Tiger Woods has two Majors in five-event summer diary, including US Open and The Open Championship

By Staff Reporter

Former world number one Tiger Woods has revealed his upcoming schedule of events, describing the five-tournament stretch as a "busy summer".

Woods, who will start just his fourth event of 2015 in next week's Players Championship, 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 39-year-old is ranked 116th in the world and would have to be inside the top 50 on either July 27 or August 3 to qualify for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone, an event he has won eight times. The 14-time Major winner made no mention of the US PGA Championship at Whistling Straits which takes place the following week.

Former Ryder Cup player and Players Championship winner Calvin Peete has died at the age of 71, the PGA Tour has confirmed. Peete won 12 times on the PGA Tour from 1979 to 1986 - making him the most successful African-American player before Tiger Woods - the highlight of which was his victory in the Players Championship at Sawgrass in 1985.
