Two-time FedExCup champion Tiger Woods (2007, 2009) has officially committed to play in THE 2020 NORTHERN TRUST joining Rory McIlroy (2016, 2019) as the only two-time winners of the season-ending award in the field for the first FedExCup Playoffs event.

Woods is 47th in the FedEx Cup standings and is set to drop a few places following the conclusion of this week's Wyndham Championship.

Should Woods play all three play-off events then it would be the first time he played in three consecutive weeks since the same period in 2018, when he rounded off his season by ending a five-year winless run and claiming his 80th of 82 PGA Tour titles.

Following the Northern Trust, the top 70 in the FedEx Cup rankings will be eligible to participate in the BMW Championship.

In his last start, Woods posted a final round three-under-par 67 to finish tied for 37th at the PGA Championship where his surgically-repaired back was not an issue despite the chilly weather at San Francisco's Harding Park.

The Northern Trust is expected to feature each of the 125 players who have qualified off the FedEx Cup points list.

"Well, that's potentially what could happen, and we've been training for that", said Woods.

"We'll be pushing it hard to make sure that I can stay strong and have the endurance to keep on going".

Of the six times Woods has played in THE NORTHERN TRUST (2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2018, 2019), he has finished no worse than T38 (2012) with the exception of a year ago when prior to the start of the second round in the 2019 event at Liberty National Golf Club, Woods had to withdraw citing a mild oblique strain.

Following which he had arthroscopic knee surgery and did not play again until last October's Zozo Championship victory in Japan, where he matched Snead's mark.
