SHEBOYGAN, Wis. -- As the massive storms fell the ended play for the day at the PGA Championship, Tiger Woods decided to extend his season -- no matter what happens with the rest of his suspended second round at Whistling Straits.
On the Friday deadline, Woods committed to play in next week's Wyndham Championship for the first time.
Woods is 1 over par on his round through 13 holes and had to make a decision within 30 minutes of the call of play as to whether or not he would play in the final regular season event before the FedEx Cup playoffs. He chose to give the Greensboro, N.C., event a try.
The 14-time major winner came into the PGA Championship at 186th in FedEx Cup points, needing to crack the top 125 to earn a berth into the first stage of the playoffs at The Barclays. Assuming Woods misses the cut here, as he's projected to do, he'll need somewhere in the area of 300 FedEx Cup points to sneak in the playoffs. He would need to finish solo second or better at the Wyndham to qualify.
