Golf Tiger Woods could add Wyndham Championship to schedule if PGA goes well

Tiger Woods may be forced to play in the Wyndham Championship if he wants to make the playoffs.

Tiger Woods will consider playing the Wyndham Championship, if he performs well enough at the PGA Championship next week.

Woods looked sharp at times as he tied for 18th at last week's Quicken Loans National, but the fact remains, he is on the outside looking in this year's FedEx Cup play-offs.

The 14-time major winner currently sits 185th in the FedEx Cup rankings, 85 spots outside of the cut-off to make the play-offs.

A good performance at the PGA Championship could get him within touching distance, which could lead to Woods making a schedule change and play at Wyndham in Greensboro, North Carolina for the first time in his career.

"Playing well in the PGA, that determines whether or not I play Wyndham [Championship] and obviously the rest of the FedEx Cup play-offs," Woods said on Monday.

Woods has only tallied 147 FedEx Cup points in his nine events this season and currently sits 379 points behind Jason Dufner, who is currently sitting in the 100th and final play-off spot.

Unlike regular tournaments, major championship winners are awarded 600 points, which would make Woods a virtual lock for the post-season. But he has not shown enough consistent form to think that is possible.

Whether it is as a player or just as a host, Woods will be at attendance for the Deutsche Bank Championship.

"I'll be there," Woods said. "I have my normal duties as tournament host, and my foundation runs the event. Hopefully, I can get off my butt and get into the top 100 and play the event."
