ATLANTA (AP) For thousands of fans crammed into every corner of East Lake, it looked as though Tiger Woods was closer than ever to capping off this remarkable comeback season by winning the final PGA Tour event.

Four straight one-putts on the back nine Friday in the Tour Championship - three for birdie, one for par - offset a double bogey and gave Woods a 2-under 68 and a share of the 36-hole lead for the first time in three years. Not since Doral in 2013 has he been atop the leaderboard after each of the first two rounds.

Woods sees it differently.

ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. (AP) Former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover shot his second consecutive 7-under 64 on Friday to take a one-shot lead at the Web.com Tour Championship.

The 38-year-old Glover, who won the 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black, can still regain his PGA Tour card through a medical extension if he fails to earn enough money in the four-tournament Web.com Tour Finals. But a high finish this weekend at Atlantic Beach Country Club would take care of everything. Read More...

Bjorn a good fit as Ryder Cup captain

The captaincy of Europe's Ryder Cup team has taken Thomas Bjorn to places he never could have imagined.

To the Elysee Palace for breakfast with the French president. To Val d'Isere to hit some golf balls from a mountain top. To the home of a delusional fan in southern England. Read More...

Alleged ISU killer struggled after jail

Police in an Iowa college town had repeated interactions with a troubled drifter in the weeks between his departure from prison and his alleged killing of a star golfer from Spain, records show.

Ames police reports show that 22-year-old Collin Richards struggled with drug and alcohol abuse, mental health problems and homelessness after he got out of prison in June.

US aims to end drought on European soil

Another trip across the Atlantic turned into another failure for the Americans in the Ryder Cup. At least on paper.

What emerged that Sunday night after their 16+-11+ loss to Europe four years ago in Scotland was enough frustration, mainly from Phil Mickelson, to overhaul a broken system. It brought Mickelson and Tiger Woods closer together in the search for a winning formula. It led to players having more input in picking their captain and forming their team. The hope was that it would create more continuity. Read More...
