Tiger Woods' Schedule: Predicting His Next Tournament in 2020

Here's where Tiger Woods will likely play this year

It was an abbreviated but productive schedule for Tiger in 2019 — his 13 appearances at PGA Tour events (plus his Hero World Challenge) included his 15th major championship victory (at The Masters) and his record-tying 82nd career PGA Tour win (at the ZOZO Championship). He also captained the 2019 U.S. Presidents Cup team to a thrilling and emotional win in Melbourne in December to cap a resurgent year in Tiger-ville.

 

The 15-time major champion has always been selective of the events in which he plays. With the assumption that Woods will remain healthy and competitive, here's an educated guess on when Tiger should be expected to spike TV ratings and turn up the roars in the gallery.

 

(UPDATED March 17)

 

When is Tiger Woods' next tournament? Here's how his 2020 PGA Tour schedule has/could shape up.

 

• Tiger's back issues prevented him from entering The Players Championship (March 12-15) at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, which was the canceled following the first round due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The PGA Tour has since canceled events into May.

 

 

• This decision, includes the postponement of both the Masters Tournament and PGA Championship. The hope is that one or both can be rescheduled at a later date.

 

• So Tiger's first tournament back won't be known until the PGA Tour resumes play. But as Tiger himself said recently on Twitter, there are much more important things to be concerned about right now than golf tournaments.
