CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Tiger Woods is sticking to his long break after the Masters, meaning he will miss the Wells Fargo Championship next week.

Asked about Woods not playing Quail Hollow this year, agent Mark Steinberg replied in an email, "Accurate."

Woods typically takes three weeks off after the year's first major. Because of a change in scheduling this year, the Wells Fargo Championship is only two weeks after the Masters.

Woods won at Quail Hollow in 2007. He has missed the cut the last two times he played, in 2010 and 2012. He missed in 2011 trying to recover from leg injuries. Before the two missed cuts, his worst finish had been a tie for 11th.

The Wells Fargo Championship still has a strong field, featuring Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson.
