It’s official — Tiger Woods will be in the field at the Northern Trust when the FedEx Cup Playoffs start next week.
Woods is currently 48th in the FedEx Cup standings. Starting with 125 players at the first event at TPC Boston, only the top 70 will advance to the BMW Championship at Olympia Fields in Illinois. From there, only the top 30 advance to the finale, the Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta.
Woods insisted earlier he was prepared to play more events down the stretch, and had been gearing up for a more demanding schedule
“We knew once I started playing again when I committed to Memorial that this was going to be a heavy workload, and my training sessions, we’ve been pushing it pretty hard, making sure that I kept my strength and endurance up,” he said. “We’ll be pushing it hard to make sure that I can stay strong and have the endurance to keep on going.”
Woods is not playing in this week’s regular-season finale, the Wyndham Championship.
