PGA National (Champion Course)

The Loop

It's imperative that Tiger Woods plays the fall PGA Tour schedule. Here are three reasons why.

August 18, 2015

The news of Tiger Woods playing this week's Wyndham Championship has been treated like the Beatles arriving at JFK in 1964. In truth, it's more akin to Huey Lewis and the News performing at your local county festival in 2015.

Yet, many believe Woods still has a comeback bid in him, which, if we're continuing our music comparisons, would be Tina Turner's Private Dancer album (I'm sure Tiger is thrilled at such a parallel).

Competing at Greensboro is the first step in that return, but it will be for naught if it's Tiger's final tour appearance in 2015. If Woods really wants to get things going, he needs to clear his itinerary and plan to play in the PGA's fall events.

It's a juncture of the calendar that's been mostly foreign to Woods, as, historically, he's spent this time away from the sport. Of course, the Tiger of the past and the one of the present reside on separate ends of the golf spectrum.
