Tiger Woods reveals when he plans to play in another major

"I won’t be playing a full schedule ever again, and so it’ll be just the big events."

Tiger Woods has pinpointed The Open Championship in July as the next major that he plans to play in. Woods made the comments after completing his final round at The Masters in Augusta National on Sunday.

The 15-time major winner finished 13 over par at the tournament. Woods recorded his two career-worst rounds of six over 78 at Augusta National Golf Club.

However, he earned praise for just making the cut and completing all four rounds given it was his first major since a serious car crash 14 months ago.

Due to his leg injuries, the 46-year-old won't be able to play a full PGA schedule again and he'll most likely save himself for the majors.

Woods said he will try to be fit in time for the PGA Championship at Southern Hills on May 19th. However, it seems unlikely that he will be ready in time to compete.

The five-time Masters' winner highlighted the St. Andrews golf course as his "favourite golf course in the world" and confirmed his plans to play in the UK major.

“I won’t be playing a full schedule ever again, and so it’ll be just the big events. I don’t know if I’ll be able to play Southern Hills or not, but I am looking forward to St. Andrews,” Woods told Sky Sports.

“That is something that is near and dear to my heart. I’ve won two Opens there, it’s the Home of Golf and it’s my favourite golf course in the world. So I will be there for that one. But anything in between that, I don’t know.”

“I will try, there’s no doubt, this week I will try and get ready for Southern Hills and we’ll see what this body is able to do.”

Paul McGinley backs Woods.

Irish golfer Paul McGinley claimed to have seen enough at the Masters to suggest Woods will still be competitive in upcoming major competitions.

The 2014 Ryder Cup captain predicted that the 15-time major winner will be in the running for at least one of the upcoming three majors this year.

“I’ve seen enough this week that we should be really excited about the summer ahead," McGinley said on Sky Sports.

"We’ve got three major championships coming up and you can bet your bottom dollar that he’ll be competitive in at least one of them.”
