Tiger Woods looks set to take part in June's US Open in California after submitting an entry form to the United States Golf Association.

The season's second major will be held at Pebble Beach from 17 June and Woods will have fond memories of the course as he took the US Open title at the same venue 10 years ago, winning by 15 shots.

The 34-year-old returned to competition at last week's Masters at Augusta, after a five-month break from the game following revelations about his private life, and finished joint fourth behind Phil Mickelson.

Mike Davis, the USGA's senior director of rules and competitions, said: "Tiger has filed an entry and we're certainly anticipating that he's going to play. If someone fully exempt files an entry, generally speaking they always do play."
