Tiger Woods confirms entry for 147th Open Championship

Tiger Woods confirms he will play in The Open at Carnoustie

The 42-year-old did not take part in a single major in 2016 and 2017 due to a back injury, but made the cut at the Masters earlier this year, finishing tied for 32nd. At one point, he suggested that he was about to retire, but reconstructive surgery proved far more successful than earlier attempts to sort out his issues and he shocked the world of golf with two top-five finishes in PGA Tour events.

The three-time Open victor has missed the previous two championships - at Royal Troon and Royal Birkdale - but will return for his 20th appearance this year. "Carnoustie can be a brutal golf course and it was brutal that year", he added.

He has played seven events since returning to action at the Farmers Insurance Open in January this year.

It's reported by respected Irish golf journalist Brian Keogh in today's Irish Independent that the 14-time major victor could touch down in Donegal to tee it up just two weeks before the Open Championship at Carnoustie.

Woods, meanwhile, is still searching for his first win after making his comeback, but has put in some impressive performances along the way. 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.

Woods and Mickelson have played together 36 times in 25 events, with each beating the other on 16 occasions and four ending in ties.

Woods made the turn at even par, Mickelson at two over and Fowler at one under. "To sit here 12 months ago and you would have said, 'Yeah, you're going to be playing The Players Championship and you're going to have had a chance to win a couple of events this year, ' I would have said, 'You've got to be kidding me".

Woods begins play Thursday at 1:52 p.m. EDT on the first tee.
