No one can accuse Tiger Woods of looking ahead to next week's Ryder Cup. Woods birdied the last two holes yesterday for a 7-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead in the American Express Championship in Thomastown, Ireland. Woods said the tournament means more to him than winning that little exhibition next week at The Belfry. Asked which was more important, Woods chose an individual title and the $1 million check over a team victory and a 14-inch gold chalice. "Why? I can think of a million reasons," Woods said.

Tiger Woods made another eagle on the 18th hole in the American Express Championship, only this one didn't finish off a great round. It pumped life into what had been a dull one. Woods, who started his round yesterday on the back nine, went on to birdie four of his next six holes on his way to a 7-under-par 64 that gave him his best 36-hole start in 6 years and a five-shot lead going into the weekend at the World Golf Championship event in...

AKRON, Ohio - Jim Furyk made a detour to Florida to sit on his back porch and hang out with his kids as he tried to figure out why decent golf was producing ordinary scores. The short break appeared to do him a world of good Thursday in the Bridgestone Invitational. With seven birdies and a 30-foot eagle putt, Furyk had a 7-under 63 for his best score ever at Firestone and a 2-shot lead over Lee Slattery of England. The conditions could not have been more ideal with sunshine, heat, and very little wind, along with carpet for fairways and smooth greens.

DORAL, Fla. - Tiger Woods hit a tee shot that got stuck in a palm tree. That's about the only thing that didn't fall his way Saturday in the Cadillac Championship. Woods made seven more birdies on the Blue Monster at Doral, the last one from 15 feet on the 18th hole that gave him a 5-under 67 and a 4-shot lead over Graeme McDowell heading into the final round. Woods has made 24 birdies and taken only 74 putts through three rounds, both personal bests in his PGA Tour career. It put him in great position to win his 17th career World Golf Championship, and his first since 2009.

AKRON, Ohio - Tiger Woods appeared to face a big test Thursday in his return to golf. It was a 3-wood around the trees on the 658-yard 16th hole at Firestone that required him to go at it hard, cut short his backswing to produce the sharp fade, then let the momentum of his motion carry his body forward with an awkward step. Only it didn't feel like that big of a deal to Woods. "I was just trying to hit a cut," he said. "I didn't feel any problem with that. " His only concern in the Bridgestone Invitational was that he hit the ball too flush and too far. He still managed three birdies, including a 30-foot putt on the 16th hole, that carried him to a 2-under 68 and sent a statement that his leg was as healthy as he thought.

Tiger Woods has entered the CA Championship at Doral next week, resuming his return from knee surgery on a Blue Monster course where he won three times. Woods played his first tournament in 8 months last week at the Accenture Match Play Championship, where he was eliminated in the second round by Tim Clark, of South Africa. This will be Woods' first stroke-play event since winning the U.S. Open in a playoff last June. For the second straight World Golf Championship, every eligible player has entered the tournament.

AKRON, Ohio - The chants and cheers began as Adam Scott walked toward the 18th green to complete a command performance Sunday in the Bridgestone Invitational and finish his first World Golf Championship. But in a surreal scene at Firestone, they weren't for him. They were for his caddie. "Stev-ie Will-iams," they shouted as the guy carrying the bag for Scott broke into a big smile. The celebration made it clear that Steve Williams felt vindicated after being fired last month by Tiger Woods.

DORAL, Fla. - Tiger Woods struggled on the practice range, and he didn't feel much better two holes into his second round Friday at the Cadillac Championship. He would not have guessed this would be the day to set a personal record for birdies, much less wind up with a 2-shot lead. "All I need is one shot," he said. "And as soon as I feel it on one, I can pretty much carry through. And I did that today. " It was a 4-iron on the par-3 fourth hole, the toughest on the Blue Monster.

Henrik Stenson walked off the 17th tee and into a 20-mph wind, strong enough that it nearly flipped up the bill of his cap and made him look like another Swede from days gone by, Jesper Parnevik. He was among the few players who appeared to enjoy himself yesterday, maybe because he had never been to Doral, in Miami. The Blue Monster lived up to its reputation at the CA Championship, and, this being a World Golf Championship, so did Stenson. One month after the big-hitting Swede captured the Accenture Match Play Championship, he took a step toward another world title by making seven birdies in severe wind and some rain for a 5-under-par 67, giving him a share of the lead with Robert Allenby.

Darren Clarke heard the cheers ahead of him and figured they were for Tiger Woods, making an early charge at the NEC Invitational in Akron, Ohio, on a Firestone course where he has won three times. Clarke was playing well enough to ignore them. Besides, beating Woods in a World Golf Championship is nothing new. Clarke whipped the world's No. 1 player in the 36-hole final of the Match Play Championship 3 years ago. He beat back another challenge by Woods yesterday to join him as the only multiple winners of the WGC events.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - At least Tiger Woods finished ahead of Phil Mickelson. Of course, so did almost everyone else who made the cut at the season's final major. And at least Phil got a major out of the season, which got him to within nine of Tiger's 14. Yet for the fifth year in a row, Woods failed to gain on Jack Nicklaus' record 18. So what more do you have to know, as far as the state of the sport goes? For the 16th consecutive weekend round in a major, Tiger did not shoot in the 60s. A closing 70 gave him a 284, which was eight better than he did at Oak Hill a decade ago, the last time the PGA Championship was held here.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Haven't we been here before? Way too many times, actually, in the recent past? So why can't Tiger Woods just win his 15th major title and get on with the rest of his immortal career already? The 95th PGA Championship begins tomorrow at Oak Hill County Club, where Woods is once again your favorite. And why not? He's won five times this season. Only two other guys have even won twice. Last week Tiger won by seven at one of his favorite courses, Firestone, his second World Golf Championship of the year.

MATT KUCHAR has heard it all. That nice guys finish last. That you can't win a major after winning your last start, as Kuchar did 2 weeks ago at the Memorial. That he's the best player to never win a major. Mostly, though, Kuchar is able to drown it all out - except for the gallery's familiar cry for "Kuuuuuuuuuuch" on nearly every hole. And other niceties on the Main Line. "I don't know that I'm quite in that [best to never win] talk yet," Kuchar said. "But I know that a lot of people have been yelling out that they've got me in their pools and they're picking me this week.

Matt Kuchar may not quite be in Sergio Garcia territory when it comes to the Best Players Not to Win a Major, but the hottest golfer on the PGA Tour knows that he is entering the conversation. It's a double-edged sword. Kuchar has been playing well enough over the last three years to now rank in the world's top 10. But he's 34 years old, and the best-player title can weigh like an anvil the longer one fails to claim a major. "There's a lot of us in the boat - best player to not win [a major]

The question lingers in the air like an odd smell for Tiger Woods, even though he has won six times in his last 20 golf tournaments and has completed a 21/2-year run to again rise to No. 1 in the world. Does he need to win a major before he is declared all the way back? Woods' 14th major championship victory came in the 2008 U.S. Open when he hobbled around Torrey Pines for much of the championship, including a 19-hole Monday playoff, on one leg. He hasn't won a major since, a run of 18 straight, while enduring assorted injuries and a scandal that ended his marriage.

EVEN IN THE most stressful form of golf, Matt Kuchar and his easy smile made the Match Play Championship in Marana, Ariz., look like a weekend game with his buddies. It was fun when he built a 4-up lead at the turn. And when Hunter Mahan threw his best golf at him during a wild back nine Sunday at Dove Mountain, Kuchar never looked rattled, never felt as if the match belonged to anyone but him, and never lost the lead. Kuchar kept momentum on his side with four birdies on the back nine, the last conceded on the 17th hole for a 2-and-1 victory.

ATLANTA - Tiger Woods sure didn't look intimidated Thursday in the Tour Championship. Woods kept the ball in play at East Lake and chipped in for one of his six birdies on his way to a 4-under 66 that gave him a share of the lead with Justin Rose. It was the first step toward what Woods hopes is another FedEx Cup title, and another $10 million bonus. Rory McIlroy, playing with Woods for the fifth time in these playoffs, saved par on the last hole for a 69. The week began with Greg Norman saying that Woods was intimidated by McIlroy, a suggestion that both players found amusing.
