The 15-time major champion recently made his return to action in The Masters at Augusta National, less than 14 months on from the car crash that had nearly cost him his right leg.

Woods provided encouragement that he can still compete among the best as he started strongly before eventually placing 47th at the end of the weekend.

The 46-year-old successfully defended the Wanamaker Trophy at Southern Hills in 2007 in what marked the latest of his four victories on the course.



Speaking after The Masters he admitted he was unsure over his participation in Oklahoma: “I won’t be playing a full schedule ever again, so it will just be the big events. I don’t know if I will play Southern Hills or not.”

However, Tiger Woods discussed his chances of competing at The 150th Open at St. Andrews in July.

“I’m looking forward to [The Open Championship] at St Andrews,” he said.

“That is something that’s near and dear to my heart, I’ve won two Opens there, it’s the Home of Golf and it’s my favourite golf course in the world. I will be there for that one.”
