Keep up to date with 15-time major champion Tiger Woods' schedule for the 2020 season with NCG

Wondering about the Tiger Woods 2020 schedule? So are we. So which tournaments will he play during the 2019-20 PGA Tour season? As soon as any changes are made, you will be able to read about them right here…

Tiger Woods 2020 schedule: Where has he played so far?

Tiger made his 2020 season bow at the Zozo Championship in Japan, which he won by three shots to tie Sam Snead’s record of 82 PGA Tour titles.

Before that he last played in the BMW Championship during the FedEx Cup Playoffs, where he finished in a tie for 37th and failed to qualify for the chance to defend his Tour Championship title.

Since then, Woods has had a fifth operation on his knee.

Woods began his 2020 at the familiar Torrey Pines where he finished in a tie for 9th in hat was a strong performance on his first outing of the year.

Tiger Woods 2020 schedule: Where will he play next?

The only event that Tiger is confirmed for so far is the Genesis Invitational which he will be hosting at Riviera. He’ll have a couple of weeks off before heading to Los Angeles.

Woods is yet to confirm anything after that point but it would be fair to assume he will tee it up in all majors if his fitness allows.

Tiger Woods 2020 schedule: Anything else?

Fast forward to July and Tiger has his heart set on a return to Japan.

“Making the Olympic team is a big goal,” the 15-times major champion told Reuters. “I don’t see myself having too many opportunities other than next year.”

The top 15 in the world rankings on June 22, 2020, will qualify, with a maximum of four from each country. The remaining 45 spots will go to the highest-ranked players from countries that do not already have two golfers qualified. And Woods sees this as his best chance to claim that elusive gold medal.

“Four years from now, at the next Olympic Games, I’ll be 48 years old,” he added. “To be one of the top Americans at that age is going to be tough.

“I went to my first Olympic Games when it was in Los Angeles [in 1984]. So now to have the opportunity to be a part of the Olympics, because golf in my lifetime wasn’t a part of the Olympics, is an important aspect for us and the growth of the game. The game has become so global, and so reaching, that I think the Olympic Games is a great extension of that and I’d like to be a part of it.”

Meanwhile, one of our favourite Twitter accounts, Tiger Tracker, laid out which events they expect Tiger to play in 2020…

If we were gamblers – and we are – we would lose Mexico and the St Jude from that list, and he may not even qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs or make the playing squads for the Olympics or Ryder Cup. (And if we’re being pedantic, the Zozo Championship and Hero World Challenge are part of the 2021 schedule.) Still, it’s fun to guess, isn’t it?

Tiger Woods 2020 schedule: Exemptions

Woods’ victory in last year’s Masters means he has a five-year exemption on the PGA Tour so can enter any tournament in 2020.

As for the majors, 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 that win at Augusta gets him in for another five years.
