TIGER WOODS GET SPECIAL EXEMPTION TO US OPEN AT PINEHURST




Tiger Woods has accepted a special exemption to compete in the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2, marking the first time the three-time champion has required such an exemption to participate. Woods has historically been exempt from qualifying for the U.S. Open since he first competed in 1995 as the reigning U.S. Amateur champion. However, his exemption from winning the 2019 Masters expired last year.

While Woods' need for a special exemption was anticipated, it signifies a new chapter in his storied career. The USGA, which oversees the U.S. Open, is selective about granting exemptions, with Phil Mickelson being the last recipient in 2021. Woods joins a select group of golfing legends, including Jack Nicklaus, who have received special exemptions for the U.S. Open. Nicklaus, a four-time U.S. Open champion, holds the record with eight special exemptions, the last of which was awarded in 2000.
