Woods has tasted success before at Medinah, capturing the 1999 and 2006 PGA Championships on the course as well as five BMW Championships at nearby Cog Hill.

Winning the second FedEx Cup playoff event might be more of a chore.

"I'm going to have to make a lot of birdies", Woods said of his upcoming three rounds.

Woods said Wednesday that his body feels "so much better" than it did last week.

"I just need to clean up my rounds and get going", Woods said.

"It's weird", he said, via the Golf Channel.

"I like where my short game is at, too".

Countrymen Sungjae Im and Si Woo Kim opened their campaigns in the second of three FedExCup Playoffs events with matching 70s to lie in joint 36 position while Byeong Hun An was a further stroke back with a 71. Now 12 on the standings, he needs a projected top-four finish and other results to go his way to have a chance of making it to Royal Melbourne Golf Club in December. Points are also given to players who finish in the top 16 - meaning that's the threshold Woods needs to meet to have a chance to play on.

Tens of Thousands Celebrate Power-Sharing Deal
The constitutional declaration builds on a political declaration that was agreed by the military and protesters on July 17. Under the deal, a sovereign council, consisting of six civilians and five generals, will run the country until elections.

Tiger Woods said Wednesday he feels "way better" after withdrawing last week with an oblique strain, but major concerns remain around the 15-time major victor entering the BMW Championship.

The Masters victory capped an unbelievable comeback for Woods from spinal fusion surgery when it appeared his career might be over. Hideki Matsuyama (No. 33) and Jordan Spieth (No. 44) join Woods on the fringes, at risk of playing their final PGA tournament of 2019.

But Woods could never get past 2 under in the first round. His swing speed is down from a year ago and his scores up.

Should Woods make it to Atlanta, it would be hard to rule him out as a contender. Two weeks later, he tied for fifth in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and two weeks after that, he won the Masters for the fifth time.

When the first round in the Northern Trust was over, Woods said "that's just the way it is going to be". Core muscle strains often occur due to repetitive rotating.

Woods played the Players Championship the following week and tied for 30th.

Although Scott has not won an event anywhere in almost three years, he has twice been runner-up in 2019 and appears to be peaking at just the right time given the looming riches of the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs. He said it again the other day, this is the new normal.
