Not only the US Open, scheduled for June 13-16 at Pinehurst, North Carolina. Tiger Woods could potentially return to the field sooner than expected. It is not out of the question that the California champion may play in The Memorial Tournament, a PGA Tour event taking place from June 6 to 9 in Dublin, Ohio (USA).

Fans have been stirred up on social media, with many using an emoji with wide-open eyes. Interestingly, in 2020, the 15-time Major champion "used" The Memorial as the stage for his return to the green.

Tiger Woods, results

Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger Woods, was born on December 30, 1975, in Cypress, California, and is an American golfer.

Considered one of the greatest golfers of all time, he is also one of the most popular athletes of the early 21st century. With 15 major tournament victories to his name, he revolutionized the world of golf with his sporting achievements and by attracting a new audience to the sport.

A prodigy, Tiger Woods began playing golf at a very young age and achieved remarkable success in all junior categories. As an amateur, he was closely watched for his extraordinary abilities, turning professional at the end of the summer of 1996.

Winning the Masters in 1997, he became the world number one less than a season after turning professional. Dominating much of the 2000s, various physical problems with his knees and back forced him to reinvent his game. A commercial figure and the face of Nike, Tiger Woods secured numerous lucrative contracts off the course, making him one of the wealthiest athletes of the 2000s despite scandals tarnishing his personal life and his marriage in 2009.

In April 2019, at the age of 43, he achieved the feat of winning his 5th Masters at Augusta and his 15th major title overall, eleven years after his last major victory. On May 6, 2019, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States, by President Donald Trump. On March 8, 2022, he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
