After a grueling stint in the US Masters, Tiger Woods is bent on having a long break.

He will have a three-week long vacation, thus he will miss the Wells Fargo Championship next week.

Asked about Woods not playing Quail Hollow this year, agent Mark Steinberg replied in an email, ”Accurate.”

The 37-year-old Woods is expected to return for The Players Championship next month.

As has been his usual schedule, Woods typically takes three weeks off after the year’s first major. Because of a change in scheduling this year, the Wells Fargo Championship is only two weeks after the Masters.

Woods, who ruled Quail Hollow in 2007, has missed the cut the last two times he played, in 2010 and 2012. He missed in 2011 trying to recover from leg injuries. Before the two missed cuts, his worst finish had been a tie for 11th.

Leading the strong field in The Wells Fargo Championship are Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson.

Woods reclaimed the No. 1 world ranking on March 25, one day after winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational. This week marks the 628th week of his career atop those standings.
