Tiger Woods files entry to play US Open in June


The USGA confirmed Thursday that Woods is in the field for the upcoming tournament at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, which will give the 42-year-old another chance at winning his 15th major.

Woods, who is now No. 88 in the Official World Golf Ranking - up 656 spots since the end of a year ago - last won the U.S. Open in 2008 at Torrey Pines.

In his return, he almost posted his 80th career PGA Tour win (and first in five years) before finishing T-2 at the Valspar Championship.

Nine years later, he shot 10 over par and tied for 17th.

His performance was enough to lift him back into the world's top 100 for the first time in three years, although he is now expected to have at least the next three weeks off, returning at either the Wells Fargo Championship early next month or the following week's Players Championship.
