Hey, Tiger fans.
Your man has confirmed that he’s playing before the US Open in three weeks’ time.
The 15-time major champion announced on Twitter this afternoon that he intends to play in next week’s Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village.
It will be the only event that Woods plays prior to the US Open, which gets underway at Pebble Beach on June 13. The world No.6 didn’t play at all between winning the Masters in April and pegging it up at Bethpage for the US PGA.
Woods is a five-time winner of the Memorial. He only had one major to his name when he won the tournament for the first time in 1999.
That was the first of three successive wins in the tournament. He got his hands on the trophy again in 2009, pipping Jim Furyk to the title, before claiming it again in 2012.
Woods needs only one more PGA Tour title to tie Sam Snead’s record haul of 82 wins.
He finished in a tie for 23rd at the Memorial last year.
