A year ago, Xander Schauffele won the Tour Championship and Justin Thomas, the runner-up, won the FedEx Cup.

While Woods has yet to taste a tournament victory this year, Monahan said the former world number one had nevertheless had a huge impact, boosting television ratings and indirectly raising the profile of other players on tour.

The 25-year-old will make his debut at the 30-man finale at Atlanta's East Lake Golf Club on Thursday, where the top-five seeds on the standings can automatically claim the FedEx Cup with a Tour Championship victory.

"It's definitely not a bombers course; anyone can win here", Smith said.

East Lake is only part of the reward.

"That takes a lot off stress next year because you can pick and choose your events for the whole season and tailor it to peaking around the majors", Smith said. I've come close in a couple events and it's about putting it together at the right time. I didn't know how many tournaments I'd play in and the next [thing] you know I'm here in the Tour Championship. It was tough watching them celebrate, ' he said.

"I've never had it happen, it just kind of popped up". The beginning of the year was such an unknown, I didn't know if I would be able to make it to Florida and to play the Florida Swing. It could be any of those facets of the game, and I just haven't putt it all together at the same time. "That's something that'll hopefully come together this week". Injuries prevented Woods from playing many tournaments in 2014 and 2015, and he didn't play at all in 2016, so it's a little weird seeing him back.

Now, Woods is even fielding questions about whether he can envision representing the United States at the Olympics in Tokyo in two years.
