Tiger Woods faces the risk of unattending the Tour Championship

"Super Tiger" Tiger Woods needs to reach the top of the BMW Championship 11 this week to have a chance to defend the Tour Championship title next week.

After withdrawing from the second Northern Trust last week, Woods dropped to 38th on the FedEx Cup score. He needs to return to the top 30 to qualify for the Championship Tour - the tournament where the US golfers are the defending champions.

According to the Golf Channel, Woods must at least rank 11th BMW Championship to qualify for the Top 30 FedEx Cup. This task is not simple because there are many competitors competing with the 43-year-old star. The numbers are Tommy Fleetwood, Hideki Matsuyama, Billy Horchel, Ian Poulter, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth and Francesco Molinari.

Last year, Woods held the top of the BMW Championship in the first round, before closing the FedEx Cup Playoffs event in seventh place. "I feel much better", the owner of 15 major titles shared about physical condition during the training round on August 13. "I treated and felt things were getting better. I thought I was good enough to play this week."

Tiger Woods spent 45 minutes training to coach Matt Killen, but still had to use back pain relief. Like in the Northern Trust, Woods has not practiced teeing. He spent about two hours training in the gym at the Medinah Country Club.

The BMW Championship is one of the most successful "Super Tigers" events. He has five championships and twice finished second after 17 appearances. This year's award takes place at the Medinah Country Club in Illinois. This is the arena that often brings Woods luck with two PGA Championship titles from 1999 and 2006.

In the first two rounds of this year's BMW Championship, Woods played in the same team as the two competitors competing for the top 30 FedEx Cups, C.T Pan and Billy Horschel. With 70 golfers attending, there was no cut.
