Tiger Woods fans are truly “heartbroken” after the PGA Tour’s announcement about a special event at Muirfield Village

The PGA Tour have confirmed the full field for the Memorial Tournament and Tiger Woods is the notable absentee from the signature event at Muirfield Village.

PGA Tour fans were left bitterly disappointed Tiger Woods won’t be playing the signature Memorial Tournament this week. 

The full field for the signature event at Muirfield Village was released on Sunday evening, hours after an emotional and angry Robert MacIntyre claimed the RBC Canadian Open.

Woods, unsurprisingly, wasn’t listed among those who are competing.

Last week the official Memorial Tournament account on X posted an eyes emoji, prompting wild speculation the 15-time major champion was going to be involved.

Woods had previously spoken of his desire play more professional golf in between and in the run-up to major championships after he missed the cut at the 2024 PGA Championship.

But it turned out the brouhaha was over Scottie Scheffler’s inclusion into the tournament hosted annually by Jack Nicklaus.

Sweden’s Alex Noren was giving the final sponsor exemption into the Memorial, joining Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker and Billy Horschel.

News of those players’ inclusion has rubbed some golf fans the wrong way.

Woods’ fans will now see him in action at the 2024 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No.2.

The 48-year-old accepted a special exemption to play, having failed to qualify for the major for the first time in his career.

His five-year exemption into the U.S. Open for his dramatic 2019 Masters triumph ended earlier in the year.

Woods has won the U.S. Open on three occasions (2000, 2002 and 2008).

The 2024 edition will be the first time he has played in it since 2020.

He was recovering from back surgery the last time the U.S. Open was played at Pinehurst.

“The US Open, our national championship, is a truly special event for our game and one that has helped define my career,” Woods previously said of his U.S. Open invite.

“I’m honoured to receive this exemption and could not be more excited for the opportunity to compete in this year’s US Open, especially at Pinehurst, a venue that means so much to the game.”

The 2024 U.S. Open will be played over 13-16 June.
