When will Tiger Woods play again? After a T-17 finish at the Masters, Woods said it would be “a while.”
Woods’ injured wrist doesn’t appear to be an issue moving forward, with agent Mark Steinberg telling ESPN.com that his client is “fine” after hitting a hidden tree root with this second shot from the pine straw at the ninth hole in the final round of the Masters.
So, what’s Tiger Woods’ 2015 schedule going to look like from here? It would seem to break out this way:
WGC-Cadillac Match Play — Only the top 64 players in the Official World Golf Ranking as of Monday will be eligible. Woods, at 101st in the world this week, will not qualify.
The Players Championship — Woods, the 2013 champion here, is expected to play.
Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial — There is a rumor going around that Woods is considering playing at Hogan’s Alley. However, it’s just that at this point. Woods typically plays in the Wells Fargo Championship, played this year the week prior to Colonial. Woods’ TigerJam event in Las Vegas is that week, though, which will keep Charlotte off the schedule.
the Memorial Tournament — This is a typical Woods stop. He has the most wins in event history.
U.S. Open — Barring injury, Woods will compete in the U.S. Open. He’s exempt as the 2008 champion.
The Open Championship — Woods won the 2000 and 2005 Open Championship at this year’s host, the Old Course at St. Andrews.
Quicken Loans National — Woods’ event in the D.C. area heads to a new venue, Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Virginia, which has been home for several Presidents Cups. Woods will be there.
WGC-Bridgestone Invitational — Tiger Woods isn’t eligible to play in this event.
PGA Championship — It’s a major. Woods is in.
Wyndham Championship — Woods said at the Quicken Loans National that he’s entertaining the idea of playing in Greensboro for the first time. Will he do it?
