Woods, a two-time winner on the Old Course, introduced his intention after enjoying in all 4 rounds within the 84th Masters – his first occasion since being concerned in a automobile crash 14 months in the past.
Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, Executive Director – Championships on the R&A mentioned: “Tiger is one of The Open’s greatest champions and it will be fantastic to see him return to St Andrews to play in The 150th Open.
“We know that fans will be hugely excited by this news and many of them will remember his remarkable performances in 2000 and 2005 when he won the Championship at St Andrews.
“It was great to see Tiger competing again last week and we look forward to welcoming him to Scotland in July.”
Woods, a three-time Open champion, performed with Jon Rahm in Sunday’s last spherical at Augusta National.
“You can just tell that his leg is just not quite up there yet,” mentioned the Spaniard. “He is limping on the course. Obviously, he is trying very hard to play, but it’s not easy to walk up and down those hills.
“I believe if at home he can walk and get strength up and stamina in that sense, he will be able to be competitive again. This is the hardest walk all year.
“He will be able to go somewhere where it’s a little easier to walk. It won’t be as long, and I believe he’ll be able to contend.”
