Tiger Woods returns to Honda Classic for 2013 at PGA National, expected to announce today

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Tiger Woods is back for more.

The golfer is expected to announce Tuesday that he'll be competing in the 2013 Honda Classic at PGA National.

ESPN 760 confirmed the details Monday evening.

Woods' announcement will be followed by a news conference from officials with the Honda Classic.

Woods competed in 2012 as well.

He says he likes playing in his "backyard" since he lives close-by in Jupiter.

Business owners say they like when he competes as well, because it brings a lot of money to the area.

According to tournament directors, 30% more people came to last year's Classic compared to the year before.

They add that's more than any other year.

The crowds also helped pump more than $30 million into the community.

Woods is just one of many others competing. Rory McIlroy confirmed he will be playing in the Classic as well.

The Honda Classic starts on February 25. You can watch it on NewsChannel 5.
