Tiger Woods enters this week's The Honda Classic ranked 179th in the FedExCup. Woods fell four spots in the standings after missing the cut at the Genesis Open.
Woods has 35 FedExCup points, which he earned with his T23 finish in his season debut at the Farmers Insurance Open. It took 365 FedExCup points to qualify for last season's Playoffs. Woods has not competed in the FedExCup Playoffs since finishing second in 2013. He is the only two-time winner of the FedExCup (2007, '09).
Patton Kizzire is the current FedExCup leader with 1,247 points. Andrew Putnam is No. 125 in the standings with 93 points. The top 125 after the Wyndham Championship qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs.
Woods actually rose in the Official World Golf Ranking, from No. 550 to 544, despite missing the cut at Riviera. He began the year ranked 656th.
This week's Honda Classic, which begins Thursday at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, is Woods' third start of the season. This is the first time since 2015, when he played 11 times, that Woods has made multiple starts on TOUR.
He has not announced his schedule after The Honda Classic.
