Tiger Woods will compete on the PGA Tour for the first time in five months after committing to play the Memorial Tournament next week.

Woods has won the Memorial Tournament five times and will be hoping to clinch a record-breaking 83rd PGA Tour victory when he competes at Muirfield Village, having tied Sam Snead’s all-time best mark at the Zozo Championship back in October.

“I’m looking forward to playing in the @MemorialGolf next week,” the 15-time major champion posted on Twitter.

“I’ve missed going out and competing with the guys and can’t wait to get back out there.”

 

Woods has not featured on the tour since the Genesis Invitiational in February, with golf put on hold for three months during the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the 44-year-old was in action in May, teaming up with Peyton Manning and beating Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in The Match: Champions for Charity. The event helped raise over $20million to help with COVID-19 relief.

In addition to his five tournament wins, Woods has also finished in the top 10 a further four times – most recently in 2019 – and enjoyed Presidents Cup success at Muirfield Village.
