Tiger Woods has confirmed he plans to play in the US Open and British Open this year as he attempts to build on a top-20 finish at the Masters.

The former world number one, who did not qualify for this week's World Golf Championships Match Play in San Francisco, outlined details of his tournament schedule on Twitter.

"See you at the US Open, Open Champ, Memorial, Greenbrier and my Foundation's event, the Quicken Loans National."

His post made no mention of August's PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.

Woods returned to golf at Augusta this week following a lengthy self-imposed break, finishing tied for 17th.

The 14-time major champion, who returned to competitive golf earlier this month at the Masters after taking two months off to retool his game, previously said he will compete in next week's Players Championship.

Four of the events Woods committed to are old favorites of his.

The former world number one Woods is a five-time winner of the Memorial, hosted by Jack Nicklaus, which will be played June 4th to 7th at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.

Three-time U.S. Open winner Woods will play in the 115th edition of the championship on June 18th to 21st at Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington, on the Puget Sound shore.

Woods will be making his second appearance at the Greenbrier Classic in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, from July 2nd to 5th. He missed the cut in his only previous visit in 2012.

The 39-year-old American will return to his favorite track in golf, The Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland, for the July 16th to 19th British Open where he will seek a third Claret Jug there to add to the 2006 title he won at Royal Liverpool.

The last of the added events is especially meaningful to Woods as the July 30th to Aug 2nd Quicken Loans National at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, in Gainesville, Virginia, benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.

Woods won the tournament in 2009 and 2012.
