MAILING IT IN
The PGA TOUR's FedExCup begins with the Barclays. In fact, the Barclays began with Tiger Woods teeing off with the first group at 7:10 AM ET. Tiger has gone 11 events on the PGA TOUR without winning. Once upon a time, back from 2004-2005, he went 16 events between wins. Back then, Vijay Singh supplanted him as World No. 1. Phil Mickelson could do just that this week, if:
- he is third alone and Tiger is outside top 4.
- he is fourth alone and Tiger is outside top 8.
- he is fifth alone and Tiger is outside top 14.
- he is sixth alone and Tiger is outside top 21.
- he is seventh alone and Tiger is outside top 32.
- he is eighth alone and Tiger is outside top 52.
- he is ninth alone and Tiger is outside top 58 or misses cut.
- he is 10th alone and Tiger is outside top 58 or misses cut.
