On Live From they mentioned very briefly that his 10 year exemption expires this year based off his 2008 win. I know it never really occurred to me because it just seems incomprehensible but itís conceivable that Tiger could have to qualify for future U.S. Opens. Of course, itís another year away and lots of things could happen but I do believe itís a distinct possibility.

The only caveat should it come to that is a special exemption which he will almost certainly get one or two of.

All he has to do is win a tourney, come what... top 50 in fedex points, place top 5 this year in any of the other majors etc... Plenty of time/ways for him to get in next year with out needing to qualify.

I would hazard a guess that if this scenario were to occur Mr. Woods would be the beneficiary of a special exemption like the ones Els and Furyk received this year.  Maybe indefinitely lol.  79 wins and 3 US Opens has to get you some love.

Actually, none of those necessarily get him in except for a top five in this yearís US Open. Top five in the other majors doesnít get you squat, nor do wins, at least not as it pertains to what weíre talking about. They would all help move him up in the OWGR obviously but would not guarantee him anything. There are numerous guys who have won, some more than once, in the past year who had to go through qualifying this year.

Actually, none of those necessarily get him in except for a top five in this year's US Open. Top five in the other majors doesn't get you squat, nor do wins, at least not as it pertains to what we're talking about. They would all help move him up in the OWGR obviously but would not guarantee him anything. There are numerous guys who have won, some more than once, in the past year who had to go through qualifying this year.
Yes you are correct. I got mixed up and thought as long as you placed top 4 or 5 in any previous year's major, you got exemption, similar to the Masters.

Tiger can come in top 10 though this year and get exemption for 2019. Also, looks like top 60 in world rank gets you in, too. He is currently rank 80, so as long as he keeps placing well I think he can make it to 60.

If the USGA is brighter than I believe they are, they will ensure Big Cat is playing as long as he wants to show up (which I believe is eight more years).

Exactly.  Tiger tells the USGA when he's done not the other way around.

I guess I never knew this... I thought a major win got you into every major for the next 5 years. Times that by 14 and I thought he was exempt for every major for life. Now of course, I know the Masters, The Open and PGA Championship all allow lifetime entry for winning, so I thought he was golden for the US Open for life. Guess I was wrong.

Most of his tournament eligibility issues go away when he gets his OWGR below 50.  I think that's his primary goal right now.

I think some of you guys are giving the USGA a little too much credit. One exemption, of course, two, absolutely, but who gets any more than that? And no, I’m sorry but I don’t think Tiger will tell the USGA when he’s done. In fact, I could see the USGA taking a stand just to make a point about exactly how democratic they really are.

Provided he remains healthy I don’t think it will be an issue as I believe he will find a way into the top 60 in the world if nothing else, but by no means is it a lock. I don’t think it’s a huge stretch to envision a scenario at some point in the future by which he could be forced to qualify.

Tiger will get exemptions as long as he gets ratings.  He doesn't have to worry about winning a tournament, finishing top 5 in a major, top 50 in FedEx, or whatever other requirements that would get him in.  He will have a spot in the US Open for the foreseeable future.  Now if the USGA were smart, they'd give him a "bye" for the first two rounds and let him start on Saturday with the last group.

I agree. Don't think he will (or should) get unlimited special invites to the US Open.
But I doubt he'll need one for next year. He should be comfortably within the OWGR top 60 by then.

No tournament on earth is going to deny Tiger to play. He could probably get an exemption the the US Kid's if he wanted one.

Jack played until he was 60.  I'm fairly certain he got at least a couple special invites....

If you think the USGA won't invite Tiger back as long as he is healthy and able to play, you're nuts.

The rules different back then if I’m not mistaken. You used to be fully exempt until the age of 60, just like you’re exempt until 65 at The Open. I guess this is a debate that we won’t be able to settle for several more years, but you guys talk about The USGA like they’re a title sponsor. The USGA is not Valspar, MasterCard, BMW, Waste Management, etcetera. Respectfully, if you think anyone is getting unlimited special exemptions into The US Open based on lifetime achievement, then you’re nuts.

I need look no further than the World Golf Championship events to prove my point. Someone above said he could get an exemption into any tourney he wanted... This has already been proven wrong.

A quick google search answers your question.  Jack was given special exemptions from 1994-2000.  

https://www.nytimes....ney-string.html
https://www.cbsnews....reak-continues/

WGC events have never given exemptions, completely different story there, as entry is based solely on ranking.  

Say again:  Tiger will not be headed to sectionals any time soon.

That stand would cost them so much money every time they make it, they would have to be brain dead.

Put me in the 'golf is a business' crowd, that understands no Tiger means less viewers, less sponsors, less advertisers.

Put me in the 'golf is a business' crowd, that understands no Tiger means less viewers, less sponsors, less advertisers.

Viewers, sponsors and advertisers will not continue to care indefinitely about a Tiger that isn't good enough to qualify on his own.

Viewers, sponsors and advertisers will not continue to care indefinitely about a Tiger that isn't good enough to qualify on his own.

We literally JUST go through a 10 year span of Tiger not being good enough to qualify on his own, where fans, viewers, sponsors, (this site) and advertisers still flocked to him like crazy.
Tiger is a legend and will forever be an Ambassador of this sport, whether he's qualifying or not, even whether he's playing or not.  Sponsors, advertisers, and viewers will follow.
One day, Tiger might join the Senior Tour, and if you don't think sponsors, viewers, and advertisers are going to follow him, then I think you're crazy.

Fine, 5 years, 3 years, 1 year, doesn't matter, it's a moot point.

Even during a period where Tiger sucked, couldn't play, couldn't finish rounds, couldn't qualify, Sponsors, advertisers, media, viewers, and this forum STILL flocked to him.
In 5 more years if Tiger can't qualify, or can't even play, it won't matter, we are STILL going to flock to him.

It would be ignorant for the USGA not to find a way to keep him on tour by any means necessary.

I would hazard a guess that if this scenario were to occur Mr. Woods would be the beneficiary of a special exemption like the ones Els and Furyk received this year.  Maybe indefinitely lol.  79 wins and 3 US Opens has to get you some love.

Definitely. Look how many exemptions Jack got...
