HOURour after PGA of America announced Phil Mikaelson would not defend his PGA Championship title, the tournament was strong evidence that Tiger Woods would play golf on southern hills.
Woods was included in a list of pre-championship interviews scheduled for 13:00 ET Tuesday. If Woods enters the competition, it will be his second major championship since he almost lost his right leg in a car accident in February 2021.
Tournament purse totaled $12 million
Woods officially returned to competition in April at Masters, finishing in 47th place. Shortly after that, I did an 18-hole practice round at the South Hills Championship course.
The South Hills are also where Woods won the 2007 PGA Championship, his last in that major. Woods also won in the South Hills in 1999, 2000 and 2006. $12,000,000.
