Runner-up FedEx Cup 2018 announced that it will play in The Northern Trust next week, before joining the BMW Championship next week.
Woods quit the WGC-FedEx St. event. Jude Invitational in Memphis last week on the grounds of needing a break from failure at The Open. According to Golf Channel, “Super Tiger” had a minor injury when attending the last major tournament of the year and had three weeks of treatment in Florida.
The 43-year-old star has played 10 tournaments since the beginning of the year. After crowned at The Masters in April, he only attended another major event called Memorial Tournament in early June. In the top 20 world golfers, Woods is the least competitive player this season.
Last year, 81 titles of PGA Tour ranked T40 at The Northern Trust, T6 in BMW Championship and Tour Championship. The first championship after five years helped Woods finish second in the 2018 FedEx Cup race with 41 points less than Justin Rose.
After the Dell Technologies award was cut, 2019 FedEx Cup Playoffs only had three events. Both The Northern Trust and the BMW Championship will mark the second time in the past two years, with Woods playing for two weeks at the PGA Tour.
This is a must for him to win the Tour Championship, the event that decides the FedEx Cup championship this season. With 27th place on the current FedEx Cup score, Woods is still in danger of being knocked out of the top 30 golfers to win the Tour Championship.
As a rule, the top 125 golfers FedEx Cup will be attended by The Northern Trust. The number dropped to 70 when the BMW Championship kicked off. The 27th position ensures Woods is in BMW Championship, despite the results at Liberty National Golf Club next week.
