The tale of the tape, as Tiger Woods weighs his options concerning a trip to Greensboro, N.C. and a spot in The Wyndham Championship……
from Steve Elling at www.cbssports.com:
As Woods prepares to play for the first time in three months this week, Woods stands 135th in FedEx Cup points with three PGA Tour events remaining before the cutoff date for the so-called playoff series. Only the top 125 in points advance, which means two-time FedEx champion Woods needs to piece together some fast results at the Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship next week in Atlanta.
Otherwise, there’s only one more stop — the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C., an event that few would ever have envisioned being on Woods’ radar screen.
Wyndham tournament director Mark Brazil had lunch with Woods at Firestone Country Club on Wednesday, though he says they never discussed the Greensboro tournament. However, Brazil has been in touch with Mark Steinberg, Woods’ agent, about the possibility of Woods playing at the second-tier tour stop.
“I think it’s a really small, outside chance that he’ll play here, to be honest,” Brazil said Thursday. “But say he’s hitting it well and not scoring, feeling pretty good about how he is playing and wannts to give it a go, we’ll be ready for him if he decides to come.”
Woods’ camp is clearly exploring the possibility of playing.
“I have been in contact with Mark Steinberg about what the chances are and what needs to happen,” Brazil said.
