Perhaps finality at last has crept into Tiger Woods head, as he plays his best round of 2010 to share the lead in the Barclays with 65.

The end of all the bull-#$@% is gone, so now Tiger Woods can once again focus on what he knows best.

Not being a wonderful dad, husband, or good listener, but playing golf at the highest level.

Tied for first, and certainly overshadowed at this point would be Vaugh Taylor, who has  probably shot 65 a dozen times this season, but will have to overcome the media ignoring him as they scurry around Tiger Woods all weekend now.

I do have Tiger as my A player in fantasy this week, so hooray!

Having dropped to 84th percentile from 87th in two weeks has been horrible. This week I could finally make up some ground as my B players Overton and Mcllroy are holding up well to start at minus three each.

My C player, Ricky Fowler, was just even par so I will insert Brandt Snedeker, who shot minus four on Thursday, for Friday's round in Yahoo Fantasy Golf.

In Day One, Tiger got 20 points for first, Overton and McllRoy scored 14 each, and Fowler had eight for a total of 56 points for Day One of the Barclays.

Other notable players with decent scores on Day One of these Fed Ex Cup Play Offs are Ryan Palmer, Brian Gay, and Adam Scott, all at 66 and just one shot back.

So far it looks like Brandt Snedeker has a nice chance to get deep into the playoffs now, as well as Mr. Woods who needs to do exactly what he did on Thursday.

Davis Love III, Camilo Villegas, and Jason Day are just two back at 67, along with Heath Slocum, Chris Couch, John Senden, Jonathan Byrd, D.J.Trajan, Brandt Snedeker, Scott Verplank, Ben Crance, Stewart Cink, Pat Perez, and Scott Piercy all at minus four.

Watch out for Piercy who has been on the brink lately. This guy can put together some pretty good rounds.

Enjoy the golf on Friday.
