Tiger Woods commits to first three FedEx Cup playoff events

FedEx Cup points leader Tiger Woods will compete in the PGA Tour's playoff opener next week at The Barclays.

Woods made the commitment official on his website on Monday, also announcing his intent to play in the Deutsche Bank Championship and BMW Championship. He is assured to get into each of those three tournaments, reserved for the top 125, 100 and 70 in FedEx Cup points, respectively.

The Barclays moves this year to Bethpage State Park's Black Course, home to the 2002 and '09 U.S. Open. Woods won the '02 Open and finished T-6 seven years later.

As constituted, Woods has only played in The Barclays twice, in 2009 and 2010. Woods skipped the event in 2007, did not play due to injury in 2008 and did not qualify for the FedEx Cup playoff last season.
