Tiger Woods meant it when he said he planned to add some new stops to his schedule this year.

According to Jim Justice, owner of the Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., Woods will play in the Greenbrier Classic on July 5-8 as he prepares for the British Open, which begins July 19.

It is not certain whether there’s any extra financial incentive for playing in the tournament, which drew Phil Mickelson last year (he missed the cut). Mickelson, Sergio Garcia and Tom Watson are expected to play this year.

Woods, who finished in a tie for 46th in The Players Championship over the weekend, also committed to the Memorial tournament, which will take place May 31-June 3 and is an event he has won four times. It will be Woods’s only start between The Players and the U.S. Open, which starts June 14 at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.
