Tiger Woods, a day after narrowly making the cut, shot a bogey-free three-under 68 but still lamented his play at the Northern Trust in New Jersey on Saturday. The par-3's play an average of nearly 200 yards, with the shortest being the 155-yard fifteenth, and the longest being the 230-yard sixth. In the mix at a major for longer than he can remember, Cink finished with two birdies for a 67 to tie for fourth.
"That can get you jump-started next year", Hoge said.
That was especially true on this day, because almost all of the other big names in golf took advantage of the fantastic scoring conditions at Ridgewood in Paramus. N.J.
Former World No. 1 Adam Scott is 1 shot back at 9 under par through 36 holes. He starts the playoffs ranked 28th, while Johnson is ranked number one ahead of Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka. "We go back to how everyone received me at Tampa, that was very special and I had not received ovations and warmth like that".
"It's a massive month for me and it all starts here; I really need to play well and get myself to Atlanta", Smith said.
Hazard ‘ready for 50 or 60 minutes’ - Sarri
Hazard continues to be linked with leaving Stamford Bridge, with Real Madrid yet to replace Cristiano Ronaldo. Surprisingly, that would the most league appearances he has made in a season with the Toon.
"It was exciting to make a run but I lost by two at the end", Woods said.
Day will tee off at Northern Trust with a FedEx Cup rank of sixth, looking to move into the top-five seeds after three events as they can guarantee the $US10 million FedEx Cup bonus with a victory at the Tour Championship finale in late September. I guess everyone knows I've struggled and I've had some back pain and I've gone through four surgeries and I'm trying to work my way back. "I didn't do anything new, I just recommitted to what I was working on the past year".
Koepka said he has begun to take the FedEx Cup playoffs much more seriously, preparing the same way he does for major championships - right down to bringing along the same chef. Having said all of this, I think scrambling and scoring around-the-green will also be stats to take into consideration because it is inevitable that players will miss fairways and greens.
Even if he doesn't go on to win, it's already been a banner week for Mickelson. "I'm hoping this time he can come out on top", one fan said. "Whoever you play, it's the biggest sporting occasion in the world at that time, and for us being European and American, to have the chance to play in that and be a part of that, I think it's very special for us".
"I'm pretty good at taking each tournament as it comes and just focusing on that, and every player has their own processes or the things that they are working on at the time".
A birdie putt at the 13th got Woods to 2 under and he was in position to get on a roll when he knocked his approach at the 14th to 10 feet.
