Tiger adds to his playing schedule
By Torleif Sorenson on 4/29/15
With his injuries apparently behind him and his short-game obviously sorted out, Tiger Woods announced earlier today that he is adding to his 2015 playing schedule. Last week, we told you about Woods deciding to play both The Memorial and the Players Championship.

Today, Woods confirmed via his web site that he will play the Memorial, as well as the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, the Greenbrier Classic, the Open Championship at Saint Andrews, and the PGA Tour event he hosts — the Quicken Loans National.

Tiger's 2015 season got off to a slow start, but things got a violent shove into the "improved" category at Augusta National:

  1. February 1, Waste Management Phoenix Open: CUT

  2. February 8, Farmers Insurance Open: WD

  3. April 12, The Masters: T-17

  4. May 7-10: Players Championship (victories in 2001 and 2013)

  5. June 4-7: Memorial Tournament (victories in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2009, and 2012)

  6. June 18-21: U.S. Open Championship (victories in 2000, 2002, and 2008)

  7. July 7-10: Greenbrier Classic (no victories, MC in 2012)

  8. July 16-19: The Open Championship (victories in 2000, 2005, and 2006)

  9. July 30-August 2: Quicken Loans National (victories in 2009 and 2012. Woods is the host of the tournament, which benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.)

Woods has not yet said if he will play the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, August 13–16. But as a four-time victor (1999, 2000, 2006, and 2007), he is obviously exempt from qualifying — for life.

He still moves the needle. Would the Masters have been quite the same without his little side story?

I suspect not. His T-17 at the Masters will make it easier for NBC, CBS, and Fox to promote their tournament coverage on their respective networks, for sure.
