Tiger’s US Open entry is in
Nobody is quite sure when a sulking Tiger Woods will next make an appearance, but he will play in the US Open.
Nobody is quite sure when a sulking Tiger Woods will next make an appearance, but he will play in the US Open at Pebble Beach Links at the end of June.
And that’s official.
It was learned on Monday that the US Golf Association (USGA) had received Woods’ entry to tee-off in the US Open on June 17 on the Northern Californian seaside course of Pebble Beach Links where he won his first US Open in 2000.
On that occasion he posted a 12-under par 272 to win by the eye-popping margin of 15 shots in an event that is widely regarded as the toughest major of them all…
The World No 1 has subsequently won two more US Opens, the first of these at Bethpage Black in 2002 and the other at Torrey Pines in 2008.
Woods’ love affair with Torrey Pines continues, for until his break from competitive golf after November’s string of sensational disclosures about extramarital affairs broke around his head, he almost always supported and often won at this iconic, cliff-side southern Californian course.
But you can’t say the same about Pebble Beach.
Since winning the US Open 10 years ago, he has seldom played there in recent years, partly it has been reported, because he does not enjoy the courses poa annuh greens
Woods, who finished a grumpy 4th at Augusta National, was reluctant to disclose where he would next play, saying he would first take another break in an attempt to sort out his wayward swing.
PGA Tour members have until the Friday in the week before each PGA Tour event to confirm their entries so where next Woods will play between now and the US Open is open to all kinds of speculation.
The general expectation is that it will either be at the Quail Hollow Championship starting on May 29 or the Player Championship on the following weekend.
Of the two, The Players Championship, widely regarded as the unofficial 5th major and set to be played six week’s prior to the US Open, looks most likely to host the next Tiger Woods return.
