Tiger grouped with Thomas and Johnson at U.S. Open

Tiger grouped with Thomas and Johnson at U.S. Open”

The year's US Open also marks the 10th anniversary of Woods' 14th, and most recent, major victory, when he memorably played through the pain to edge out Rocco Mediate in a Monday play-off, which was also the last time the tournament required extra holes.

Mickelson will hope to atone for his series of near misses in the tournament, including the last time it was played at Shinnecock Hills in 2004, while Spieth is missing only the PGA Championship, now held by his close-friend Thomas.

Woods will stay on the boat next week, as he prepares for and plays in the Open.

Tiger Woods will stay on his yacht, named "Privacy", which is docked near Shinnecock Hills, site of next week's U.S. Open.

Thursday at Shinnecock should rock as the U.S. Open returns to its roots for the first time since 2004 and its fifth-ever national championship unfolds in Long Island.

The dark wood is a theme throughout the yacht's furnishings along with walls covered in white silk and upholstered leather furniture.

The couple hosted names like Bill Gates, Oprah and Michael Jordan while sailing the Privacy, though maybe now Woods should consider inviting the golf-loving former president Barack Obama and Michelle Obama to come check it out-not only has Obama hit the links with Woods and Jordan before, but we all know the Obamas truly lived their best lives on David Geffen's yacht. An elevator can take those aboard from one level to another, and there's a walk-in fridge, a dining area on the deck that seats 12 as well as a "sky-lounge bar", according to People. It contains a theater, gym and jacuzzi among other amenities.

The luxury vessel has a crew of nine and costs $2 million a year to run, making it worth getting every use possible out of. "Aviva III" is the 223-foot yacht owned by British billionaire Joe Lewis.
