San Diego - Tiger Woods will be starting his season in San Diego.

Woods officially entered the Farmers Insurance Open on Wednesday, which has become the traditional start of his season since 2006. He has won the last five times he played Torrey Pines, including the 2008 U.S. Open in a playoff over Rocco Mediate.

He has not played the PGA Tour stop at Torrey Pines the last two years, missing in 2009 while recovering from knee surgery, and last year while dealing with personal problems related to his extramarital affairs.

He said on Twitter: "I've been working hard on my game, it's game time hooah!!"
