Tiger Woods will tee it up this week at Jack Nicklaus’ Memorial Tournament, his first outing since a lackluster TPC performance.
Woods, who has won five times at the Memorial, took a bit of a detour on Sunday and flew Air Eldrick out to Washington state for a covert practice operation at Chambers Bay, site of the U.S. Open in two weeks.
Woods landed at the private field near Gig Harbor then showed up Monday morning for a look at Chambers Bay, a links-style course.
Woods will be hoping for a huge turnaround in his U.S. Open luck. He’s only played in two of the last four and hasn’t had a top 10 since 2010.
Phil Mickelson was on site last week for a looksee at Chambers Bay and referred to the course as “interesting.”
Mickelson will be joining Woods in the Memorial field starting on Thursday.
