Tiger Woods Cards Even-Par 71 To Open The Northern Trust

Tiger Woods says winless 2018 season still ranks among his best ever'no doubt

He is undaunted by the prospect of having to play three consecutive tournaments for the first time in more than five years to qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship.

Tiger Woods' first crack at the FedExCup Playoffs in five years got off to a lackluster start with an even-par 71 during the first round of The Northern Trust in Paramus, N.J.

Koepka doesn't believe that's the case.

The Queenslander won the 2015 event at nearby Plainfield Country Club and his 10 appearances have yielded five top-six finishes and nine top-25s.

But, ranked sixth on the points standings, Day has again given himself a red-hot chance at becoming the first Australian to claim the FedEx Cup crown.

"And I did that pretty well today".

"How many times have we all purchased fights, whether it's MMA or boxing, whatever it may be", Woods said.

He said Wednesday that while crowds have cheered him on with similar fervor to years past, he's felt a different sort of tenor in 2018.

"I left from to go see a specialist about what are my options", Woods said. "I just need to worry about myself and try to get myself in position come Atlanta, and from there we'll see what we can do".

OSU said investigators interviewed more than 40 witnesses and reviewed thousands of documents during the two-week investigation. In June, 2016, Meyer had Zach Smith attend drug rehab for addiction to a stimulant prescription drug used to treat ADHD.

Playing with Woods at the play-offs opener at Ridgewood Country Club is Australia's Marc Leishman and Englishman Tommy Fleetwood. The 14-time major champion is playing in The Northern Trust in New Jersey.

Brooks Koepka already can count on one award this year.

The Web.com playoffs include this weekend's tournament, the DAP Championship in Beachwood, Ohio, the Albertson's Boise Open, and Web.com Tour Championship in Atlantic Beach, Florida. Rickie Fowler, Henrick Stenson, and Bud Cauley all withdrew due to injuries, and Rory McIlroy and Patrick Rodgers withdrew to get some rest.

The top 125 are eligible for the Northern Trust, while only 100 will advance to next week's Dell Championship near Boston. "I didn't know if I was ever going to play again".

A lot has gone right for Koepka in a year that began so wrong.

A partially torn left wrist tendon kept him out for almost four months, including the Masters.

"And I probably haven't done the best job at that". "I wasn't thinking about the tour, and now here I'm contending in major championships and had a chance to win a couple major championships". Months later, his return was nothing short of incredible. Three weeks later at Shinnecock Hills, he became the first player in 29 years to win back-to-back in the U.S. Open.

"I'd take a second place in that tournament every year if it meant I won the FedEx Cup every year, but I'd like a first place in the FedEx Cup more".

"You get in the rough in a lot of these courses, especially this week, and you're just hacking out to get to the front edge of the green and making par", he said.
