(REUTERS) - World number one Tiger Woods will launch his 2014 campaign at one of his favourite venues, having committed on Monday to play in this month's Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, tournament organisers said.

Woods won the event there for a record seventh time last year, ending a week of mainly dominant golf by clinching his 75th PGA Tour title by four shots.

It was the third different PGA Tour event where he has achieved the feat, having previously piled up seven wins apiece at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Woods had been widely expected to officially commit to his title defence at the Jan 23 to 26 Farmers Insurance Open after being asked by reporters last month whether he expected to start the new season with more or less confidence than before.
