Woods to play Memorial in US Open tune-up

14-time major champion Tiger Woods | AP

Tiger Woods' 2018 has been consistent.

The 43rd Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, is hosted by Jack Nicklaus May 31-June 3.

The tournament announced Woods' commitment Wednesday. It will nearly certainly be his final tournament before the U.S. Open June 14-17 at Shinnecock Hills.

Five-time champion Tiger Woods will play in the Memorial Tournament in OH for what is likely to be his final event before next month's US Open.

He has had concerns regarding his putting, but over the last week at the Players Championship, he was pleased to see an improvement.

Coli update: You can now safely eat romaine again
That means that the agency is no longer advising consumers to avoid buying romaine lettuce in connection with the outbreak . In April, the CDC warned Americans to toss out any romaine lettuce they might have bought in stores.

Nicklaus said he believed Woods, who has made a comeback to golf this season after missing most of the previous two years through injury, is close to claiming a tournament victory. World No. 1 Justin Thomas, Masters champion Patrick Reed, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and defending champion Jason Dufner are confirmed for the Golden Bear's marquee event.

Woods has secured four top-12 finishes, including a share of 11th at last week's Players Championship, in the eight events he has played since returning to the PGA Tour following spinal fusion surgery in April 2017. Jason Dufner won it past year. The 14-time Major champion last played the tournament in 2015.

The former world number one won this tournament three years running from 1999 and then again in 2009 and 2012.

"It was just a matter of time, and this weekend was it", Woods said.
