Tiger Woods hammered a low, drawing 3-wood, twirled his club and then gave swing guru Sean Foley a fist bump. His practice session was complete. After walking to the first tee, Woods asked an official, "What's the batting order today?" With playing partner K.J. Choi waiting in the on-deck circle, Woods put a flawed swing on that same 3-wood, and his drive settled in the right rough just 231 yards away. A so-so approach, followed by a heavy bunker shot and flubbed four-footer left Woods 2 over par before he could catch his breath at the BMW Championship.

Bloom will be on Rose Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune There are three types of players in the Masters field: The guys we know by a single name (Tiger, Rory, Phil, Sergio, Bubba), the ones whose names are somewhat difficult to spell (Graeme, Charl) and the rest of the field. My Masters pick is from the third list. Justin Rose shed his rep for blowing Sunday leads at the 2011 BMW Championship. His five-shot edge shrunk to one until he chipped in for birdie on No. 17. Last month at Doral, he rallied from three shots down to claim his fourth PGA Tour victory in less than two years.

For years, Chicago sports fans could rely on seeing three things over the Fourth of July weekend - fireworks, Cubs miscues and the Western Open. Then in 2007, the Western morphed into the BMW Championship. The FedEx Cup event brought stronger fields to Cog Hill and afforded rock-star parking to Beemer owners, but it also pushed the tournament's date to September. Or, as it's known in the City of Big Shoulders, football season. Now the Western Golf Association, which runs the BMW Championship, would like to revive the tournament.

Tiger Woods is two shots out of last place after the opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Mass., nine shots behind leaders Jason Day and Zach Johnson. Woods, who began Friday's round on the 10th hole at the TPC of Boston course, finished at 1-over-par 72. After bogeys on four of his first six holes, Woods carded consecutive birdies to finish his opening nine and added one birdie over his closing nine. Day and Johnson finished their rounds 8 under, one shot ahead of Ryan Moore, Ryan Palmer, Rory McIlroy, Hunter Mahan, Brian Davis and D.J. Trahan.

The Tour Championship When: Thursday-Sunday, East Lake Golf Club, Atlanta. Course: 7,319 yards, par 70. Format: 72 holes, stroke play. No cut. Field is limited to final 30 players in FedEx Cup points race. Purse: $8.5 million ($1.4 million to winner). 2010 champion: Jim Furyk (8-under-par 272, one shot ahead of Luke Donald). Furyk is not at East Lake, standing 36th on the points list after last week's BMW Championship. FedEx Cup: Points are reset this week to give everyone a mathematical chance of winning the FedEx Cup. A win by any of the top five — Webb Simpson, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Luke Donald or Matt Kuchar — would lock up the title without outside help.

The FedEx Cup chase isn't the only "tournament within a tournament" in play at this week's BMW Championship. It's also the last chance for players to lock up a Presidents Cup berth. The top 10 players in both the U.S. and international standings after this week book automatic passage to Australia for November's showdown at Royal Melbourne. Remember, too, that U.S. captain Fred Couples already has earmarked one of his wild-card picks for Tiger Woods . That leaves even less wiggle room for U.S. hopefuls.
