Earlier this week the PGA Tourannounced a slew of changes to the 2019 FedEx Cup, with the most significant-and controversial-alteration regarding scoring at the Tour Championship. With play still underway, the duo hold a one-shot lead over Gary Woodland (66) at four under. With that being said, Woods has already proven that he can hang on the weekend this year. "The only hard part was getting my speed on the greens".
Tiger Woods reacts as he makes an eagle putt on the last.
Since returning officially to the US Tour in January after having spinal fusion surgery past year, Woods' 17 events have yielded two runner-up finishes among six top 10s and 11 top 25s.
Woods is still chasing that elusive first tournament win of the year, and it won't come easy.
"That round today (could have) easily been six or seven under; it turned into even par which is not what I needed to do (when) everyone is going low and birdies should be had".
Woods is still in the mix despite Xander Schauffele (64) surging into the outright lead at 13 under at the elite 70-man event - the penultimate leg of the $US67 million ($A93 million) FedEx Cup playoffs.
