TPC Boston did not hold the event last year, after the FedEx Cup was reduced from four events to three. That change led the event — formerly called the Deutsche Bank Championship and the Dell Technologies Championship — to alternate every year with Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, N.J. The event is open to the top 125 golfers in the FedEx Cup standings, and the third and fourth rounds will air on CBS.MORE NEWS: I-Team: Nora Baston To Be Named New Boston Police Commissioner; Dennis White Challenging Removal
Woods did play in the tournament the last time it was held in Boston in 2018, finishing tied for 24th at 7-under. Bryson DeChambeau won that tournament with a score of 16-under, beating Justin Rose by two strokes.
