Sep 23 - 5:29 PM

Overnight leader Tiger Woods is 1-under thru 12 holes during round four of the TOUR Championship, reaching 12-under on the week to lead the field by four strokes on the live leaderboard with just six holes remaining.

The Sunday pins at East Lake Golf Club are tough to find but Woods has done well to set up seven scoring chances from inside 20 feet. He's only converted on one of those chances but it's allowed him to play relatively stress-free as he attempts to win for the first time since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. His steady striking is currently gaining 1.008 strokes approaching-the-green in R4. His biggest asset has been the flat stick, though, currently ranked 1st in the field in strokes gained putting (+5.411 SG:Putting for the week). Heading down the home stretch, Woods has a four-shot lead with his closest competitor being Billy Horschel who just birdied the 15th to reach 8-under. Woods is certainly in the driver's seat although he currently projects at No. 2 in the FedExCup race. Woods would certainly be happy to settle for a tournament victory and let someone let enjoy that $10 Million bonus.

Making his tournament debut, FedExCup leader and World No. 8 Bryson DeChambeau navigated a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to conclude on 1-under 279, up two places on the live leaderboard to 19th place, a distant 11 in arrears of the leader on the course Tiger Woods.

The 25-year-old took over the season-long points race lead (for the first time) with his second win of the campaign at THE NORTHERN TRUST and solidified the pole position after going back to back at the Dell Technologies. He entered with a 1,398-point cushion over No. 2 on the list Justin Rose and if he won this week, would become just the second player to win the FEC as the 1-seed, joining Woods in 2007 and 2009. Even without a win, the SMU product had a reasonable chance of winning the $10-million bonus with a top-6 finish but after opening with 71-75, was T27 in the 30-man field. He rebounded with weekend rounds of 66-67 and is projected to drop two spots to 3rd in the FEC standings. The California native heads off to his first Ryder Cup after finishing the season with nine top 10s in 26 events, including three wins, both career bests.
Sep 23 - 4:38 PM

Attempting to win his first event since 2013, Tiger Woods is 1-under thru 6 during round four of the TOUR Championship, extending his lead in the process to five strokes on the live leaderboard.

Playing alongside Rory McIlroy in the final group, Woods made a statement with a birdie at the par-4 first hole (10'3"). The scoring chances have been tough to come by since then but he did maintain momentum with a par-saver from just outside 10 feet at the par-4 fourth. Woods found trouble at the par-5 sixth when his approach went over the green to give himself a tough around-the-green shot. He stubbed it as he was trying to be delicate on these fast, bermuda surfaces. Woods still salvaged par at the hole. Starting the day with a three-shot lead, he now finds himself with a five-shot lead over Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose. He is also projected at 3rd in the FedExCup standings. Woods is 1/3 of the way through his final round with plenty of drama still to come.
