The former world number 1 will play the Memorial Tournament from July 16, in his first presentation since last February.
Tiger Woods will compete again in the PGA Tour for the first time in five months by announcing that it will perform at the Memorial Tournament next week.
The former world number 1 won this event five times and hopes to achieve a record victory with his title No. 83 on the circuit, during his stay in Muirfield Village since Thursday, July 16.
“I am looking forward to playing at @MemorialGolf next week,” the 15-time Major tournament champion posted on his Twitter account. “I missed going out and competing with the boys and I can’t wait to go back,” he added.
The 44-year-old Californian has not played on the North American tour since his last time at the Genesis Invitiational, in February, also affected by the three-month suspension caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
However, Woods was in action in May with Peyton Manning in The Match, a charity event against COVID-19 in which $ 20 million was raised and disputed by pairs, in which he defeated Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady.
I’m looking forward to playing in the @MemorialGolf next week. I’ve missed going out and competing with the guys and can’t wait to get back out there.
