Tiger Woods is currently 111th in FedEx Cup points, which isn't good enough to make the 100-player field at the Deutsche Bank Championship, the second FedEx Cup playoff event. The tournament, held at the TPC Boston on Labor Day weekend since 2003, has enjoyed a close relationship with Woods over the years and contributes to Woods's charitable foundation.  Emily Kay of Examiner.com explains that the star of the show may be missing for what has become a Labor Day tradition:

The Deutsche Bank Championship and Tiger Woods’ appearance at the tourney that benefits his charitable foundation have been staples of Boston's Labor Day weekend golf scene since 2003, but that run could be in jeopardy after this year.Woods, who has played in each DB Championship except 2008, when he was recovering from knee surgery, will have to pick up his game if he hopes to tee it up at TPC Boston in September. The event is the second of four FedEx Cup playoffs, and Woods was ranked 111th in FedEx Cup points, not good enough to make the 100-player field.
"If it comes down to jobs at the bank or us sponsoring the golf tournament, it's not a fair fight," Waugh said. “[In this economy], you can’t take anything for granted anymore.”
Editors' Note: An earlier version of this post said that Woods was in danger of missing the playoffs altogether. As of Aug. 3, he would make the 125-man field for the first playoff event, the Barclays at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, N.J., which starts August 26.
