Former world number one Tiger Woods has filed his entry to compete at the US Open for the first time since 2015, the Daily Express report.

Woods, 42, had remained quiet since his Masters return on whether or not he would compete at the major he has won three times before.

However, the USGA announced on Twitter that Woods will in fact be competing at the year’s second major.

Woods’ last US Open appearance didn’t quite go to plan, after the American missed the cut at Chambers Bay with opening rounds of 80 and 76.

The 14-time major winner does now look to be back to full fitness after having back surgery for the fourth time in his career.

Woods’ confirmed appearance at Shinnecock Hills is expected to draw record crowds, similar to his Augusta appearance last week.
