Tiger Woods at Deutsche Bank Championship 2013 Tracker: Live Day 4 Highlights
Tiger Woods played an uninspired final round at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday, putting his No. 1 FedEx Cup ranking in jeopardy with two playoff tournaments left.
On a day that started late due to bad weather then featured an additional lengthy rain delay, Tiger never really got on track. He opened with a birdie but shot three bogeys during his first nine holes. For the second straight day, his putting failed to do him any favors.
Tiger finished Day 4 at two over par, leaving him four under for the Deutsche Bank weekend. His FedEx Cup standing was secure until his very last shot, but now he'll have to watch the leaders. If Henrik Stenson can hang on to win, he'll take over top spot in the playoff ranking.
The field will be cut to 70 when the FedEx Cup playoff resumes in two weeks at the BMW Championship in Lake Forest, Ill.
All told, the best part of Tiger's day was likely spending time with his Mini-Me, his daughter Sam.
With six holes to go, Henrik Stenson is four under for the day and now holds a three shot lead over Steve Stricker. That's about the most comfortable lead we've seen this weekend.
If Stenson can hold on, we'll have a new FedEx Cup leader by the close of play today.
The stats aren't pretty, but here you go.

And that's our round.
Tiger bogeys the last hole to finish two over for the day, four under for the tournament.
That also drops his FedEx Cup projection. If Henrik Stenson wins today, he'll enter the BMW Championship as the top-ranked golfer!
Tiger's ready to go home. Finds ball in left rough and hacks it out quickly. Third from fairway all over the pin.— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) September 2, 2013
As Tiger's round winds to its conclusion, it's time to start thinking about his FedEx Cup standing.
He's projected to earn just 55 points this week, bringing his overall total to 4064, while the winner will earn 2500.
If Henrik Stenson hangs on to win today, he'll jump to 4051, putting some real pressure on Tiger's lead at the BMW Championship.
Barclays winner Adam Scott is in the clubhouse at six under. He's projected to earn 78 points this week for a total of 3924, good for third place.
Today will end not with a bang, but with a duck hook. Sounded like TW might've hit behind driver on 9? Either way doesn't like it.— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) September 2, 2013
As expected, Tiger's putt on eight goes a little long and he taps it in for par.
With one hole to go, Tiger remains five under. Henrik Stenson has pushed his score to -21, so Tiger's now 16 back.
It's getting down to the wire as far as the Top 70 FedEx Cup athletes who will advance to the BMW Championship in two weeks' time.
Despite his poor showing this week, of course, Tiger will retain his No. 1 ranking.
Steele and Els are in and they are projected to take the final two spots.. have a feeling they will be keeping close eye on rest of play— Amanda Balionis (@Amanda_Balionis) September 2, 2013
The eighth hole is a par three. Tiger drops his tee shot about 10 feet from the pin.
I'm guessing we'll be seeing it BTE once again for par?
With two holes to go, Tiger Woods remains 15 back, at five under par.
Nice to have things moving along once again. Tiger seems to feel the same.
Another driver on par-5 7th, another split fairway.— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) September 2, 2013
With three holes to go, Tiger Woods is tied for 59th at five under par.
In case you forgot, "BTE" in Tiger-Tracker-speak is "burns the edge." It's a term that's been used a lot today.
Tiger's cruising nicely through the sixth hole so far. On the green in two, with a 15-foot putt for birdie.
Tiger makes par on the fifth to hold his position. Four to go, then he can put this tournament behind him.
It's my duty to remind you that Tiger Woods is one over par for the day, with five holes to go. He's -5 for the weekend, which leaves him 15 shots behind leader Henrik Stenson.
