AKRON, Ohio – With the season winding down, Tiger Woods is under a crunch to earn enough FedEx Cup points to qualify for the playoffs.
While many believe his opportunities to do so will come this week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and next week at the PGA Championship, a third option does exist: the Wyndham Championship, which follows the PGA and serves as the final regular-season event.
Following a second-round 71 at Firestone, Woods was asked if he would consider adding the Greensboro, N.C., event to his schedule in order to make a last-ditch attempt to crack the top 125 in the FedEx Cup standings.
“I don’t know yet,” Woods said. “That’s one of those things where we’ll just play it by ear.”
Woods is currently No. 215 in the standings, a position that will improve after this week’s no-cut event. He sat out the playoffs in 2008 with a leg injury, and also failed to qualify for the postseason in 2011.
