The top 30 in FedExCup points are headed to East Lake for the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola. Here’s a look at Tiger Woods, one of the 30 players who will contend for the FedExCup title.
SCENARIOS TO WIN FEDEXCUP: Woods controls his own destiny for the FedExCup:
> If he wins the TOUR Championship he wins the FedExCup
> Has a reasonable chance of winning with a top-3 finish
> Can finish as low as a 2-way tie for 6th and still have a mathematical chance of winning
SEASON IN REVIEW: The two-time FedExCup champion ended his 30-month victory drought in a big way with three wins during the PGA TOUR’s Regular Season. He didn’t get the major he covets, but he did tie Jack Nicklaus in career wins when he won the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance and moved ahead with 74 at AT&T National. Interestingly, though, Woods struggled on the weekends overall ranking 53rd in third-round scoring average and 23rd in the final round after ranking second in scoring before the cut. — Helen Ross

EAST LAKE HISTORY: This is Woods’ 13th start in the TOUR Championship, but first since 2009. He’s finished first or second six times — winning in 2007 and 1999. He’s shot in the 60s in 31 of his 48 rounds at East Lake.
ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at Woods:
Playing as well as I have seen him play over the last three years. His body language has dramatically improved. I can envision him winning the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola and FedExCup, leading into a multi-major year for 2013.
