Thanks to the processing power of ShotLink we know Tiger Woods is still safely within the top 100 on the projected FedEx Cup points list, and on pace to qualify for the second postseason event next week in Boston – but not by much.
Woods triple bogeyed his first hole on Saturday, was 4 over at the turn and struggled to a 72 in Round 3 and is tied for 28th.
“The first shot was basically my (old) swing. I’m just making changes now. Early stages of it and (I’m) hitting shots I haven’t hit,” Woods said of his tee shot at the first hole that sailed some 60 yards left of the fairway.
He’s currently projected to finish 81st on the points list and Tour number crunchers figured the world No. 1 needs to finish between 50th and 57th place to advance.
Unfortunately, Corey Pavin isn’t keeping any “projected” Ryder Cup points to help make his picks, but there’s a good chance he’s hoping for something a little more encouraging than a tie for 50th from his star in waiting.
