It was the fourth top-12 finish of the year for Woods, who was T-12 at the Honda Classic, T-2 at the Valspar Championship and T-5 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Tiger Woods has confirmed that he will participate in this year's Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament, according to a report on ESPN.

Five-times champion Tiger Woods has committed to playing in the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, for what is likely to be his final tune-up ahead of next month's U.S. Open, tournament organisers said on Wednesday. Tom Lehman said Woods "looks like the old Tiger".

"I am pleased that the Memorial Tournament once again is drawing a wonderful field", Nicklaus said in a release.

Woods finished strongly at The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach last weekend, posting a seven-under 65 in the third round before closing with a three-under 69 to finish seven shots adrift of tournament victor Webb Simpson. Woods and Thomas join a stacked gathering that includes Masters champion Patrick Reed, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Bubba Watson and defending champion Jason Dufner. Jason Dufner won it past year. He's won the tournament five times (1999-2001, 2009 and 2012). The Memorial will be his ninth start this year and 16th career appearance in the tournament.

"It was just a matter of time, and this weekend was it", Woods said.
