Tiger Woods 'proud' of season, eyes $10M FedEx Cup bonus

RETRANSMISSION TO CORRECT FROM A BIRDIE TO AN EAGLE- Tiger Woods reacts as he makes a eagle putt on the 18th green during the first round of the Tour

"I know a few things have to go my way to get my hands on the FedEx Cup", Smith said during a teleconference earlier this week.

"It was tough because we had a four-point lead starting out the day on Sunday and I worked my way back against Francesco (Molinari) and was one up and thought my match would be the deciding point, (but) some of the guys had some tough losses". Back in 2014, Blair secured his first PGA Tour card by finishing in second place in the last Web.com finals event.

"To come back from where I've come back from and to get here has been a pretty tall order and something I'm proud of", Woods said Wednesday before a practice round on the course, which has seen the front and back nine flipped since he last played the Tour Championship in 2013.

Woods sits 20th on the FedEx Cup rankings - but in his favor, Bill Haas came from 25th to clinch the prize in 2011. Bradley was once one of the game's most promising young players, but has gone through a period of extended struggles.

Woods already considers this a successful year just by making into the 30-man field at East Lake for the FedEx Cup finale, where everyone has a mathematical shot at capturing the $10 million bonus. "I hit so many quality shots all day, whether it was tee to green or it was putts".

This is his last chance.

Woods, 42, has acknowledged that winning is more hard than it has ever been with the amount of young talent on Tour.

If the system had been in place ahead of this week's Tour Championship, Bryson DeChambeau would begin on 10 under par, with Justin Rose eight under. This year, Dustin Johnson had the most points in the regular season by 83 points over Thomas.

'Fans are very familiar with golf leaderboards in relation to par, so they will have a clear understanding of the impact every shot makes during the final run for the FedEx Cup, ultimately leading to a singular champion without conflicting storylines'. I've been very close, and it's something that I really want to win, and I want to be the FedEx Cup champion.

Woods never followed a FedEx Cup title with a top-5 seed because he was recovering from knee surgery in 2008, and he was putting his personal life back together in 2010. "That's kind of nice that they're coming out and supporting this event and supporting me, as well".

Woods is back at East Lake this year, if still disoriented.

Once again, Fleetwood displayed his enormous talent with back-to-back 62s at Aronimink last week, and at one point shared the lead in the final round. Woods had the lead on the 11th hole at the British before fading to a tie for sixth. He had six finishes in the top 10.

The state of Woods' game - and more important, his back - has allowed him to look into the future in ways that he hasn't been able to in a number of years. The Tour Championship is his 18th event, his busiest schedule to date since 2012.

PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan believes the return of a fully-fit Tiger Woods has had a "tremendous and significant" impact both on and off the Golf course.
