Something about this photo of Tiger Woods is off

Tiger at risk of losing locker room

Five wins. No majors. Yet the number that might resonate most for Tiger Woods in 2013 is three, as in rules violations. Two were his responsibility for not knowing the rules. He took relief from an embedded lie in a sandy area covered with vines in Abu Dhabi -- except a free drop was not allowed in the sand. The two-shot penalty assessed after his round caused him to miss the...

Tiger seeks validation as golf's POY

There are ten million reasons for Tiger Woods to play well in the PGA Tour's season finale. Well, ten million and one. The world No. 1 leads the FedEX Cup points race going into this week's Tour Championship and, if the mathematical gyrations go well for him at East Lake this week, could very well be $10 million richer. But Woods isn't at the spiritual home of Bobby...

Woods thinks role of TV needs further review

Tiger Woods was asked twice about his position on television viewers able to call in possible rules infractions. He never answered that question directly. That's not to suggest he had nothing to say about the role of TV. Woods, who met with PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem before his news conference Wednesday at the Tour Championship, said there needs to be a time limit on...

Woods is pissed off at BMW Chip

As much of the field jockeys to try and get inside the top 30 of the FedEx Cup standings to secure a spot in the Tour Championship, a star-studded top of the leaderboard will play for a bit more Sunday at the BMW Championship. Jim Furyk will carry a one-shot lead into the final round over Steve Stricker, while the likes of Brandt Snedeker (two back), Zach Johnson (three back) and...

More than $10 million on line at Tour Championship

No matter what happens at the Tour Championship, Tiger Woods is assured of being No. 1 in the world and No. 1 on the PGA Tour money list. Everything else is up for grabs. Woods has five wins this year, and no one else has more than two. Even so, the parity among top players this year is illustrated by how many of them have something to play for at East Lake when the Tour Championship...

Tiger's year: 5 wins, 0 majors, 3 rules violations

Stenson takes lead at East Lake

Henrik Stenson looked like he couldn't miss Thursday in the Tour Championship. Tiger Woods didn't make a thing. Stenson ran off five birdies over a six-hole stretch on the front nine at East Lake. His last birdie from 4 feet on the 18th hole gave him a 6-under 64 and a one-shot lead over Adam Scott. Stenson and Scott only have to win the Tour Championship to capture the...
