At Southern Hills, the course is less hilly than at Augusta
Southern Hills will host the 104th PGA Championship from May 19-22 and, according to Golf Digest, Woods is clearly planning to attend, barring any setbacks in his preparation.

At Southern Hills, the course is less hilly than at Augusta, with the only notable climbs and descents being around the ninth and eighteenth holes. In 2007, under a big heat wave, Woods had returned a card of 63 in the 2nd round, or 7 strokes under par, then equaling the lowest score in the history of major tournaments. He then finished at -8 on Sunday to win the tournament.
