Tigers biggest threats


NORTON, Mass. – Tiger Woods enters the Deutsche Bank Championship with his top spot on the FedEx Cup playoff points list threatened by only four players.

Steve Stricker, Heath Slocum, Zach Johnson and Kenny Perry are the only players who can pass Woods in the standings this week.

Stricker can pass Woods with a victory at TPC Boston, although Woods would need to finish third or worse. Stricker is also the only player in the field who can pass Woods with a second-place finish, but only if Woods finished 27th or worse.

Slocum can leap by Woods with a win and a fourth-place finish or worse by Tiger, and Johnson can overtake Woods with a victory and a 12th-place finish or worse by Woods.

Perry can take the top spot with a victory if Woods finishes 32nd or worse.
