Tiger Woods gains entry to Tour Championship, US Open with performance at BMW Championship

4:19 PM ET

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — It was pointed out to Tiger Woods on Monday after he shot 65 at the BMW Championship that he had qualified for the 2019 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, eliciting a smile and a quip: “Yep, I won’t have to ask for one,” he said.

Woods was referring to the special exemption that he was sure to get and unlikely to need in order to play in the championship he’s won three times.

By finishing tied for sixth at the BMW, Woods qualified for the Tour Championship, one of the exemptions that was all but a formality after he opened the tournament with a 62 at Aronimink Golf Club.

The rain-plagued event concluded Monday and Woods made another run at his 80th PGA Tour title, coming up three shots short of a playoff won by Keegan Bradley. But it helped him finish 20th in the FedEx Cup points, meaning a spot in the 30-player Tour Championship next week.

It will be his first appearance in the season-ending tournament in five years.
