Will Tiger Woods play the Open Championship at St Andrews?

The Open Championship returns to the Old Course at St Andrew’s. Will three-time champion Tiger Woods be there?

Tiger Woods returned to competitive golf earlier this spring when the 15-time major champion stepped onto the Augusta National Golf Course. Tiger’s return to this year’s Masters tournament was the first major he had played in since the US Open in 2020.

But fear not golf fans, Tiger Woods is back and will be on the course when play gets underway on Thursday’s historic Old Course at St Andrew’s. That 150th Open Championship marks the 22nd time that Woods has competed in golf’s oldest major.

Will Tiger Woods play the Open Championship at St Andrews?

What would the British Open Championship be without Tiger Woods? Of course, the last time Tiger finished in the top 10 was in 2018 when the tournament was won by Francesco Molinari at Carnoustie.

The last time Woods actually won the Open Championship was at Royal Liverpool in England in 2006. It was Wood’s third British Open title and represented back-to-back victories in the tournament for the first time since Tom Watson in 1982 and 1983.

That championship, which Tiger Woods won in 2005, was actually played on the Old Course at St Andrew’s, as was his first time clinching the Claret Jug in 2000.

It will be interesting to see how Woods reacts. He did not compete in the US Open earlier this year and was forced to withdraw from the PGA Championship. If Woods makes the cut and is even in talks next Sunday, it will be a small miracle.

Should the unbelievable actually happen and Tiger wins the Open Championship for a fourth time, he will be the only four-time winners of the event along with Bobby Locke, Walter Hagen, Willie Park Sr., Tom Morris Sr. and Tom Morris Jr. It would also give Woods his 83rd tour win and break the all-time record for most wins he currently shares with Sam Snead.
