Tiger Woods finishes 47th and confirms his return for the British Open | Golf News


AUGUSTA: Tiger Woods has kept one eye on history and another on his recovery as he has more or less confirmed that he will be back for the 150th Open Championship from July 14. And maybe the PGA Championships next month as well.
Speaking to Sky Sports after his final round in which he shot a second consecutive 78 to finish 47th, Woods said: “I will never play a full program again. These will only be the big events. I don’t know if I will be able to play (the PGA Championship) in Southern Hills or not, but I can’t wait to be in St. Andrews. It’s something close to my heart. You know, I won two Opens there, it’s the homeland of golf, it’s my favorite golf course.
There was no mention of plans for the US Open (June 16-19). St. Andrews has a special place in Woods’ hearts as he won his first Open at St. Andrews in 2000 to complete a career Grand Slam and won again in 2005. Woods also won at Southern Hills – the 2007 PGA Championship.
Working on a new swing set to fit his body, which is full of pins and metal screws as he recovers from injuries he sustained in a car crash in February 2021, this week was his first “real out since the November 2020 Masters. Speaking about the time during recovery, Woods said, “It’s tough. It’s hard. I have those days where I don’t want to do anything but… I had a great team that is super positive and motivated me. And this in turn gladdened the hearts of golf fans around the world.
