Tiger Woods commits to playing next week's Memorial Tournament

PGA Tour scraps plan to have fans at Memorial due to Covid-19

The week’s PGA Tour stop carries a COVID-19 threesome

Tiger Woods will make his return to tournament golf next week at the Memorial in OH, a tournament he's won five times.

Woods, a five-time victor of the event, will make his first start on the PGA Tour since the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club in middle of February, where he finished 68th.

The 15-time major champion has not played a PGA Tour event since finishing 68th at the Genesis Invitational in mid-February.

"Given the broader challenges communities are facing due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we need to stay focused on the No. 1 priority for our return to golf - the health and safety of all involved", PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said in a news release.

However, the 44-year-old was in action in May, teaming up with Peyton Manning and beating Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in The Match: Champions for Charity.

Woods won the tournament for the first time in 1999, holding off Vijay Singh to claim his ninth PGA Tour title.

The tour resumed June 11 at Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas, and most weeks brought some level of speculation that Woods was going to play. He will be "strongly encouraged" to take a COVID-19 test this week prior to departure for Ohio. He had contemplated coming to Muirfield Village for the Workday Charity Open, a one-time event that replaces the canceled John Deere Classic, but ultimately waited until the second week at Memorial.

Woods has played only three times this season on the PGA Tour, starting with his record-tying 82nd victory at the Zozo Championship in Japan.

Woods has nine career top-10 finishes in 17 career starts at Muirfield Village, a course he said he enjoys for the layout and the ties to event host Jack Nicklaus.
