After two straight weeks of seeing Tiger Woods, golf fans will likely have to wait a while to see him again. According to his website, the U.S. Open and The National are the next two tournaments on the schedule. The U.S. Open runs from June 14 to June 17, giving Woods more than a month off unless he commits to another tournament.
The U.S. Open announced via a Twitter video that Woods will be teeing off at Shinnecock Hills.
Woods finished THE PLAYERS Championship with a remarkable final two rounds, including setting a personal record at TPC Sawgrass during Round 3. Heading into the final round of play, Woods had his doubts that he would be able to close the gap on leader Webb Simpson.
“I mean to be 8-under there through 12, realistically I probably could have got a couple more out of it and got to 10 for the day,” Woods told Golf.com. “…These guys are going to tear this place apart. I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody went lower than what I did today.”
Woods teed off with Jordan Spieth in one of the most anticipated groups of the final day. Woods started the week off with Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler. Woods was the only one of the group to make the cut as both Mickelson and Fowler disappointed.
