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

Tiger Woods is going to have the swankiest accommodations of anyone at the U.S. Open this year.

Woods is believed to be staying on his yacht throughout the tournament, but whether he would be holed up in Montauk all week was unclear.

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.

Woods has been out of golf for most of the past two years and his world ranking fell out of the top 1,000.

The star golfer docked his 155ft yacht Privacy at the Gurney's Montauk Yacht Club marina in the Hamptons ahead of the tournament in June 14. It's not the first time he's done this-he also pulled the Privacy into a marina for the U.S. Open in 2006.

Privacy dwarfed the dozens of small vessels moored in the sleepy harbor about an hour's drive from Shinnecock Hills where the Open is held.

The New York Post's Page Six celebrity news site said Woods had chose to spend the week of the tournament on his 155-foot yacht named "Privacy". It contains a theater, gym and jacuzzi among other amenities. She apparently made numerous interior design choices for the sleek vessel, like the dark cherry wood, marble and leather furniture. He tried to sell "Privacy" in 2011 but found no takers at his price.
