Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson Signed up for the 2022 U.S. Open
Two of the best golfers in history, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, have signed up for the 2022 edition of the US Open, which will be held June 16th-19th in Massachusetts.
The application is just a simple formality that players must complete in order to confirm their intentions to take part in the U.S. major, which last year was won by Spain’s Jon Rahm.
Woods returned to competition a few days ago at the Augusta Masters, where he finished 47th in the standings with a score of six over par. Whereas Mickelson has stayed away from PGA courses since controversy erupted over his comments about Saudi Arabia.
As for Tiger Woods, it should be noted that the player has ruled out returning to compete in the full PGA schedule. In other words, he will only focus on being part of the main professional golf events, a strategy similar to that of Roger Federer in tennis.
