Tiger Woods’ 2019 PGA Tour season has officially come to an end following today’s disappointing final round at the BMW Championship at Medinah Course No. 3.
The 15-time major champion came into today’s round needing a big performance in order to qualify for the Tour Championship. He didn’t get it.
Woods, who came into Sunday’s final round at -7, needed something in the low-to-mid 60s in order to have a chance at finishing in the top 10. Woods shot an even par final round, finishing at -7 for the tournament in a tie for 38th.
This means Woods will not advance in the FedEx Cup. His season is over.
Woods’ season included a win at The Masters, a missed cut in two majors and three top 10 finishes in 12 starts.
Tiger Woods finishes his 2018-19 PGA Tour season with 12 starts. Just three top-10s and missed the cut in two majors. And none of it can be considered a disappointment, considering he won the Masters and claimed a 15th career major title.

“It was a little bit frustrating. Didn’t have the short game I needed to make a run,” Woods said after his final round.

Woods could still play again in 2019, as he’s the captain of the United States’ Presidents Cup team, though it’s unclear if he’ll pick himself after a disappointing finish to the year.
