Tiger Woods Commits to The National

Not a huge surprise, given that it benefits his own charitable foundation, but Tiger Woods made it official, and announced he’ll be playing in The National this summer.

Woods, a two-time winner of the event (2009 and 2012), will be teeing it up in the DC-based tournament for the first time since 2015, before his recent back woes.

The 14-time major champ will headline the field at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farms, which will be contested June 28-July 1.

“I am really looking forward to being back in the D.C. area this summer playing in The National,” Woods said in a press release via Twitter.

“As a two-time champion of this event benefiting my foundation, The National has always been a special event for me.”

Like this week’s Houston Open, a less than ideal scheduling slot (4th of July weekend) has hurt the tournament’s ability to secure a new title sponsor following the exit of Quicken Loans.

Woods will next tee it up at the Masters, where, after two-straight stellar showings (Valspar Championship T2, Arnold Palmer Invitational T5), he’s a top favorite to win his fifth green jacket.
