The 15-time primary awardee and three-time U.S. Open champion (Pebble Beach, 2000), Bethpage Black (2002), and Torrey Pines (2008) finished 47th in the Masters and cut in the PGA Championship before withdrawing after the third round in his only starts on 2022.

He stated that he previously informed the USGA that he would not be competing in the U.S. Open because his body needs more time to get more vital for significant championship golf.

He hopes and plans to be ready to play in Ireland at the (J.P, McManus Pro-Am) and at (The Open Championship) next month. He is excited to get back out there soon!”

Woods started to recover from a horrific, single-car rollover crash north of Los Angeles in February 2021 that severely damaged his right leg, ankle, and foot.

After finishing second alongside their son, Charlie, in the PNC Championship in December, Woods stunningly cut the Masters before laboring on the weekend and falling down the leaderboard in April.

In May, Woods looked strong in the early parts of the PGA Championship but struggled with his injuries in the second and notably in the third round. Woods is also facing the ramifications of five surgeries on his left knee and five surgeries, including spinal fusion, in his back.

 Woods has won three Open Championships, two at this year’s place, St. Andrews in Scotland, the Home of Golf. In 2000, Woods won by eight hits to become the teen player, at age 24, to win the career Grand Slam.

He also stated his second Open win at St. Andrews in 2005 when he won five hits. His 3rd Open championship came in 2006 when he was honored and awarded two at Royal Liverpool.
