SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – It appears Tiger Woods may be four rounds away from his 2014-15 swan song.
Woods, who missed eight weeks this year as he struggled with his game, indicated on Tuesday at Whistling Straits that the PGA Championship could be his last event of the season unless something dramatic happens.
At 187th on the FedEx Cup points list Woods is 279 points outside the top 125 and would need to finish alone in second place or better to earn enough points to qualify for The Barclays, the first post-season stop.
Two weeks ago at the Quicken Loans National, he suggested he would consider playing the Wyndham Championship, next week’s stop and the final regular-season event, but on Tuesday he didn’t sound like a man who is prepared to add to his schedule.
“If I play well, I play well and I'll play in more events,” said Woods, who has never played the Wyndham Championship. “If I don't, then I have more time to practice and get ready for the following events for next season and obviously some of the things I do on a global level.”
Wyndham Championship tournament director Mark Brazil told GolfChannel.com that he’s spoken with Woods’ manager Mark Steinberg “several times” but he has not received any word on whether he will play the North Carolina stop.
Woods has until play is completed on Friday at the PGA Championship to commit to the Wyndham Championship.
