Tiger Woods has confirmed his entry for The 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie this July 19-22.
Woods has won the Open on three occasions having lifted the iconic Claret Jug twice at St Andrews (2000, 2005) and once at Royal Liverpool (2006). In 2005, the American became only the sixth golfer in the Championship’s history to complete a wire-to-wire win. He is also a Silver Medal winner after finishing as the low amateur in his second appearance in The Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes in 1996.
Woods will play in The Open for the 20th time when he arrives at the renowned Angus links to join the world’s best golfers in the pursuit of the coveted Claret Jug. It would mark his first appearance in the Championship since 2015 at St Andrews.
The news of Woods’ planned participation will excite fans as The Open returns to Carnoustie for the first time since 2007.
