Tiger Woods to play the US Open

Tiger Woods will play next month’s US Open after accepting a special exemption from the USGA.

The 48-year-old has won the event three times – in 2000, 2002 and 2008 – but had to rely on an invite after his five-year major championship exemption for winning the 2019 Masters expired.

The 2024 US Open takes place at Pinehurst, North Carolina and gets under way on June 13.

Woods said: “The U.S. Open, our national championship, is a truly special event for our game and one that has helped define my career.

“I’m honoured to receive this exemption and could not be more excited for the opportunity to compete in this year’s U.S. Open, especially at Pinehurst, a venue that means so much to the game.”

Fifteen-time major winner Woods has slipped to 789th in the world ranking after limiting his schedule following a serious car accident in February 2021.

He played the Masters last month, finishing 60th after making a tournament-record 24th consecutive cut.
