Tiger commits to Memorial

15 May 2013, 17:42

Dublin - World number one Tiger Woods announced on Tuesday that he will defend his title at next month's PGA Memorial tournament, using the event as his final tuneup for the US Open.

Woods became the first five-time winner in the history of the Memorial, hosted by golf icon Jack Nicklaus at Muirfield Village, the site of the next Presidents Cup matches between US and International squads in October.

"I always look forward to playing in Jack's tournament," Woods said. "It's a wonderful course and we are always treated well. We as players are very appreciative of what he has meant to the game."

The event will be played May 30-June 2 at Muirfield Village.

Woods has won 14 major titles, four shy of the record 18 majors won by Nicklaus, and 78 career PGA titles, four short of the all-time record of 82 won by the late Sam Snead.

Last year, Woods closed with a five-under par 67 to win the Memorial by two strokes, adding it to titles taken in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2009.

On Sunday, Woods captured his second title at the Players Championship, his fourth victory in seven starts this year. Woods leads the PGA in scoring, putting and prize money.

Woods has not won a major title since taking the 2008 US Open but will try to end the major drought with a victory June 13-16 at Merion.
