Keep up to date with 14-time major champion Tiger Woods' schedule for this season with NCG

Which tournaments will Tiger Woods play during the 2018-19 PGA Tour season? As soon as any changes are made, you will be able to read about them right here…

Where has Woods played so far this season?

Although not an official PGA Tour event, Woods took on Phil Mickelson in The Match. Mickelson took the controversial $9 million prize money with victory at the 22nd hole in Las Vegas.

Where next on the Tiger Woods 2019 schedule?

He will tee up at the 18-man Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, a tournament he hosts. Victory could move Woods as high as 6th in the world rankings.

Anything else?

Speaking ahead of the Hero World Challenge, Woods confirmed he is signed up for the Genesis Open in February.

“The only thing set in stone is I’m playing the Genesis and four majors,” he said. “Other than that, we are still taking a look at it.”

He added: “What is too much? What can I handle going forward? I need to make sure I am rested and ready to play.

“What I’ve found is all my good seasons is when I’ve had time off and felt rested. If I didn’t feel rested, I didn’t play well. Maybe that’s just from being a bit older, but I think it’s important and playing seven of the last nine [events] last year was too much.”

What are Tiger’s exemptions?

His victory at the Tour Championship means he can enter any PGA Tour tournament in 2019, and providing he doesn’t suffer a drastic fall in the world rankings, he will be eligible for the World Golf Championships.

The Masters and PGA Championship offer lifetime exemption to champions, while The Open is up to the age of 60.

Woods’ 10-year US Open exemption ran out in 2018, but his Tour Championship win books his spot at Pebble Beach.
