After withdrawing from the Northern Trust last week, Tiger Woods has suddenly rediscovered his stroke this weekend at the BMW Championship. His first two rounds of the tournament weren't great, but he made a strong push on Saturday.
Woods entered the day 10 shots behind Hideki Matsuyama for first place on the leaderboard. Even though he'll need to make a charge in the final round, he's cracked the door open for a potential run tomorrow.
On Saturday, Woods shot five-under-par for the day to bring his total score to seven-under for the BMW Championship. As of right now, he's tied for 26th and sits five shots behind the leader Matsuyama.
The scorecard for Woods was pretty clean, as the iconic golfer avoided any bogeys on the afternoon.
In order for Woods to clinch a spot at the Tour Championship, he needs to finish in 11th place or better at the BMW Championship.
Perhaps, Woods can replicate his performance from today in the final round. However, that might not even be enough to advance to the Tour Championship.
Since Matsuyama, Tony Finau and Patrick Cantlay just teed off for the third round, it's possible that Woods will an even better score than the one he put up today in order to advance.
Woods is going to need a bunch of birdies tomorrow if he wants to defend his championship at the Tour.
