The end came quicker than he wanted — and likely expected — and undoubtedly Tiger Woods was disappointed in not being able to qualify for next week’s Tour Championship.
But he has the Masters, and that is a pretty good way to look back on the 2019 season.
“Very special to wIn my 15th major and get my fifth jacket,” Woods said after his season came to an end Sunday at Medinah Country Club.
“Those are special moments, and to be able to have an opportunity like that … and the rest of the tournaments I didn’t really play as well as I wanted to, but at the end of the day, I’m the one with the green jacket.”
Woods was unable to make a run during the final round of the BMW Championship, where he shot a final-round 72 Sunday and needed much lower in order to move up enough spots in the FedEx Cup standings to be among the top 30 players who qualified for the season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta.
His tie for 37th ended up being his worst finish of the year in tournaments in which he made the cut. His previous worst was a tie for 30th at the Players Championship.
