Woods thinks role of TV needs further review
Scott said sometimes he packs the green jacket in his luggage, “but I don’t mind carrying it around.”
LAST CHANCE: Steve Stricker (No. 6 seed) could finish second at the Tour Championship and still win the FedEx Cup if Tiger Woods is 16th or worse and the next four seeds finish out of the top 10. That would mean Stricker could capture the $10 million prize without ever winning a tournament this year.
It almost happened in 2010 with Paul Casey.
In the six previous FedEx Cups, only twice has a player won the cup without winning the Tour Championship _ Woods in 2009 (Phil Mickelson won the tournament) and Vijay Singh in 2008, when the points system was so messed up that Singh only had to complete four rounds at East Lake that week.
Stricker, meanwhile, is among 13 players at East Lake who are still searching for their first win. And three of those players _ Graham DeLaet, Robert Castro and Brendon de Jonge _ have never won on tour in their careers.
