From there he will head to the US Open on the 18th of June. Woods also plans to play in the Greenbrier Classic before heading to St Andrews to play in the Open before playing in his foundation event, the Quicken Loans National at the end of July.

Having finished tied 17th at Augusta, Woods must be feeling good about his game to release his schedule so early in the year.

Unprecedented move

Players normally wait a few weeks before the first round before deciding whether they will play in that specific tournament.

Woods also took the unprecedented decision to make his announcement on his Twitter account, where he has over four million followers.

The 116th-ranked golfer in the world made no mention of the PGA Championship that takes place in August.

Agent talks

His agent Mark Steinberg did, however, say he does expect his client to play in that tournament along with the others he mentioned.

With such a busy schedule planned, questions will be asked if his body will be able to handle such busy schedule having had stop start seasons over the last couple of years.
