Tiger Woods will next tee it up at the penultimate PGA Tour event of the season at the BMW Championship to be played across Olympia Fields North Course as the FedEx Cup playoffs conclude.
Woods, who currently sits at No. 57 in the FedExCup standings, needs a sixth-place finish or better at the BMW Championship to advance to the Tour Championship.
If Tiger plays like he did on Sunday at TPC Boston, shooting a 66, for three or four rounds this week, then he has a stellar chance of achieving his target.
Not to be forgotten is the fact that Woods still has the opportunity to pick up his PGA Tour record 83rd career win, eclipsing Sam Snead’s record of 82 Tour wins.
Olympia Fields hasn't hosted a PGA Tour event since the 2003 US Open, where Woods finished in a tie for 20th.
At his last event, Woods turned in a reasonable display at the Northern Trust, shooting a final round 66 to compensate for a difficult three days previous.
What he said
“I felt like I hit the ball better,” Woods said after his final round.
“I putted better. Everything was just cleaner and better today. It was good. Just wish I could have kept the round going a little bit more. I had a couple nice little eagle looks on the front nine."
“My body feels pretty good,” Woods said. “You know, this is going to be a long haul either way. I wish I would have played a little bit better this week to make it a little bit easier on me next week to try to get into East Lake, but this is going to be—if I play well, four out of five weeks, so it’s going to be a busy stretch either way.”
