They’re building up to playing for a $10 million first prize in the FedEx Cup playoffs, and all it takes is Tiger Woods saying he “plans” to play some tournaments this fall, after the FedEx, and he absolutely owns the news cycle.
The golf world, they say, has moved on from Tiger. I might have thought so, too … but without even a press conference, with nothing but four paragraphs on his Website, Tiger is so back. And who would think it’s not good news?
The top 70 in FedEx points are moving on to the third stop in the Cup finals at the BMW Championship at Crooked Stick this weekend. Jason Day is the defending champion here, and a repeat would be a huge leg up in the FedEx race. They’ll skip a week, then finish it up Sept. 22-25 in Atlanta, when the field is down to 30. Jordan Spieth won in Atlanta last year — won the $10 mill, too. Was that just last year?
This just in: Tiger Woods might be teeing it up again.
