Woods comes up short in Tour Championship bid

BMW Championship Purse

It's an important cutoff for the 26-year-old, who's in the Masters for his Wyndham victory but would have also qualified for the U.S. Open, The Open, the WGC-HSBC Champions and WGC-Mexico Championship by advancing to the Tour Championship.

It is hard to know where to start when attempting to describe the unusual scoring format being used for this week's PGA Tour finale in Georgia.

The No. 1 player in the world fell out of the No. 1 slot in the FedEx Cup standings following the BMW Championship, where he finished 24th. Woods won the 2018 Tour Championship, beating Billy Horschel by two strokes. The seven-time PGA Tour victor had a record season, registering the most wins on Tour while also earning eight top-10 finishes, which included landing in the top five in all four majors.

The world number three closed with rounds of 70 and 71 to tie for 19th on 11-under at Medinah, 14 shots behind Thomas, whose three-shot win catapulted him from 15th to first in the race for the $15 million FedEx Cup bonus.

It will not include Masters champion Tiger Woods, the defending champion.

Dustin Johnson has played well at the course in recent years - after struggling earlier in his career - while Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas have strong East Lake histories. "Last year culminated in a pretty special moment for me and it would have been nice to go back there".

"It was a little bit frustrating", Woods said. I hit the ball so bad to start the day.

North Korea fires unidentified projectile and declares talks with the South "over"
By refusing to sit down with the South, the North is signalling that it prefers to deal directly with the United States. It is the sixth time in little more than three weeks that Pyongyang has conducted a missile test.

Cantlay, who made four straight birdies around the turn, secured the No. 2 position and will start at 8 under in the Tour Championship.

The final day to earn the eight automatic spots on the Presidents Cup changed nothing for either team.

Thomas birdied the first five holes, answered a bogey at six with a birdie at the par-5 eighth, hit an awesome approach at the par-5 10th to set up a tap-in eagle and sank a 22-foot birdie chip from the rough at the par-5 14th.

"Guys giving me advice in the locker room how to finish off a tournament", Thomas said. He fell back with a bogey on No. 9 when he couldn't get up-and-down out of a greenside bunker, and a tee shot into the sand on the par-3 13th led to another bogey. "Neither of those putts dropped at a point where I needed them to".

This means that when the tournament starts next week, Justin Thomas is going to start the week at -10, with a head start on the rest of the field in the race to the FedEx Cup Championship.

After starting Sunday with a six-stroke advantage, Thomas had a four-shot lead halfway through the final round, but he bogeyed the par-five 10th hole when a wayward second shot caused him to hit his third shot left-handed. Thomas would eagle the 10th with a 3-foot putt and birdie the 14th.
