The official Twitter page for the tournament announced that the Tiger Woods, three-times US Open champion, has filed an entry for the 2022 US Open, however, the question remains as to whether he will play or not. This year’s Open will be held at The Country Club of Brook line between 16th-19th June. Since Woods has only filed for the Open, the option of competing stands, it does not guarantee his participation.

The golfer is just coming off his return to competitive golfing from last week’s Masters, where he surprised many by simply teeing up and shooting 71-74 and just sitting four shots out of second place at the halfway point. After appearing weary and limping, he faded to 47th after a pair of 78s.

“We’re excited about the prospects of the future”

Woods described himself as thankful for the opportunity to compete. “I got myself there. I don’t quite have the endurance that I would like to have had, but as of a few weeks ago, didn’t even know if I was going to play this event,” the golfing superstar said on Sunday.

To go from that to here, we’re excited about the prospects of the future, about training, about getting into that gym and doing some other stuff to get my leg stronger, which we haven’t been able to do because it needed more time to heal. I think it needs a couple of days more to heal after this, but we’ll get back after it, and we’ll get into it”.

He told Sky Sports on Sunday “ It’ll just be the big events. I don’t know if it’ll be Southern Hills or not. But I am looking forward to St. Andrews. That is something that is near and dear to my heart. I’ve won two Opens there. It’s the home of golf. It is my favourite golf course in the world, so I will be there for that one. But anything between that, I don’t know.”
