“When you’re over that putt, all you think about is where you’re playing that ball. All the other stuff takes care of itself. It’s nothing else but starting that ball on that line with the correct speed. That’s it.”
--Tiger Woods, talking about his mindset, as the Tour Championship gets under way at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.
Woods is the odds-on favorite to win the tournament and regain the championship trophy he won by eight strokes in the inaugural tournament in 2007. A win would also give him the FedEx Cup for 2009.
