Tiger Wood Set To Compete At Next Memorial Tournament In Dublin

Tiger Woods will compete at next week’s Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, the 15-time Major champion’s first PGA Tour event in five months.

“I’m looking forward to playing in the @MemorialGolf next week,” Woods has tweeted. “I’ve missed going out and competing with the guys, and can’t wait to get back out there.”

Woods last competed on the PGA Tour in mid-February, when he laboured through a final-round 77 at the Genesis Invitational, where he finished last among players who made the cut.

Woods, who is one win shy of a record-breaking 83 PGA Tour victories, did play a May 24 charity match with Phil Mickelson, and Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

The Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village is one of the most high-profile, non-major events on the PGA Tour and Woods has triumphed there a record five times, most recently in 2012.

Woods will be part of a loaded field that also includes world No.1 Rory McIlroy, five-time Major champion Phil Mickelson, 2018 Memorial champion Bryson DeChambeau, and Major winners Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia.

The July 16-19 tournament was originally supposed to have a limited number of spectators, but earlier this week, the PGA Tour scrapped plans to let fans attend, due to COVID-19.
