It was Woods' second win at this tournament in the last four years and fifth career title at the Memorial.

This year, Woods returns to the event coming off his fourth win already this season at The Players Championship three weeks ago. He will try to keep his red-hot season going by defending his title against a field that consists of 17 of the top 25 players in the world rankings.

Chinese teenager Tianlang Guan will return to the field this week on a special invitation after missing his first cut in three appearances on the PGA Tour at the Byron Nelson Championship.

Golf Channel has coverage the first two days and early on the weekend before handing off to CBS for Saturday's and Sunday's afternoon coverage.

The PGA Tour heads to Tennessee next week for the St. Jude Classic, where Dustin Johnson birdied two of his final three holes last year to take a 1- stroke victory over John Merrick.

EUROPEAN TOUR

NORDEA MASTERS, Bro Hof Slott Golf Course, Stockholm, Sweden - Lee Westwood was the lone member of the field to post four rounds in the 60s last year as he cruised to a 5-stroke victory and his 22nd European Tour title.

Westwood entered the final day of the tournament with a 3-stroke lead and his cushion never fell below two throughout the final round.

He will not be in the field this week to defend his title, though, as he will be participating at the Memorial with the PGA Tour.

Last year's second-place finisher Ross Fisher will return this year, as will last week's winner Matteo Manassero.

Golf Channel has full coverage of the action this week.

The European Tour heads to Austria next week for the Lyoness Open, where Bernd Wiesberger overcame a 4-stroke lead in the final round to capture his second career victory.

CHAMPIONS TOUR

PRICIPAL CHARITY CLASSIC, Wakonda Club, Des Moines, Iowa - Jay Haas carded a 5-under 66 during his final round last year to finish the tournament with a record-tying 16-under par 197 and earn his 16th Champions Tour title.

The mark gave him a 5-stroke victory over Kirk Triplett and Larry Mize despite Triplett's course record 9-under 62 on the final day.

It was Haas' third victory in six years at this event and he will be returning this week to defend his title.

Golf Channel will have coverage of all three rounds.

The Champions Tour moves to Alabama next week for the Champions Tour's second major of the season, the Regions Tradition, where Tom Lehman will seek to defend his title for the second straight year.

LPGA TOUR

SHOPRITE LPGA CLASSIC, Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club, Galloway, New Jersey - Stacy Lewis carried a 6-stroke lead into the final round and cruised to her second victory in three starts at this event last year.

Lewis essentially wrapped up the win during the first two rounds, when she carded back-to-back 6-under 65s.

Every tournament winner from this season will be in the field as well.

Golf Channel will have coverage of all three rounds of this 54-hole event.

The LPGA Tour will move to New York next week for the Wegmans LPGA Championship, which is the LPGA's second major of the season. Shanshan Feng became the first golfer, male or female, from mainland China to win a major championship there last year.

WEB.COM TOUR

MID-ATLANTIC CHAMPIONSHIP, TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, Potomac, Maryland - David Lingmerth rallied to his first career win on the Web.com Tour with a 4- under 66 during his final round last year.

He was one of just 11 players to break par in the final round and took advantage of third-round leader Josh Persons' 7-over 77 to nab the victory.

Lingmerth will not be in the field to defend his title as he has moved on to the PGA Tour.

Nine of the top 10 players on the money list will be participating in the tournament, however.

The Web.com Tour will have off next week before heading to Kansas for the Air Capital Classic, where Casey Wittenberg fired a 5-under 66 during his final round to capture his second title of the season.
