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 July 9)


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


• Tiger announced on July 9 on Twitter that he would return to action for the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide, which will take place July 16-19 at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, after being escheduled from early June. Tiger has won the Memorial five times, the most recent coming in 2012.



• This will mark Tiger's first PGA Tour event since The Genesis Invitational Feb. 16-19. Tiger missed the next four events, including The Players Championship (which was canceled after the first round) before the PGA Tour halted action due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Tiger has not played in any of the four tournaments that have been held since the PGA Tour resumed action on June 11, and he's not entered in this weekend's Workday Charity Open, which also will be held at Muirfield Village GC.


• Tiger's entry into the Memorial comes just three weeks before the first major of the season, the rescheduled PGA Championship (Aug. 6-9) at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. Three of the four majors were assigned new dates as part of a revised schedule, and assuming he's healthy, Tiger will likely play in all of those and remaining big tournaments, including the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
