Woods’ playoff run ends in Chicago
Sunday, September 12, 2010
LEMONT, Ill. – For the first time in his career, Tiger Woods won’t be playing a tournament because he’s not invited.
Woods got off to a rugged start Sunday in the BMW Championship and shot 1-under 70, leaving him too far back to get into the top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings and qualify for the playoff finale at the Tour Championship.
It will be the third time in five years that Woods has not played the Tour Championship. He missed in 2006 when he cut his season short, and in 2008 while recovering from knee surgery. This time, he’s not going to East Lake because he’s not eligible.
His next tournament will be the Ryder Cup.
Woods played with Phil Mickelson, who shot 67. It was their 26th time playing in the same group, and their head-to-head record is now even – 11-11-4.
