Tiger Woods will try for a fifth Memorial Tournament title starting later this month. Woods has accepted an invitation to play in the tournament founded by Jack Nicklaus. So have Jason Day, Bill Haas and Sunday's winner of the Players Championship, Matt Kuchar. The 37th Memorial will be played May 31-June 3 at Muirfield Village Golf Club. Woods won the Memorial in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2009. He missed last year's tournament while he recovered from knee and Achilles injuries. Woods has 10 top-10 finishes at the Memorial and has never missed the cut. He has the lowest scoring average in the tournament (minimum of 10 rounds) at 69.62 and has earned more than $3.9 million at it. The Greenbrier Classic also announced Monday that Wood would play there July 5-8.
