The Northern Trust: Tiger Woods Returns to the FedExCup Playoffs


The FedExCup playoffs are upon us as the The Northern Trust at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey begins on Thursday and that means that there are only four tournaments left in the 2018 season. This will mark the first time that Tiger Woods has played in the FedExCup playoffs since the Tour Championship in 2013.

Woods (20th in FedExCup points) is paired with Tommy Fleetwood (23) and Marc Leishman (20) and will be going off on the ninth tee at 7:54 a.m. on Thursday. Just behind the Woods group will be the top three players in the world in Dustin Johnson (1st in FedExCup), Brooks Koepka (3), and Justin Thomas (2).

On Tuesday, ahead of the event, Woods said that he is going to have to drive the ball well this week, something he hasn’t been able to do all season.

“We’ve got thunderstorms coming in, so hopefully I can get in some holes and figure out a game plan. I know it’s going to be soft, it’s going to be wet, the rough is thick, and yeah, I’m gonna have to drive the ball well this week and keep it in play and whatever club that is, it is.”

Woods’s inability to hit fairways with his driver off the tee has definitely hindered his chances at winning, even though he’s had quite a few this season. With a steady driver, his chances definitely increase.
