Tiger Woods had a disappointing week at the Tour Championship at East Lake. He sits at 3-over par and tied for 26th place with Brandon de Jonge. More importantly, Tiger is out of contention for the FedEx Cup and a $10 million bonus.
Still, Woods sits in position to finish in the top two overall and a $3 million paycheck – not too shabby.
After his 1-under 69 on Saturday, Tiger spoke about his day and the week off leading to the President’s Cup.
“It’s nice to get the week off, but I want to go in there playing well and shooting some good scores,” Woods said, according to ESPN.com’s Bob Harig. “I didn’t hit the ball well today. I kept hitting everything to the right. It wasn’t that far off, but it just kept spinning over to the right.
“At least I was able to putt well today. It was nice. I made some nice putts.”
Henrik Stenson leads the field at East Lake, currently holding a four stroke lead after carding a 1-under 69 on Saturday – and is in position to capture the $10 million FedEx bonus.
As for Woods, he still sits 4 major titles behind Jack Nicklaus for the all-time lead (18). While he remains steady and constantly finishes strong – he is still ranked number 1 in the world after five victories this year – Tiger seems to constantly fade on the big stage as he gets older. Will he make it? Will he win even one more Major? Time will tell.
