Woods eyes FedEx Cup hat-trick, Northern Trust entry confirmed

Tiger Woods has confirmed he will play at next week's Northern Trust as he seeks a third FedEx Cup trophy.

The tournament in Boston is the first of three playoff events that will bring the coronavirus-affected 2019-20 PGA Tour season to a conclusion.

Woods, winner of the FedEx Cup in 2007 and 2009, would be the first player to claim the honour three times.

He confirmed his participation at TPC Boston on Twitter on Friday, writing: "Excited to head to Boston for @TheNTGolf and start the #FedExCup Playoffs."

Woods, A 15-time major winner, finished in a tie for 37th at the recent US PGA Championship.

The American has been increasingly selective with his schedule as he manages his workload to mitigate injury and fitness concerns.

Indeed, the Northern Trust would be just the sixth event of the season for the 44-year-old, who will need to force his way into the top 70 of the FedEx Cup standings to progress to the next event, the BMW Championship, at the end of the month.
