Next best of the Australians on the FedEx standings at 22nd is Marc Leishman, who has been paired with two-time FedEx Cup champion Tiger Woods for the first two rounds. That was only good news for one of them. He will announce the first three on September 3 after the Dell Technologies Championship, and will fill the last spot on the team on September 9 following the BMW Championship. I mean, no matter how good you hit your golf ball tee-to-green, still got to hole it.
Woods shot even-par 70 despite hitting 16 of 18 greens in regulation and generally looking in control for most of the day. That carried O'Hair to a 5-under 66, giving him a share of the lead with Kevin Tway, Jamie Lovemark and Vaughn Taylor.
"But these first three events are very important, and you just need to treat it like I do every other tournament and try to give myself a chance to win".
Two weeks ago, at a rain-softened Bellerive, Woods was laser-like with his irons on the way to 23 birdies and that second-place finish. He has missed four cuts this year, but his last one was at the Travelers Championship back in the middle of June.
Woods is attempting to make the cut after a rocky start to the tournament.
"Just didn't have the situations where I had the full club and I could go ahead and take a rip at it and start being aggressive and going after these flags", Woods said.
"I just haven't shown up", he said.
Sunday's final round is one of the most stressful days of his life, but he admits that feeling hasn't lifted yet.

Johnson fought back and nearly had a hole in one at the par-three sixth where his ball lipped out of the hole.
"This has been, like I've said before, a blessing", he said.
O'Hair isn't alone in the urgency to play well. And if Woods is still in the top 30, he will play in the Tour Championship in Atlanta two weeks after that. He won the Masters in 1985 and 1993, played in the Ryder Cup 10 times and was the winning captain in 2004. "That's when I tend to play my best golf". He's 52nd on the PGA Tour in average birdies per round.
