Woods will return to the August 5-8 tournament at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, an elite event he won for a record seventh time last year after a final round five-under-par 65 to win by four strokes.

"It's one of the best courses we play all year," Woods said.

"Everything is right in front of you."

Woods, coming off a tie for 23rd at the Open earlier this month, will then launch his bid for a 15th Major title at Whistling Straits in the US PGA Championship the following week.
