Tiger Woods has two more chances: FedEx Cup and Ryder Cup
August 23, 2010

Tiger Woods has confirmed his participation in the first FedEx Cup playoff event 'The Barclays', which will begin next Thursday, August 26th.

It’s hard to believe that the American professional golfer will be the favorite in the sportsbook companies to win this tournament, considering that Woods has failed to win any title in the nine tournaments he has played in this season.

Woods arrives to this tournament after finishing No. 28 in the last Grand Slam of the season, the PGA Championship.

While in the Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, Woods finished in the No.78 place out of 80 contenders, the worst performance in his 14-year career.

Tiger has managed to overcome his personal problems, but has failed to achieve the high level that led him to become the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking.

During this season, Woods’ performances have been so weak that he did not get the points required for direct qualification to the U.S. Ryder Cup Team.

The first eight places for the Ryder Cup belong to Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, Dustin Johnson, Jeff Overton, and Matt Kuchar.

For his part, Woods is just waiting for the Ryder Cup captain, Corey Pavin, to include him in the list of the four 'Captain's picks'.

Pavin has said that Woods could be one of the four selected golfers to be part of the team that will face Europe next October 1st.

"Tiger is obviously the number one player in the world and therefore is among the first on my list," said the captain of the U.S Team.

Finally, Woods could regain his high level of play at the FedEx Cup playoffs event, considering that he was the winner of this tournament in 2007 and 2009.
