If Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson hadn’t gotten enough of each other during the first two rounds of the BMW Championship last week, they will get another chance when the Tour Championship kicks of on Thursday at West Lake Golf Course near Atlanta. Both players have been number one and two on the FedEx Cup rankings since Stenson’s convincing win at the Duetsche Bank Championship a couple of weeks ago. Of course, with five wins on the season, Tiger Woods has been on the top of the rankings for quite some time.
