KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) -- Tiger Woods is returning to the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for the first time in 10 years.

Woods made it official Monday with an announcement on his website that he would start his PGA Tour season Feb. 9-12 at Pebble Beach, where he rallied from a five-shot deficit in the final round to win in 2000 for his sixth consecutive PGA Tour victory. He is best associated with Pebble Beach for his record 15-shot victory in the U.S. Open later that year.

The tournament sponsor is AT&T, which also sponsors the PGA Tour event that benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.

Woods, who won his Chevron World Challenge last month in California, first will play Jan. 26-29 in Abu Dhabi.

He says Pebble Beach might be the prettiest place on earth.
