Tiger Woods has entered the Open Championship


SHARE THIS STORY

Since a lot of people in golf are looking for any sign of Tiger Woods' comeback and future plans: The 14-time major winner has entered the Open Championship ahead of the Thursday deadline.

This marks the second major this summer that Woods has at least entered. Of course, entering a major is a clerical step in making it at least possible to compete in a tournament. As a three-time Claret Jug winner (2000, '05, '06), Woods is exempt in the Open until he's 60.

Royal Troon hosts the 2016 Open Championship. Woods finished tied for ninth there in 2004, the last time it held the Open.



Woods also entered the U.S. Open on the Monday of Masters Week, well ahead of the deadline to commit.

The former world No. 1 is yet to indicate a firm date for his return to competitive golf. Woods has been rehabilitating after a pair of back surgeries, including a second microdiscectomy in 20 months, last fall. At last week's Quicken Loans National media day, Woods said he still doesn't have a timetable for his return. He also said he has been unable to complete full-day practice sessions in consecutive days since the surgery.
