Tiger files official entry for Open
Tiger Woods on Tuesday confirmed his intention to play in The Open at St Andrews by officially filing an entry form.
Tiger Woods on Tuesday filed his entry for The Open in July and so will try to win at St Andrews for the third time in a row.
The world number one won by a massive eight shots in 2000, just a month after a major record 15-stroke victory in the US Open at Pebble Beach, and then returned to the Home of Golf in 2005 and won by five.
Woods has still to announce when he will next appear after withdrawing from The Players Championship in Florida seven holes into his final round nine days ago.
A scan revealed that he was suffering from an inflamed facet joint and he said: “I now need to take care of this condition and will return to playing golf when I’m physically able.”
He is expected to be fit enough to defend his Memorial title in Ohio on June 3-6 and two weeks later comes the US Open back at Pebble Beach.
