Tiger Woods endures tough day on the greens at BMW Championship

Tiger Woods endures tough day on the greens at BMW Championship

This weekend at the BMW Championship at Aronimink GC in Newtown Square, Pa., Tiger Woods set the course ablaze.

Starting on the back nine, McIlroy matched Woods' hot start with three birdies in his first four holes.

Woods is also first in strokes gained putting so far for the tournament.

A day after shooting 62 and looking like the Tiger of old with his Scotty Cameron putter back in his bag, Woods's round on Friday reminded us just how hard it is to follow up a season-best round with another low one.

Tiger shot a 29 on the opening nine holes en route to an eight-under 62.

McIlroy and Woods shared the top spot on the leaderboard after the first round, both players threatening to fire scores of 59 on the Aronimink course.

There were seven birdies and no bogeys on his scorecard and more than 140 feet of holed putts on his stats sheet. He then parred his next five holes ahead of a 16th hole birdie before his only bogey at his 17th.

Khan had offered talks and had spoken of improving trade ties with India on 26 July, a day after the national polls in Pakistan . Qamar Javed Bajwa has reaffirmed Islamabad's support for "self-determination" in Jammu and Kashmir .

"I made some great putts out there today including getting off to a better start than I have most of the season", he said. "It helped a lot".

McIlroy had been a shot clear of Woods at nine-under par after 15 holes when Woods headed for the clubhouse.

"Just prove to myself that I can win again and just be clutch, " he said.

"I can accept a bogey on a hole like on the eighth (17th) hole and the bogey on seven wasn't good, but you don't get many opportunities to break 60 and today was one of them and I didn't capitalize".

Reigning PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Schauffele - trying to land the last Ryder Cup captain's pick for the United States team - followed up his opening-round 63 with a 6-under 64 to sit at 13 under in the final FedEx Cup Playoffs event before the Tour Championship.
