Tiger Tracker: Updates for Tiger Woods final round at BMW Championship

Tiger Woods likely is playing his final round of golf in the 2019-20 season on Sunday in the BMW Championship. He enters the day at 10 over in a share of 55th place after rounds of 73-75-72 at Olympia Fields Country Club.

It’s the second of three tournaments that make up the FedEx Cup Playoffs, but only the top-30 finishers in the points this week advance to the Tour Championship next week at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

Woods sits at 65 in the projected standings after three rounds.

The 15-time major champion tees off on Sunday for his final round at 10:15 a.m. ET with Matt Kuchar.

Hole 4 – Par 4

There are no fans allowed again this week at Olympia Fields, but that doesn’t stop Tiger’s faithful from lining the fence along the par-4, fourth hole and giving him a hearty cheer of support. Tiger, going with less than driver at the shortish par 4, sends it 272 yards into the left side of the fairway. Where’s this version of Tiger been off the tee all week? From 141 yards, Tiger plants his approach to 11 feet.

Hole 3 – Par 4

Golf is so much easier from the fairway and when you bash it 317 off the tee. Tiger did both here at the 450-yard par-4. From 136 yards, Tiger’s short iron stops 24 feet above the hole. I’m guessing that with a front-right hole location he took a little extra into the wind. Safe shot, but had hopes for better than that. He didn’t give his right-to-left bender enough oomph and settled for par.

-1 for the day. +9 for the tournament.

Hole 2 – Par 4

Tiger pokes it 304 yards down the middle. From 154 yards into the wind, he was going flag-hunting, but came up short on the fringe, 21 feet below the hole. No problem for Tiger. He sinks it for the birdie.

-1 for the day. +9 for the tournament.

Hole 1 – Par 5

Tiger drove it down the right side, missing the fairway but stayed out of a fairway bunker. He advanced it into the fairway with an iron, leaving him 112 yards to the hole. He wedged below the hole to 19 feet. He missed it to the right and tapped in for birdie. Ho-hum par to start. Parred the easiest hole on the course all four rounds. No bueno.

Even for the day. +10 for the tournament.
