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 Sept. 24)

 

When is Tiger Woods' next tournament? Here's how his 2020-21 PGA Tour schedule has/could shape up.

 

• A tie for 51st in the BMW Championship officially ended Tiger's 2019-20 PGA Tour season, as he missed the cut (top 30) for the TOUR Championship. He followed that up with a missed cut (+10) at the rescheduled U.S. Open, which was held Sept. 17-20 at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York, and won by Bryson DeChambeau (-6).

 

• On Sept. 23, Tiger announced that he would be defending his Zozo Championship title with the relocated tournament taking place at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California, from Oct. 22-25. After that, Tiger will return to Augusta National for the rescheduled major, which is set for Nov. 12-15.
