Tiger Woods Commits to Play Memorial
Tiger Woods has committed to play in the Memorial Tournament next week.
It will be his first PGA Tour round since February.
“I’m looking forward to playing in the Memorial next week. I’ve missed going out and competing with the guys and can’t wait to get back out there,” Woods said in a tweet on Thursday morning.
Woods’ commit is not a huge surprise given that The Memorial is Jack Nicklaus’ tournament.
Woods’ Last Time Out
The last time we saw Woods was during the Champions for Charity match when he and Peyton Manning beat Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady.
How much stock can we put into how good Woods looked is up for debate, but it did appear the his ailing back was healthy enough to play and play well.
Prior to the shutdown, Woods last played a competitive golf round t the Genesis Invitational in February, where he finished in last place after making the cut.
Due to “back stiffness,” Woods then skipped the WGC-Mexico, the Honda Classic, the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Players.
