Tiger Woods has announced that he will feature at next week’s The Northern Trust at TPC Boston, which will be the first event of the FedEx Cup playoffs.
With the 2019-20 PGA Tour season entering the business end of the year, Woods, a two-time winner of the FedEx Cup, will enter only his sixth event of the whole season.
The 15-time Major champion has been peculiar in the events he’s featured in but after claiming victory at the Zozo Championship in October last year, Woods secured automatic qualification for the first of three events in the playoffs.

The 44-year-old will be hoping to replicate some the previous success he’s had at TPC Boston after winning the Deutsche Bank Championship back there in 2006.
Woods currently occupies the 47th position on the FedEx Cup standings and is coming off a T37 finish at last week’s PGA Championship.
Following the completion of the event last Sunday, Woods said the focus is now making it all the way to the Tour Championship at the start of September, where the new FedEx Cup champion will be crowned.
The top-70 on the standings after The Northern Trust will qualify for the BMW Championship with the top-30 after that qualifying for the Tour Championship.
‘We’ve been training for that. Trying to get my strength and endurance up to that ability to making sure that I can handle that type of workload,’ Woods said earlier this week.
‘We knew once I started playing again when I committed to Memorial that this was going to be a heavy workload, and my training sessions, we’ve been pushing it pretty hard, making sure that I kept my strength and endurance up.
‘It’s a long grind. Playing well at the right times, it’s all about timing when you get to the TOUR Championship.’
