Tiger Woods' 2018-19 PGA Tour season officially came to an end on Sunday afternoon, when the 15-time major champion failed to qualify for the Tour Championship following a disappointing final round at the BMW Championship.

It was quite the year for Woods, who returned to major prominence with a win at The Masters, though he failed to make too much noise outside of Augusta.

When will we be seeing Woods next?

Woods confirmed following his final round at the BMW Championship that the only official PGA Tour event he'll play the rest of the year is the ZOZO Championship in Japan.

“I’m excited to play in the inaugural ZOZO Championship in October, and return to Japan, one of my favorite countries," Woods said earlier this year. "It’s going to be a fun fall."

The event will take place Oct. 24-27.

The major question for Woods, though, is the President's Cup. Woods is a captain and will be able to pick himself.

But will he?

“It's going to come down to the top eight guys, myself and my vice captains about who are the next four slots,” Woods said, “and whether that's me and three other guys, or it's just four other guys.”

Golf Channel outlined the current roster makeup:

The group of players currently inside the top eight includes Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Xander Schauffele, Matt Kuchar, Webb Simpson, Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Cantlay.

If those eight remain the same four days from now, then notable names like Gary Woodland (ninth), Tony Finau (10th), Rickie Fowler (11th), Patrick Reed (12th), Woods (13th), Phil Mickelson (15th) and Jordan Spieth (27th) will need a pick to make the team.

When Woods is playing well, he's clearly deserving of a spot. But his game has been anything but consistent since his win at The Masters.

The President's Cup takes place from Dec. 9 to Dec. 15.
