Tiger Woods poised to finish 2nd in FedEx Cup

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’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.
