Can He Qualify For The FedEx Cup Playoffs?
Yes, but Woods has little margin for error. As of now, the Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championships are the only tournaments on his schedule before the postseason begins, and he needs to pick up points if he's going to get within the top 125 spots (he's currently No. 135). Woods was criticized early in the year for a lack of events played in, but at this point, with his injuries, it's doubtful he's going to add to his schedule just to make the playoffs. At least, that seems like the logical move if he's thinking about his long-term goals. In the meantime, one top 25 should be enough to qualify for the postseason, which will begin at the Barclays Aug. 25. If he can make it through 72 holes, that shouldn't be too much of a problem considering he has three top 25s in the four stroke-play events he's completed this year.Sam Greenwood/Getty Images
