Tiger Woods won the Open at St Andrews in 2000 and 2005

Three-time champion Tiger Woods has announced he will play in this year's Open Championship at St Andrews.
The 39-year-old confirmed he will play in five tournaments this summer after finishing joint-17th in the Masters.
This year's Open takes place from 16-19 July.
Woods wrote on Twitter:  "See you at the US Open, Open Champ, Memorial, Greenbrier and my Foundation's event, the Quicken Loans National. Going to be a busy summer."
The former world number one, who won the Open at St Andrews in 2000 and 2005 and Royal Liverpool in 2006, returned to competitive golf earlier this month after a two-month break to work on his game.
He had previously announced he would play in the Players Championship at Sawgrass, Florida, next week, just his fourth event of 2015.
Currently ranked 116th in the world, the 14-time major winner shot a career-worst round of 82 to miss the cut in the Phoenix Open and withdrew after 11 holes of the Farmers Insurance Open due to injury.
However, he did better than expected at the Masters, partnering world number one Rory McIlroy on the final day and finishing five under par, 13 off winner Jordan Spieth.

First, Henrik Stenson pulled out of the Shell Houston Open with the flu. Now, Jimmy Walker has withdrawn from this week's tournament at the Golf Club at Houston, citing illness.

Walker won the Valero Texas Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour victory of the season. He then made a practice trip to Augusta National on Monday to prepare for next week's Masters. A day later, he officially withdrew from the Houston field.

"The city of Houston and tournament director Steve Timms have always been very good to me throughout my career," Walker said in a statement. "Following my win at the Valero Texas Open, I went to Augusta in order to prepare for the Masters. Unfortunately, I soon realized that I was not feeling well and needed to get better before next week. I look forward to returning to Houston in future years."
