Tiger Woods leads Tour Championship by three shots going into final round

Tiger Woods is back, alright.

Rose will be playing not only for the victory but also the FedExCup, which is worth $10m to the victor of the season-long PGA Tour points race. I'm not saying it's going to be a piece of cake.

"But I think for me, the way I look at tomorrow is that I have many scenarios in play".

Casey wasn't giving up.

Victory for Woods would cap a fine return to the top level this year following spinal fusion surgery in April 2017.

Sister Joan Cosar, an engineer, says, 'I think my brother has traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table'. Gosar's speech at a London rally for an extremist anti-Muslim group in July was unacceptable, his brother said.

Interested in Tiger Woods? Throughout this most recent comeback he's offered glimpses of the old guy, the guy whose name atop a leaderboard echoed through locker rooms for the better part of two decades. A two-putt birdie on the final hole gave him a 2-under-par 68 and a tie with Justin Rose.

Woods got off to a dream start, makings 3s on his first five holes and playing his first seven holes in 6 under.

Woods says he's looking forward to playing with McIlroy, particularly because it's been so long since they've done it while Woods was out. "He was running the tables there". "I was hitting it absolutely dead flush". He closed the front nine by leaving right an 11-foot putt for par and birdied just once on the back nine, a three on the par-four 12th set up by a 143-yard approach that stuck within eight feet. "It's hard to make birdies, and on top of that, it's hard to get the ball close". "We haven't done that that much of late because I've not been there. As intimidating as Woods" play has been this week there was an unmistakable sense of, let's call it curiosity. Both are more than capable of putting together the low round that would ruin Woods' plans. "Maybe", he allowed after a pause.

"It's all very well winning tournaments", Rose said. "Obviously his history, his statistics from this point are impeccable". An incessant combination of cheers, chatter and combustion follows him from green to tee, down the fairway, with moments of peace coming only during his shots. He finished second at the PGA Championship this August, losing to Brooks Koepka by two shots despite shooting a final round 64.

Nor was Rose being disrespectful.

Ryder cup too close to call, claims Tiger Woods
The next group of five players are at 4 under, all the way down until the final five players in the 30-man field are at even par. He enters East Lake ranked No. 20 in the FedEx Cup standings, and knows he faces an uphill climb to win the playoffs.

For Woods, that will clearly be the mindset. Given multiple chances to break through the victory ceiling he's failed to deliver the way he did before injury and multiple back procedures.

"I didn't really mis-hit a single shot today and I felt I had a lot of control over my shots".

UPDATE: So I guess we're doing this ...

Now, entering the final day of the final tournament of what is already his most successful season in a half-decade, Woods sits again in that once-familiar position while 12 under par at the Tour Championship at Atlanta's East Lake Golf Course. It's the bottom of the ninth, two outs and the bases are loaded for the 14-time major champion.

This game was an example of how much a threat Liverpool are from different types of attacking play. I am fine with him, I think he is fine with me and the situation, so that's all.
