SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. — Tiger Woods has filed his entry to play in the US Open for the first time since 2015.

The USGA says Woods officially entered on Thursday (Friday in Manila), four days after he tied for 32nd in the Masters. Even exempt players have to formally enter the US Open.

Woods hasn’t played the US Open since he missed the cut at Chambers Bay with rounds of 80-76.

The US Open is June 14-17 at Shinnecock Hills on Long Island, where Woods made his US Open debut in 1995 as the US Amateur champion. He opened with a 74 and withdrew the next day with a wrist injury. He tied for 17th at Shinnecock in 2004 when he was in the midst of changing his swing.

Woods is in the last year of a 10-year exemption from winning the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines.
