Tiger Woods has firmed up his upcoming playing plans by committing to five tournaments: the US Open, British Open, Memorial tournament, Greenbrier Classic and Quicken Loans National.

Woods, who returned to competitive golf earlier this month at the Masters after taking two months off, has previously said he will compete in next week’s Players Championship.

Four of the events Woods has committed to are old favourites of his. The former world number one Woods is a five-time winner of the Memorial, hosted by Jack Nicklaus, which will be played from June 4th-7th at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.

Second Captains

Three-time US Open winner Woods will play in the 115th edition of the championship from June 18th-21st at Chambers Bay in Washington, on the Puget Sound shore.

Woods will be making his second appearance at the Greenbrier Classic in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, from July 2nd-5th. He missed the cut in his only previous visit in 2012.

The 39-year-old American will return to his favourite course in golf, The Old Course at St Andrews for the July 16th-19th British Open where he will seek a third Claret Jug at the venue to add to the 2006 title he won at Royal Liverpool.

The last of the added events is especially meaningful to Woods as the July 30th-August 2nd Quicken Loans National at Robert Trent Jones GC, in Gainesville, Virginia, benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation. Woods won the tournament in 2009 and 2012.
