Woods to add tour dates; still seeks caddie
After the fiascos at the Atlanta Athletic Club, where he missed the cut for only the third time in a major, Tiger Woods is seeking to add more PGA events to his schedule in his push to be part of the Presidents Cup team in Australia.

Having failed to qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs, the former No1 is not eligible to compete in a PGA Tour event until after the Tour Championship, which concludes Sept.25.

However he is keen for more competitive play, following the urgings of Team USA captain Fred Couples who insisted Woods would need more game time to warrant a wildcard captain's pick for the tournament that takes place in November.

"I might add another PGA Tour event to my schedule," Woods said. "Right now, I'm looking at my options."

He said on his website Monday that he might add a tournament in the Fall Series.

Beginning in Las Vegas at the end of September, the Series includes the Frys.com Open in San Martin, the McGladrey Classic in St. Simons Island and a tournament at Disney in October.

Woods got his first PGA Tour win at Las Vegas in 1996, he also won Disney later that year.

Woods is still yet to replace former long-time bagman Steve Williams.

Bryon Bell was used at Firestone and the PGA Championship, but it is thought unlikely he will be a long-term replacement.

"I haven't decided on a new caddie yet, but am definitely thinking about it a lot." Woods said. "There are a few guys I'm looking at, but it all depends on timing. At this point, I'm in no hurry to make a decision.

"What am I looking for? Two things: A person with a lot of experience, and a person I'll have fun with."

Woods dropped to No.36 in the Official World Golf Rankings yesterday, a continued free fall in form that sees him at his lowest ranking since November 1996.
