Lahiri and Tiger shoot even par, lie 60th at Northern Trust

"I just didn't have the situations where I had a full club and I could go ahead and take a rip at it and start being aggressive and going after these flags", he said. He was five shots behind and in a tie for 60th. "When I hit that 3-wood, it all clicked". U.S. Open and PGA champion Brooks Koepka made birdies by smashing driver as often as he could and muscling it out of the deep rough with wedges when he missed.

"It was a good round, but the triple was just so bad", Johnson said.

Before long, a list of contenders lined up behind them in an entertaining start to the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Newly-crowned Champion Golfer of the Year Francesco Molinari, as well as runners-up Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele, will join the field in the first event of the FedExCup Playoffs.

O'Hair isn't alone in the urgency to play well.

"I just laughed. I literally just laughed at the way I hit the shot". Didn't hit a ball till Tuesday, but it was nice to be mentally fresh coming in.

President pledges 'full support' for islands as Lane nears
According to NWS, only four named storms have made landfall in Hawaii since 1959 - and only two of those storms were hurricanes. The Big Island began feeling the impact of Hurricane Lane yesterday, as the outer rain bands swept through the island.

‘Survival of the sluggish’ suggests evolution favours slackers
Molluscs that had gone the way of the dinosaurs and disappeared had higher metabolic rates than their still flourishing cousins. They looked at the metabolic rates of 299 different species.

Thomas Cook removes guests from Egyptian hotel following two deaths
Mr Cooper, 69, and Mrs Cooper, 63, from Burney in Lancashire, were on holiday with their daughter and her three children. However, hotel general manager Dieter Geiger strongly denied there was "an increased incidence of illness" at the resort.

Speaking after shooting a four-under-par 67 to be one stroke off the pace alongside Johnson at The Northern Trust on Thursday - the opening FedEx Cup play-off event - Koepka said: "I'd love to knock him off, and I'm sure he'd love to keep me where I'm at". "No matter how good your drive is, you've still got to roll them and still got to make putts and I didn't putt very well today".

Johnson's tee shot at the par-three sixth hole lipped-out and then after four inward birdies to move to five under, the current FedEx Cup points leader took three shots to get up-and-down from a bunker at 17 for a triple-bogey to finish with a four-under-par 67.

"The name of the game is you've got to make putts, and you've got to roll it, " Woods said. At the 18th, facing a 28-foot downhill putt for birdie, he came up three feet short and missed the ensuing par putt.

"I had a hard time seeing my lines, and consequently I did not make many putts", Woods told reporters after the round.

The 14-time major victor struggled with the putter throughout but carded another 71, with the cut set at +1. The third-place finish at Bellerive at least put him back in the top 50, but did a world of good between the ears. "And teeing off this week, I felt the most confident of any tournament this year. I think I've got a member-guest the following week".

Phil Mickelson shot a 3-under 68 and was only two shots off the lead despite hitting only three of 14 fairways. Scott and Thomas contended at the PGA Championship two weeks ago, and Poulter is trying to secure a spot on the 2018 European Ryder Cup team. He bellied a wedge from there some five feet past the hole and lipped out the comebacker for the day's first bogey.
