PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) The 64-man field at the Match Play Championship does not include Tiger Woods.
Woods did not meet the deadline Friday afternoon for entering the Match Play Championship next week in Arizona, the tournament where he made his comeback a year ago from knee surgery.
The world's No. 1 player announced Dec. 11 he was taking an indefinite break from golf as he tries to salvage his marriage after admitting to infidelity. He has not been heard from since then.
Phil Mickelson already has said he won't be playing the Match Play because of a family holiday that previously was postponed due to his wife's treatment for breast cancer.
The tournament starts Wednesday at Dove Mountain just north of Tucson, with Steve Stricker as the No. 1 seed.
