2021 Notes: Played in 25 PGA Tour events, making 14 cuts with three top-ten finishes. Was 113th in the FedExCup standings. Missed the cut in his attempt to defend his U.S. Open title. After shooting rounds of 74-74, Woodland revealed that he had a torn labrum in his left hip, which was giving him a lot of pain. Woodland says he has dealt with labrum issues in his left hip for a long time and has treated it with injections. But it flared up again, and he suspects the COVID-19 pandemic that shut down golf for three months played a role. When golf returned, he played seven out of nine weeks, which probably was too much. After a month's rest played at the CJ Cup @ Shadow Creek and finished 72nd. The next week at the Zozo Championship @ Sherwood, he was three-under after the first seven holes but was forced to withdraw with a back injury. Woodland took some time off after missing the cut at the Mayakoba Golf Classic and on his return at The American Express, said he was feeling better, not 100%, but he played pain-free. In the time off, Woodland worked with his team on a recovery and conditioning plan that included work with a new chiropractor and what he called "a lot of maintenance." Unfortunately for Woodland, after missing the cut at The Players Championship, he tested positive for COVID-19, forcing him out of the Honda Classic and WGC-Technologies Match Play. In his first start, when he got better, he finished T-6th at the Valero Texas Open, nine shots back of winner Jordan Spieth. At Wells Fargo, was co-leader after 36 holes and went into the final round a shot out of the lead. Shot 71 to finish 5th, three shots back of winner Rory McIlroy. Was 7th at the Barracuda Championship, 12 points back of winner Erik van Rooyen. In the FedExCup Playoffs was 74th at the Northern Trust.

The next week was T-5th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, two shots back of winner Scottie Scheffler. Finished T-8th at the Valero Texas Open, four shots back of winner J.J. Spaun.

2023 Notes: He played in 24 PGA Tour events, making 18 cuts with two top-ten finishes. He was 94th in the FedExCup standings. He held a share of the lead after a first-round 65 at THE CJ CUP in South Carolina before finishing T-67th. He was T-9th at the Cadence Bank Houston Open and Genesis Invitational. His game struggled, and soon after he finished T-27th at the Wyndham Championship, he announced that he would undergo surgery on Sept. 18 for a brain lesion on his brain that led to seizures and anxiety. While he knew about the lesion earlier, medication proved insufficient to treat it. Seeing the medicines were not working, Woodland promptly decided to opt for surgery. The procedure was a success, and a majority of the tumor was removed from his brain.
2024 Notes: Just 115 days after the surgery he returned at the Sony Open in Hawaii, Woodland was back to work with a strong showing of support. It has been a long slug as he missed the cut at the Sony Open, Farmers insurance and WM Phoenix. He made his first cut finsihing T-39th at the Genesis Initational. His best finish was T-21st at the Texas Children's Houston Open.
