Though Tiger Woods' schedule is difficult to assume, he and Rory McIlroy will be opening their seasons together at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. Now the question is whether or not Woods will be playing the Torrey Pines event in San Diego, which he normally does extremely well at, or will he skip that like he is skipping the Famers Insurance Open?

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy committed to their first event of 2013 on Wednesday and, surprise, they'll be teeing it up at the same tournament, after Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship officials confirmed the top two players in the world would be starting the season in the Middle East Jan. 17-20.

"This will be the first time I have headed to Abu Dhabi as world number one, and I am determined to keep the wins coming and cement my ranking," McIlroy was quoted as saying on the tournament's website. "The strength of field means there will be a ton of world-ranking points on offer, so Abu Dhabi will be a really significant tournament that sets the tone for the year."
