The Tour Report

Morning observations from TPC Boston

First of all, it is a simply gorgeous day. It’s hard to believe a hurricane came barreling up the East Coast just a day earlier.  Play got under way as scheduled at 7 a.m. and while it’s definitely windier than in the first round – in the 15-25 mpg range with gusts to 35, the sun is out and temperatures are in the mid-70s.

Tiger Woods is making a move up the leaderboard, too. He shot 32 on the front nine and just holed a chip from 22 feet to move to 5 under for the day and 4 under for the tournament. He’s currently tied for 36th and projected to remain at the position he started the week – No. 65 in the FedExCup standings. That would, however, be good enough for a trip to Chicago to play in the BMW Championship.

Phil Mickelson has just made his first appearance on the leaderboard at 7 under for the tournament and 5 under for the day. Lefty, who could mathematically take over No. 1 for the first time in his career with a fourth-place finish or higher (depending on what Woods and Steve Stricker do), has just made consecutive birdies at Nos. 1 and 2 –- giving him five birdies in his last six holes.

Scott Verplank withdrew from the Deutsche Bank Championship with a wrist injury. He shot 69 in the first round and had played four holes on Saturday, making a two pars, one bogey and a double bogey. He started the week ranked 54th in the FedExCup but is now projected at No. 72.
