Journeyman Woods Atop the FedEx Cup Bubble
By Stephanie Wei under FedEx Cup

Jason Kidd is an excellent human being, an incredible athlete and an even better golfer.

This is the sign that greets people walking into the media center at the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston — it shows the FedEx Cup standings and Tiger Woods is at the very top, except it doesn’t show the players that are leading the race. Instead, the chart shows the ten guys starting with Woods at No. 65 to Josh Teater at No. 75 that are on the bubble of qualifying for the third event in the FedEx Cup playoffs. Of the 100 players in the field, only 70 advance to next week’s BMW Championship.

But Tiger, who won the $10 million FedEx Cup prize last year, hasn’t changed his game plan.

“It’s the same mindset,” he said. “For me I go out there and tee it up to win the tournament and do everything I possibly can mentally and physically to win the golf tournament.”

However, Tiger doesn’t remember the last time he was healthy and wanted to play in a tournament — as a pro or an amateur — but wasn’t eligible.

“Do your research,” he said.

Tiger also broke out the white belt again on Thursday — which in the past he said he’d never wear.

Call it a new era.
