Tiger put up a good fight, but it wasn't enough this time. He looked (dare I say it?) disinterested, until about half way through the tournament. Phikelson's shot into the hazard put him within reach and Tiger had multiple birdie opportunities to put the pressure on. Unfortunately, not enough of them dropped.
So Phil wins and feels really happy about it.
Phikelson reports that he may not be in Chicago for the next leg of the FedEx Cup because the commissioner has not honored requests he had (these remained unnamed) yet was expected to show up at the play-offs to support the PGA. He added, "Oh and my daughters start school on Wed. and they have soccer games etc. I'd like to go to, but we'll see."
Meanwhile, Tiger went without playing one of the tournaments and is in third place in pts.
