Kenny Perry shot a 6-under 64 Saturday to move past second-round leader Tiger Woods and take the third-round lead of The Tour Championship. Perry finished 54 holes at 8-under 202.

Woods leads the standings in the playoffs, and a win on Sunday would give Woods his second FedEx Cup title in three years. A victory for Perry doesn't guarantee him the crown and its $10 million prize. Perry...

O'Hair shot a 4-under 66 at the East Lake Golf Club, but found Tiger Woods, Padraig Harrington and Stewart Cink one shot back in the last of the PGA Tour's playoff events. If the final standings of this tournament were identical to the standings at the end of Thursday's action, O'Hair would win the FedEx Cup and its first prize of $10 million. He began...

Tiger Woods, having been surpassed for the top spot in the FedEx Cup race, shot a 4-under 67 Friday and moved into a tie for the lead at the BMW Championship. A victory by Steve Stricker last week at the Deutsche Bank Championship moved him in front of Woods in the PGA Tour's four-tournament playoff system, but Woods would regain the lead with a win this week. He finished 36 holes at the Cog Hill Golf & Country Club with a 7-under 135 total, tied for the top spot with Mark Wilson. They...

Steve Stricker birdied the final two holes Monday to win the PGA Deutsche Bank Championship in Massachusetts by a single stroke. Stricker closed with a 4-under 67 to finish at 17-under 267. It was tough. Even though the wind wasn't blowing (hard), there was enough of a breeze that it was swirling around a bit, and that made club selection difficult at times, and the pins were tough, said Stricker, who earned $1.35 million for the victory. Stricker also moved past Tiger Woods for the No. 1...
