Tiger Woods has shocked the golf world with his return to the sport he dominated for so long.
Making only his second major tournament appearance since a near-fatal February 2021 car accident, Woods made the cut at the 2022 PGA Championship, gutting out a 1 under in the second round to finish Friday at 3 over for the tournament, one stroke below the cut line.
But Woods had to fight through pain in his surgically repaired right leg throughout the three rounds, and after a 9 over third round, he decided to withdraw from the PGA Championship. It was his first withdrawal from a major since the second one he played in his career, the 1995 U.S. Open.

Woods’ withdrawal from the PGA and ongoing leg issues have left his status at the 2022 U.S. Open up in the air. Here’s the latest on whether the golf legend will play at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Woods has not given much of an indication yet as to whether he will play in the 2022 U.S. Open, which is scheduled to begin on June 16.
He and fellow golf legend Phil Mickelson have registered to play in the event, but that registration came back before he played in the PGA Championship. Woods has indicated he will only play in “the big events,” and specifically said he will play in the British Open, which will start on July 14.

Woods has won the U.S. Open three times, one shy of the record shared by Willie Anderson, Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan and Jack Nicklaus. Those four, Woods and Hale Irwin are the only golfers with at least three wins in the U.S. Open.
Woods most recently won the U.S. Open in 2008. His other two wins came in 2000 and 2001.
