Dustin Johnson Takes One-Shot Lead Over Jordan Spieth at Liberty National

Tiger Woods has withdrawn from the Northern Trust, he announced Friday.

If it wasn't insane enough that Merritt managed to win a big tournament with a blood clot affecting him, try this on for size: he played in the PGA Championship six days after his surgery.

After a 309 yard drive on the 563-yard par-5 13th, Merritt chipped his third shot to 3 feet, which he rolled for one-putt birdie on the hole.

Woods, 43, had acknowledged that his back was stiff on the eve of the first event of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs which had limited his ability to practice.

"Just to be back, and to feel like I've been playing some solid golf, and finally have it pay off, and to come out as a victory, it's been a while, a little too long honestly", he said in a greenside interview. "Other than that, added up to a round that broke 80". A strain to muscles of the core can occur due to repetitive rotating.

"But unfortunately I'm still unable to compete".

Political Battle Breaks Out Over Trump Tweets Following Dayton Visit
O'Rourke ripped the President's comments in a tweet Thursday afternoon. "He's done the wink and a nod", she told the Times. Melendez, an Army veteran and the son of Mexican immigrants, said he holds only the shooter responsible for the attack.

With a fresh injury scare, Tiger Woods has cast doubt on whether he will be able to play in front of Melbourne fans when the Presidents Cup heads to Melbourne in December. "To go out there with a 75 on the scorecard and play again just doesn't seem like it would be a smart move". He's had multiple surgeries all over his body. Roger Sloan of Merritt, B.C., and Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., are at 4 under, while Mackenzie Hughes of Dundas, Ont., made the cut at 1 under. "If you feel you should not go, you should not go".

But the former world number one knows there is work to be done after struggling on weekends this season, including last week when he shot a 77 on Saturday and failed to make the 54-hole cut at the Wyndham Championship.

Steinberg said he would confer with Woods on Sunday and Monday to see how he is feeling and, if necessary, on Tuesday to make a decision about the BMW Championship.

Speaking at Royal Portrush, Woods admitted he had little choice but to play a limited schedule.

But he hasn't been the same since. He also tied for 9th at The Memorial Tournament at Murifield Village. It concludes in two weeks with the Tour Championship, which Woods won past year by two shots.

Ninth-ranked Justin Thomas, the 2017 FedEx Cup champion, shot 68 and is tied for 15th, defending Northern Trust champion and ninth-ranked Bryson DeChambeau of Clovis is tied for 20th after a second 68, and 10th-ranked Patrick Cantlay of Los Alamitos and UCLA shot 67 and is tied for 27th.
