Woods, who has not qualified for the post-season since 2013, lies 47th in the FedEx Cup standings right now.

The 14-time major champion is teeing up at this  week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone, a venue he has won on a record eight times.

Assuming Woods plays the BMW Championship (Sept. 6-9), it would mark the first time in his most recent return that he has played three consecutive weeks, although he did play a stretch of four out of five events on Tour this past February and March.

Woods has moved back inside the world's top 50 following his recent ties for fourth and sixth at the Quicken Loans National and Open Championship respectively.

The former world number one remains outside of the automatic positions in the United States Ryder Cup team for their clash against Europe at Le Golf National in late September, but he is very much expected to receive one of captain Jim Furyk's four picks. 

Woods remains the only player in the 11-year history of the Tour's postseason to win the FedExCup twice, doing so in 2007 and 2009.
