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.
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 finished tied for 20th. His final round of 67 was his best of the week.
Where next on the Tiger Woods 2019 schedule?
Woods will compete at this week’s Genesis Open at Riviera and then head to Mexico for the WCG-Mexico Championship.
“Yeah, I’m playing next week,” Woods said at Riviera on Tuesday.
Woods has won what is now the Mexico Championship seven times but hasn’t entered since 2014, when it was held in Florida and called the Cadillac Championship.
Anything after Mexico?
“Beyond that, I haven’t really decided on what I’m going to be doing,” Woods added. “I made the decision yesterday to add Mexico to my schedule and obviously the Florida swing gets very complicated. And so I’m leaving that open ended right now to try and figure that out.”
The week after the Mexico Championship is the Honda Classic near his home at Palm Beach Gardens, followed by the Arnold Palmer Invitational and then The Players Championship. He’ll almost certainly play two of these three.
It will be interesting to see what he decides. At the end of 2018, he said: “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.
Woods’ 10-year US Open exemption ran out in 2018, but his Tour Championship win books his spot at Pebble Beach.
