Tiger adds Memorial to schedule as US Open warm-up

Golf News

After a return to form of sorts at The Players Championship, Tiger Woods sets his sights back on the majors

Tiger Woods will play at The Memorial Tournament ahead of the US Open.

Then it’s on to Maryland for The National before heading over the Atlantic for The Open at Carnoustie.

It will be Woods’ 20th appearance at golf’s oldest major and he will be bidding to win his fourth Claret Jug, having lifted it in 2000 and 2005 at St Andrews, as well as Hoylake in 2006.

In his previous visits to Carnoustie, in 1999 and 2007 respectively, he finished in a tie for 7th and 12th respectively.

Tiger Woods 2018 schedule: The year so far

After finishing in a tie for 23rd at Torrey Pines, Woods went on a fine run that included a 12th at the Honda Classic before top-5 finishes at the Valspar and Arnold Palmer Invitational. His only blip came with a missed cut at the Genesis Open.

He then finished T32 in his first appearance at The Masters since 2015 before a disappointing T55 showing at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Woods improved at The Players Championship with a tie for 11th and we will next see him at the Memorial Tournament, where he has won five times.

2018 marks the last of Woods’ 10-year exemption at the US Open, meaning from next year the 2008 champion will have to find another way in.

The Open offers exemption to past champions up to the age of 60, while the PGA Championship and The Masters offer lifetime entry.
