Tiger Woods puts on Sunday show at Northern Trust after four-birdie start

Tiger Woods didn’t bring his A-game to TPC Boston on Friday or Saturday, but he certainly had it early on Sunday.

The 15-time major champion got off to a blistering start, making birdie on the first four holes of his final round at the Northern Trust, the first of three events in the PGA Tour’s season-ending FedEx Cup Playoffs. Woods signed his name to a 5-under 66, walking off the course 6-under for the tournament, T-58.

The 44-year-old briefly cooled off with a pair of pars before sandwiching a lone bogey on No. 8 between two more birdies on Nos. 7 and 9 to make the turn at 5-under 31 (6 under for the tournament).

The back nine at TPC Boston is considerably more difficult than the front, especially the stretch of Nos. 10-14. Woods was blemish-free on the back nine, making par on every hole.

The two-time FedEx Cup champion (2007 and 2009) will ride this momentum to Olympia Fields Country Club just outside Chicago for next week’s BMW Championship.

Tracker: Follow Tiger Woods at the Northern Trust on Sunday, shot by shot

The road to a record third FedEx Cup title has been a bumpy one for Tiger Woods this week at TPC Boston.

The 15-time major champion made the weekend cut directly on the number at the Northern Trust, the first of three events that comprise the PGA Tour’s season-ending FedEx Cup playoffs. In an All-Star pairing with world No. 3 Rory McIlroy on Saturday, both players left their A-games at home as Woods shot a 2-over 73 and McIlroy a 3-over 74.

The only two players to win multiple FedEx Cup titles, Woods and defending-champion McIlroy are paired together again on Sunday morning, teeing off at 8:55 a.m. ET. Follow Woods’ final round, shot by shot.

Hole 4 – Par 4

After a trio of birdies Tiger heads to the driveable par-4 fourth, playing 290 yards on Sunday. You’ve gotta be kidding me. He pulls driver and gets this one up on the green, just 11 feet away for eagle. What an incredible start. This is fun. Wow. Barely touches this one and leaves it short. Still a birdie but man, looked really timid with that putt.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 4 under thru 4 (5 under overall).

Hole 3 – Par 3

Another smooth strike here from the Big Cat finds the green safely, but he’s got some work to do with the trusty Scotty Cameron putter. The pin is back-left today, and Tiger’s more middle/front-right. With 45 feet to the cup, don’t be surprised with a safe two-putt par. YAHTZEE! Tiger cans the birdie putt from distance and here we go.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 under thru 3 (4 under overall).

Hole 2 – Par 5

Tiger keeps this one nice and cozy down the right side of the fairway and has a shot at the green in two. From 205 yards out he finds the green pin-high to the left, leaving 20 feet for eagle. He’s got a chance to really get something going here early on but leaves the eagle putt short. Chirp-chirp! Another tap-in birdie.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 under thru 2 (3 under overall).

Hole 1 – Par 4

Donning his Sunday red, Tiger finds the fairway on the short par-4 first and then proceeds to stick his approach just 2 feet behind the cup, spinning it back below the hole to set up what should be an easy birdie here on the first. I say “should be” because he missed two four-footers on the front nine yesterday. Rory stuffed his approach, too. Tiger was inside 3 feet, that’s a tap-in birdie to start the day!

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under thru 1 (2 under overall).
