Golf World Executive Editor Ron Sirak is in Norton, Massachusetts for the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. Tiger Woods’ final round scoring average in 2012 is significantly higher than what it has been in past years and Sirak said the biggest reason for this can be found in the putter. It seems as though Tiger loses his confidence with the putter in the final round and that loss of confidence could be in relation to all of the changes he has been going through in his game and his swing. You never know but the fact that the final round this week is on Monday could end up helping Tiger.

Both players have turned in great performances so far in the FedExCup Playoffs and a good round today could mean that they will be going to Medinah later this month.
Luke Donald showed why Twitter can get you in trouble. He intended to send out a private message to someone but it was released publicly.

Donald has released an apology to Hanse and he will have to change his phone number.
