Tiger Woods yacht spotted in the Hamptons prior to US Open

Tiger Woods is going to have the swankiest accommodations of anyone at the U.S. Open this year.

The worst of Woods' well-documented back problems appear to be behind him and he has a pair of top-10 finishes to his name in 2018, though he did finish well off the pace at the Masters in April.

The Montauk Yacht Club is located about an hour away from Shinnecock Hills, where Woods will be shooting for his 15th Major championship and his first since winning the U.S. Open in 2008.

The flip side of the groups includes a Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy threesome that should be enormous as well.


Those in attendance looking to track the progress of defending champion Brooks Koepka will get to see him play alongside two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson and former world No. 1 and 2015 PGA victor Jason Day. He does not have a PGA tour win since August 2013.

The 14-time major champion is now ranked 80th in the world following last weekend's Memorial Tournament, where he finished tied for 23rd.

The American rivals will head to the first tee at 6:47pm (BST) on Thursday along with Woods, who has not played in the second major of the year since he suffered a humiliating early exit at Chambers Bay three years ago.
