On one hand I just wrote about the media moving on from Eldrick and getting on with our lives with a new, younger generation of golfers. On the other hand, I like Tiger and want to see him make one last run and go out on a high note.
This is the first 36-hole lead Tiger has held since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, which also happened to be his last PGA Tour win. His 36-hole score of 129 is also the lowest he’s had since that same 2013 WGC-Bridgestone.
Tiger isn’t just chasing Jack Nicklaus’ major tournament wins record of 18, he’s also after Sam Snead’s all-time PGA Tour wins record of 82. Currently Woods has 79 wins, which is six more than Jack. A win at the Wyndham Championship would not only get him closer to that record, but would also extend his season. Tiger needs to win in order to have enough points to continue in the FedExCup playoffs and play in the Barclay’s.
Tiger will start his third round 2:00 PM Eastern.
