Tiger Woods has registered for the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont

OAKMONT, Pa. – Tiger Woods has not provided a date and time for his return to championship golf, but he has done what is required to play in the U.S. Open here in June: register.

Woods, 40, a three-time U.S. Open champion who is recuperating from back surgeries, is exempt into the national championship because of his 2008 victory at Torrey Pines.

Yet, to participate in the 116th edition June 16-19 at Oakmont County Club, he needed to register by 5 p.m. Wednesday. Woods registered at 4:33 p.m. April 4, the U.S. Golf Association said.

I doubt the others are shaking in their shoes

In a way I hope he doesn't make it because if he's there the coverage will show way too much of him as he struggles to make the cut

Morning weets

He would have to play a few events leading up I think to have any chance to perform even to make cut.

There's talk of either Quail Hollow or Sawgrass (more likely). I would have thought that QH would suit him better.

He either wins at Sawgrass or really struggles. None or a ton.

He sure would. I don't think a single run would mean anything either way.

Frankly if he makes the cut it would be a miraculous effort but even then I don't want the whole telecast to be about that. And it will be if he plays.

Even Tiger would need at least 4-5 events to have any reasonable warm up for one of te toughest tests in golf wouldn't you think?

I made the prediction that, post indiscretions and broken leg, if he didn't win a major within the next two years, he would never win another one. I'm not feeling smug about being correct so far, and in a way, it would be good for golf to have him back competing with the new brigade.

 

Was a great fan prior to the unveiling of his gross hypocrisy. Now, I'm not so sure after the betrayal.

 

All I know is that it is somewhat sad to see him become a shadow of his former imperious self.

Agreed - he is the best I've ever seen play when he was at his best - truly special. Don't enjoy watching the broken down version.

 

He was exciting to watch in a way I have never seen anyone else be. His manufactured iron shots after poor drives into trees. And some of the chips and pitches from seemingly impossible positions.

 

But watching him constantly battle just to salvage par hole after hole doesn't bring me any joy.

I'm with Weeti on this one.

He'll play this year, but can't see him being competitive.

Not a lot of credit given on here. He isn't stupid. He will have been prepping for a while on the sly. Pump him up with pain killers and the like.. Beware the wounded golfer!!!!!

"It's way better than I thought I'd see," says 50 Best Teacher Brian Manzella. "The main overall theme looks like he's going with less side bend coming through the ball -- more of, say, a Ben Hogan level-shoulder finish."

 

Georgia teacher Brandon Stooksbury's analysis mirrored Manzella's: "Much, much less side bend through impact, and much more rounded, flatter finish position," says Stooksbury, who is based at the Idle Hour Club in Macon. "It looks less violent than before -- and from a biomechanical standpoint, it should put a great deal less pressure on his back."
