Breaking: Tiger Woods Arrives at Valhalla for PGA Championship

With speculation swirling about whether or not Tiger Woods will compete this week in the PGA Championship, he put it to an end Wednesday afternoon. He arrived at Valhalla, hit a few on the range and is now out on the course playing a practice round.

On Tuesday, Woods was granted his request for an extension to register for the tournament. His agent, Mark Steinberg, reached out to Kerry Haigh, Chief Championships Officer for the PGA of America, late Tuesday afternoon and requested an extension to register. He was one of six players in the field who had yet to do so. 

According to the PGA Championship, the deadline to do so was 5 p.m. Tuesday.

He will need to register before playing a practice round.

And so Tiger will continue his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 majors. He owns 14, but hasn’t won one since 2008. One of them came in the 2000 PGA Championship at Valhalla, a course Tiger has not played since.
