The golf world endured a long wait to see Tiger Woods back in action when the sports world shut down in March because of COVID-19. We got a glimpse of Tiger in abysmal conditions at The Match II: Champions for Charity, and then a more formal look last month when he teed it up at the Memorial.
Woods closed out his 18th appearance in the Memorial on July 19 with a final-hole bogey that completed a 4-over-par 76 at and placed his name well down on the leaderboard at Muirfield Village Golf Club. The five-time winner of Jack Nicklaus’s annual gathering of the game’s best players posted rounds of 71-76-71-76 that left him at 6-over-par 294.
This week, Woods continues his quest for another major title at TPC Harding Park. He has a new putter in play — benching his iconic Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS that he used to win 14 of his 15 majors in favor of a new Scotty Cameron prototype.
Woods tees off at 11:33 a.m. EDT alongside Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas.
