Tiger Woods to return to PGA Tour next week at Memorial


The Memorial Tournament has made a decision to go without spectators next week at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.

The 44-year-old USA legend played and captained the triumphant United States team in last December's Presidents Cup in Australia but has made only two prior starts this year, sharing ninth at Torrey Pines in January and placing 68th at Riviera in February in his first chances to surpass Snead on the all-time win list.

"I've come back out, missed two of the three cuts, but, all in all, I feel like my game is really good", the Offaly man told The Golf Channel of his form after the restart.

Tiger Woods is returning to PGA Tour play.

Woods won the tournament for the first time in 1999, holding off Vijay Singh to claim his ninth PGA Tour title.

Alonso is the third-youngest world champion at 24 years, 59 days and fourth-youngest to win an F1 race at 22 years, 26 days. Over at Racer , F1 reporter Chris Medland says that Renault is set to announce Alonso's return to the team tomorrow.

This week's event, the first-ever Workday Charity Open, which is replacing the canceled John Deere Classic, will also take place at Muirfield Village, however it was never planned for spectators to be in attendance.

Woods has nine career top-10 finishes in 17 career starts at Muirfield Village, a course he said he enjoys for the layout and the ties to event host Jack Nicklaus.

Woods has played only three times this season on the PGA Tour, starting with his record-tying 82nd victory at the Zozo Championship in Japan.

He is now 41st in the FedEx Cup standings and 14th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Woods will be part of a loaded field that also includes World No 1 Rory McIlroy, five-times major champion Phil Mickelson, 2018 Memorial champion Bryson DeChambeau and major winners Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia.
