Tiger Woods made official on Monday that he will defend his title later this month at the Farmers Insurance Open.

The tournament will be the No. 1-ranked player in the world's first event in 2014 and his first start as part of the 2013-14 season. He is scheduled to play the following week on the European Tour in Dubai.

Woods' victory a year ago at the Farmers was his seventh in the event played at Torrey Pines near San Diego, where he also won the 2008 U.S. Open. It was the first of five victories for Woods in the 2013 season.

Phil Mickelson is also scheduled to make his 2014 PGA Tour debut at Torrey Pines.
