You get two of the most powerful men in sports if measured by talent, money, influence, accomplishments or any other metric.

Tiger Woods' 2018 has been consistent. Even on the golf course.

Former world number one Tiger Woods has committed to play in Jack Nicklaus's Memorial Tournament later this month as he ramps up his preparations for the US Open, tournament organisers confirmed Wednesday.

The tournament, which runs from May 31 to June 3, features another strong field.

It will not be the first time that Woods and Manning have teamed together for a pro-am event.

The Hollywood star and director are said to be in early discussions about working on a biopic of former US President Ulysses S. As for DiCaprio, he hasn't been in a movie since 2015's The Revenant , for which he won his first Oscar .

Woods will be paired with former National Football League quarterback Peyton Manning for the Wednesday pro-am. The two played in pro-am tournaments in 2005 at Bay Hill and in 2009 at the Quail Hollow Championship, according to The Associated Press.

Thomas, meanwhile, finished one shot ahead of former world number one Dustin Johnson to claim top spot in the rankings at last weekend's Players.

Manning also is not the same guy he was in 2009, though this may actually play to the team's favor this time around. Manning retired after helping lead the Broncos to their third Super Bowl victory, on February 7, 2016.

"He has been playing great golf for a while now", Nicklaus said.

Woods, whose most recent victory at Muirfield Village came in 2012, has not competed in the Columbus suburb since 2015, when he carded a career-worst 85 during the third round en route to finishing in 71st place.
