.

“The last two weeks have been very disappointing to me, especially Torrey, because I never want to withdraw,” Woods said.
