Sunday not special for Woods in 10


Tiger Woods is off to a better start on Sunday at The Barclays, although we’re not sure there was anywhere to go but up after Saturday’s triple-bogey start, and he’s climbed into a share of 12th place through five holes.

If the golf world is searching for signs of quantifiable progress in the great comeback, consider Woods’ 2 under par start is well ahead of his final-round scoring average this season, which has soared to 72.71 which is the highest by far of his career and just the fifth time since 1997 his closing average has even been over 70.
