Woods' woes continue at Cog Hill

Woods' woes continue at Cog Hill

Tiger Woods' chances of reaching the Tour Championship, the finale of the U.S. PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs, dimmed further Friday with a lackluster second round at the BMW Championship.
The world number one needed to make a move up the leaderboard but instead failed to break par for the second straight day.
Woods posted a one-over 72, and for the second consecutive round had a double bogey on his card.
He was tied for 40th at three-over, nine shots behind halfway leaders Matt Kuchar and Charlie Wi of South Korea.
He must finish around fifth to be among the top 30 players in FedEx Cup standings who will advance to the Tour Championship, where they have a chance to battle for the 10 million-dollar playoff bonus.
Woods is the defending champion and a five-time winner at Cog Hill, a public course in suburban Chicago.
The last time Woods opened with consecutive over-par rounds here was in 1994, when he was an 18-year-old amateur.
Woods, in the process of changing his swing, fell prey to the inconsistency that such a process can bring.
"I'm caught right between takeaways, and I hit some bad shots around the greens because of it," Woods said. "It'll come around. I just need more time, more practice."
Woods insisted he could still gain a Tour Championship berth.
"I did it last year on the weekend," said Woods, who shot a course-record 62 on Saturday on his way to the BMW title last year. "Hopefully, I can do it again."
