Jordan opened this tournament to be only two off the lead, shooting a six underscore of 64. This 64 score matched his other lowest round for this season so far. That 64 was shot at the Genesis Open at Riviera several months ago. However, at Riviera, he finished by shooting 81 placing him in 51st position for that tournament.
Jordan seems to be having problems putting four rounds together so far this season. He has managed to put some good rounds this season in tournaments such as 66 at Pebble Beach, 65 at the colonial, managing a tie for third at the PGA, and a good showing the WGC-FedEx. Let us hope that maybe Jordan has found his grove and can win some more tournaments.
Patrick Rodgers opens Wyndham Championship Championship with a 63
Rogers, a former All American at Stanford, has had a pretty rough year with injuries to hisn wrist and thumb which prevented his playing for sixteen weeks.
He had high hopes at the RSM Classic by shooting a 61 and 62 for the final rounds only to have his opes for his first PGA Tour win to be dashed by losing in a playoff to Charles Howell III.
Patrick is still ranked 96th in the FedEx Cup, well in the 125 rankings. Let us hope he can have better luck in the future health wise.
Tiger Woods will be playing in the first FedEx Cup playoff event at the Northern Trust.
Tiger Woods has committed to playing in the first FedEx Cup playoff event, the Northern Trust, at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, N.J., next week.
After the bad start at the British Open, Tiger dropped some hints that he might skip playing in the first the three playoff tournaments.
Since his victory in the Masters in April, Woods has played just four tournaments and missed the cut in two of them. He noted at the British Open that he deliberately is playing fewer events in an effort to extend his career after his spinal-fusion surgery in 2017.
Tiger is currently ranked 27th on the FedEx Cup points list and is just one win short of tying Sam Snead’s record of 82 PGA career wins. Tiger has already won the FedEx Cup twice before his latest health problems.
