Tiger Woods is back! The PGA Tour legend announced on Twitter that he will be returning to play at the Memorial Tournament next week at Muirfield Golf Club.
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.— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) July 9, 2020
Woods was last seen on national television playing in The Match: Champions For Charity with Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady, and Peyton Manning. Woods and Manning teamed up to defeat Mickelson and Brady 1-up, after nearly blowing a three shot lead from the front nine.
Prior to that, Tiger appeared in two PGA Tour events this calendar year. He finished 68th at The Genesis Invitational and tied for ninth at the Farmers Insurance Open. He had withdrawn from the Masters due to back issues, but the postponement of it due to the Covid-19 pandemic opens the door for him to return to Augusta this fall.
The Tour is in Muirfield this week for a one-off tournament before next week’s bigger Memorial. Odds for next week’s tournament are not yet posted, but Woods is sure to be among the favorites given the betting public’s love for the golf legend.
