Tiger Woods had his A game working at The BMW Championship on Saturday. After a disappointing tie for eleventh finish at last week’s Deutsche Bank Championship, Woods was able to put together a course record 62 to pull away from the field at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club. His driving was good, his putting was great, his irons were dialed in and his sand game was perfect. See what happens when he gets pissed off? He takes it out on the field. Earlier in the week he spoke in a tentative tone when he talked of Cog Hill and the new greens he was about to face. It looks like a couple of rounds were all it took for him to figure them out. At one point he was three strokes back of the lead but his eight birdies, eagle and a lone bogey enabled him to blow away the rest of the field on Saturday.
Woods will play the final round paired with Brandt Snedeker who is tied for second with Rookie Mark Leishman. Get ready for a butt whipping Brandt. If Tiger is true to form, he’ll shoot mid sixties, steal Brandt’s lunch money, whip the field by a half dozen strokes, win the BMW and move back into first place in the FedEx Cup.
Say what you will about these contrived “playoffs” it has resulted in the best players in the world playing their butts off for three weeks in a row, and that’s never a bad thing. After Tiger wins today they take a week off before they meet for the Tour Championship.
