Strong FedEx Cup finish key for Woods
Tiger Woods is now focused on finishing the year well at the FedEx Cup play-offs after a disappointing Open Championship.
The 43-year-old, who claimed his 15th major at this year's Masters, entered the Royal Portrush showpiece among the favourites but did not make the weekend after rounds of 78 and 70.
The former world number one has failed to push on after his Augusta heroics, playing just four events and missing the cut on two occasions.
Woods is currently 27th in the FedEx Cup standings and will hope to make it all the way to the final event of the campaign at East Lake, where he memorably claimed the title last year to finally get back into the winner's circle.
Next up for the Florida resident will be the Northern Trust, beginning on August 8 and Woods hopes to do well towards the end of the year before enjoying a long stretch away from the sport.
"I'm going to take a couple of weeks off and get ready for the playoffs," he told ESPN. "We've got the playoffs coming up, and anything can happen. "Last year I almost stole the whole FedEx Cup at the very end. So [I'll] get ready for those events. And after that then have a break."
