When Is Tiger Woods Next Playing?

Tiger Woods is back in the big time after winning his 15th Major earlier this year at The Masters.

The now-15-time Major winner, however, has played a largely-reduced schedule in 2019 after playing “too much” last year according to Woods.

“Last year, I played too much; I played 17 events,” Woods said at Royal Portrush in July.

“And a lot of it was trying to qualify for certain events, trying to get into the playoffs … So this year I made a conscious effort to cut back on my schedule to make sure that I don’t play too much.

“I want to play here as long as I possibly can. And you have to understand, if I play a lot, I won’t be out here that long.”

Since his Masters triumph, Tiger has played just four times and turned up to Portrush looking tired, very similar to the way in which he turned up to Le Golf National at the Ryder Cup.

Woods’ next start after The Open is The Northern Trust at Liberty National in the opening event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs before the BMW Championship the following week.

He will then likely play in the Tour Championship, which he won last year, if he qualifies inside the top 30 of the FedEx Cup standings before heading to Japan some six weeks later for the new Zozo Championship.

Around five weeks later is his Hero World Challenge event in the Bahamas before he rounds his year off at the Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne, where he is captaining the USA team.
