The Open Championship is after the PGA Championship, which is set to take place from May 19 to May 22 at Southern Hills Championship Golf Course in Oklahoma. Woods said he’s going to try to prepare the best he can to play that event as well.

“I won’t be playing a full schedule ever again. It’ll just be the big events. I don’t know if ill play Southern Hills or not but I am looking forward to St. Andrews. It’s something that’s near and dear to my heart,” Woods said. 

“I’ve won two Opens there. It’s the home of golf. It’s my favorite golf course in the world. I will be there for that one. But anything in between that, I don’t know. I will try. I will try to get ready this week for Southern Hills and we’ll see what this body will be able to do.”
