Wondering about the Tiger Woods 2019 schedule? So are we. So which tournaments will Tiger 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…

Tiger Woods 2019 schedule: Where has he played so far?

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.

Tiger then teed it up at the Hero World Challenge in December, a tournament he hosts in the Bahamas, and was 17th of the 18 starters.

He returned to 2019 action at one of his favourite venues, Torrey Pines, and recorded a tie for 20th, before improving that finish by five places up the road at Riviera.

The 14-time major champion then jetted south of the border to play in Mexico for the first time where he finished in a tie for 10th.

What’s in Tiger’s bag for 2019?

Tiger was due to play at the Arnold Palmer Invitational but had to withdraw due to a neck strain. However, he was fit enough to play the week after at TPC Sawgrass where he finished in a tie for 30th.

He had another good week at the WGC-Match Play Championship where he defeated Rory McIlroy in the round of 16 before losing to Lucas Bjerregaard in the quarter finals.

Tiger Woods 2019 Schedule

The greatest sporting comeback was complete at Augusta National when Tiger defeated his rivals by a single shot to seal his fifth Green Jacket.

Following his heroics at Augusta, Tiger didn’t play an event before the PGA Championship at Bethpage where he missed the cut.

He then decided to squeeze in the Memorial ahead of the US Open, finishing T9, before a T21 at the US Open.

Tiger Woods 2019 schedule: Where next?

There are four events between the US Open and Open Championship – the Travelers Championship, Rocket Mortgage Classic, 3M Open and John Deere Classic – but it is looking unlikely Tiger will play any of them.

Speaking to ESPN at Pebble Beach, Woods said his next goal is “family time”.

He added: “It’s just trying to wind down from the championship as well as [get in the gym] and getting back into it.

“I know that Florida will not be the same temperature as Northern Ireland. I’m not going to be practising with any sweaters at home, but it will be nice to get to Portrush and get with it again.”

After the final major of the year at Portrush, Tiger has confirmed he will play in Japan at the Vovo Championship which is making its debut on the PGA Tour in October. Tiger has stated that Japan is one of his favourite countries, and reading between the lines this could be a precursor to an appearance at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Tiger Woods 2019 schedule: Exemptions

His victory at the Tour Championship in 2018 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 booked his spot at Pebble Beach.
