Tiger Woods Will Play the US Open With Invitation

The tournament makes room for Tiger Woods once his exemption to play has expired. “The history of this tournament cannot be written without him,” they argue.

It was expected and now it’s official. Tiger Woods will play in the 2024 US Open, marking his first appearance at the American open since 2020, where he has been champion three times (2000, 2002, and 2008).

The tournament organization confirmed that they have decided to extend him an invitation after his five-year exemption for playing in majors, earned with his victory at the 2019 Masters in Augusta, expired (his 10-year exemption for the US Open from his 2008 victory expired in 2019).

“The history of this tournament cannot be written without him,” justified the USGA. Otherwise, the Californian would have had to participate in qualifying rounds to try and secure a spot.

“I am honored to receive this special exemption and could not be more excited about the opportunity to compete in the US Open this year,” the Tiger expressed his gratitude.

Before landing at Pinehurst No.2, one of the courses that has hosted the most events by the United States Golf Association over the years, Woods’ schedule includes the PGA Championship and, possibly, the Memorial, the tournament sponsored by Jack Nicklaus in Ohio, one of the most important regular events on the calendar.
