In a Thursday Twitter post, Woods announced his upcoming schedule over the next few weeks, and it seems like he will be visiting two courses that he knows quite well.

First up is the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio. Woods has won the event five times in the past, with his last victory coming in 2012.
The course was designed by Jack Nicklaus, who also hosts the tournament.
Nicklaus lending his name to the tournament, which will be played next weekend, makes it one of the biggest non-major events of the year.
After a one-week break, Woods will return to action, competing at the U.S. Open in Pebble Beach, California, which is set to take place from June 10 to 16.
Woods has already won a U.S. Open at this course once before, dominating the rest of the field in 2000.
He set a U.S. Open record by finishing 12-under par, and he was 15 shots ahead of the golfers in second, which was the largest margin of victory ever for a major.
The U.S. Open is still three weeks away, but Woods appears to have gotten some practice in on the course this week.

The course last hosted the U.S. Open in 2010, when Graeme McDowell won, while Woods and Phil Mickelson finished tied for fourth place.
Woods has experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows this year in the past two major championships.
He won The Masters, but then missed the cut at the PGA Championship.
After finishing outside of the cut line following the second round of the PGA Championship, Woods said it was just one of those tournaments where things didn’t go his way.
“It’s just the way it goes,” Woods said, according to his official website.
“You know, just don’t feel well and just not able to do it. But resting would be better, so I would have energy to play. You know, unfortunately I just didn’t — made too many mistakes and just didn’t do the little things I need to do.”
“You know, I had a couple three-putts. I didn’t hit wedges close. I didn’t hit any fairways today. Did a lot of little things wrong,” he added.
But Woods also reminded everyone of what he had accomplished just weeks earlier.
“You know, I’m the Masters champion and 43 years old and that’s a pretty good accomplishment,” he said.
