The greatest athlete to ever swing a golf club is making his triumphant return to the links.
Tiger Woods announced Thursday morning that he will return to the PGA Tour to play in the Memorial Tournament. The annual event in Jack Nicklaus’ stomping grounds near Columbus, OH is the biggest golf tournament since the PGA Tour returned last month. The action at Muirfield Village tees off next weekend July 16-19.
I’m looking forward to playing in the @MemorialGolf next week. I’ve missed going out and competing with the guys and can’t wait to get back out there.

We have not seen Tiger on a golf course since Peyton Manning helped him win The Match against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in May. Tiger last played on the PGA Tour at the Genesis Invitational in February.
A five-time winner of the Memorial Tournament, Tiger currently has 82 career PGA Tour wins, tied with Sam Snead for the most all-time. If Tiger can break that tie with a win at Jack’s event… it would be a special moment in the middle of dark days for sports fans across the country.
