Tiger Notches Sixth Win of the Season

All is right in the golf world once again. Tiger Woods has all facets of his game under control and he dusted the field at The BMW Championship. Woods made his way around Cog Hill with an effortless 68 to finish with an eight stroke lead of Jim Furyk and Marc Leishman. Tiger actually won the tournament on Saturday with his course record 62. Playing in threesomes today due to a fog delay, Woods felt no pressure from his playing partners. Rookie Marc Leishman held up astounding well and shot 69 while Brandt Snedeker appeared to succumb to the pressure of the FedEx Cup race. Coming into the eighteenth hole Snedeker needed a bogey to qualify for next week’s Tour Championship. He missed his sixteen foot par putt, missed his bogey putt and took two more putts for a four putt triple bogey and played himself out of the Tour Championship.

This his Tiger’s six win of the season and it puts him back in the lead for the FedEx Cup points race. Steve Sticker is in second place, followed by Jim Furyk, Zach Johnson and Heath Slocum.

Congratulations to the US Walker Cup Team. They won their third straight Walker Cup with a 16 ½-9 ½ win over Great Britain and Ireland. Ricky Fowler and Peter Uihlein were the studs for the US Team as they won all four of their matches.
