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 Feb. 21)


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


• Tiger has not confirmed his next event, but he is not in the field for the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship this weekend (Feb. 20-23) and he missed Friday's deadline to enter next week's Honda Classic (Feb. 27-March 1). It will be the second straight year he passes on playing the event in Palm Beach Gardens, which is near his South Florida home.


• Looking ahead, a likely return for Tiger could come at the Arnold Palmer Invitational (March 5-8) at Bay Hill in Orlando, Florida. Woods has won the prestigious event a record eight times, the most recent coming in 2013.
