Tiger Woods accepts special exemption for US Open

Woods called the tournament “a truly special event.”

Tiger Woods will compete in the US Open in June after accepting a special exemption from the United States Golf Association. Woods has won the tournament three times, last winning the title in 2008.

However, the five-year exemption he received after winning the 2019 Masters expired earlier this year, so he is no longer automatically eligible. The 48-year-old has played in just two tournaments this year, finishing 60th at last month’s Masters, as he continues to battle the long-term effects of a spate of injuries.

Woods said in his statement: “The U.S. Open, the U.S. Open, was a really special event for our sport and helped define my career. “For me, getting this release is a great honor, and this year, especially in Pine Hurst, a place that means a lot of games, I couldn’t get any more excitement when competing in the US Open. “

The US OPEN will be performed from June 13 to 16 at Pinehurst Resort and Country Club in Caroline from the north.
