*It appears as if Tiger Woods will follow up his play at Augusta National with a June appearance at the U.S. Open.
The Associated Press is reporting that the golfer, who ended a self-imposed five-month hiatus last weekend at The Masters, has taken the first step toward playing the U.S. Open in June by sending in his entry form. The USGA said it received Woods’ entry on Monday, one day after he tied for fourth in the Masters. It was his first competition since he was caught cheating on his wife in November.
Even players such as Woods who are exempt from qualifying for the U.S. Open must apply to play. The deadline to enter is April 28.
The U.S. Open will be held June 17-20 at California’s Pebble Beach, where 10 years ago Woods won by 15 shots and tied the tournament scoring record.
