Shinnecock Hills, NY …

Tiger Woods tees-up in a U.S. Open for a first time since 2015 admitting he’s missed playing in America’s national championship.

Woods is a three-former U.S. Open winner having won the event in 2000, 2002 and 2008 while USGA organised events have been kind to Woods as far back as 1991 when he won the first of three US Junior Amateur titles.

And in 1994 Woods then went onto the brilliant capture the first of three U.S Amateur titles.

Woods this week is also contesting a first U.S. Open since 2015 while he captured a last and 14th Major Championship by winning the 2008 U.S. Open in a play-off at Torrey Pines.

And this week is somewhat special for Woods as he made his U.S. Open debut in 1995 at this week’s Shinnecock Hills h even though he did withdrew with injury.

“I’ve really have missed playing the U.S. Open,” said Woods.

“It’s our nations title and it’s meant so much to me and to my career while the USGA has done so much for golf.

“For me, this was the biggest event you could win and growing-up winning a USGA event was special and to win a USGA event nine times (Three US Junior Amateurs, Three successive US Amateur titles and three US Open victories).

“So, I am looking forward to this week and I said, I have really missed playing U.S. Open’s and this will be another fun test.”
