Tiger Woods heading for this year's Irish Open: rumours

Tiger Woods commits to 2018 British Open at Carnoustie

Woods, 42, returned to competitive action earlier this year after a two-year spell in which he played only occasionally due to long-standing back problems.

Woods confirmed Wednesday he will play in The Open this July at Carnoustie in Scotland.

"Carnoustie can be a brutal golf course and it was brutal that year [1999]".

A three-time victor of the Claret Jug, Woods last appearance in The Open Championship came in 2015 at St. Andrew's, when he failed to make the cut.

Dubai Duty Free's decision to commit to sponsoring the event for another four years was a major boost as it means there is a minimum prize fund of $7 million which makes it a highly appealing option for the top players in the game.

I won two of my Open Championships in Scotland and the other one in England, so let's try and add another one in there!
Woods turned in a solid top eight in strokes gained tee to green at the Wells Fargo Championship, and that will be important at TPC Sawgrass if he can do it again.

The American golf icon's performance in Valspar catapulted him to be named the joint favorite ahead of the 2018 Masters Tournament, but he failed to live up to the inflated expectations finishing T32.

Woods made the turn at even par, Mickelson at two over and Fowler at one under.

"I wouldn't say it's gravy, but it's unbelievable", Woods said.

Speaking previous year, Woods, a three-time Open victor in 2000, 2005 and 2006, made clear his desire to return to the Angus links course that he has enjoyed some testing battles with in the past. On Friday, he starts at 8:27 a.m. EDT on the 10th tee.
