15-time Major champion Tiger Woods will make his long-awaited return to the PGA Tour at next week’s Memorial Tournament in Ohio.
In Woods’ first appearance since the Tour’s resumption last month, the 44-year-old will be eying a sixth event victory after claiming his fifth and final win back in 2012.
Woods last competed during the peak period of the Covid-19 pandemic when he participated in The Match: Champions for Charity alongside Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.
A victory at Muirfield Village Golf Club, where this week’s Workday Charity Open is also staged, will put Woods ahead on the all-time list for most wins on the PGA Tour.
With 82 victories under the belt, Woods is currently tied for first with Sam Snead. He will certainly be hoping to kick on from the success he achieved last year when he won the Masters for a fifth time and captained the USA team to a narrow victory in the Presidents Cup in Melbourne.
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.
