"The heat is hard for me because I lose so much weight out here", said Woods.

"It's very simple, I just didn't make any putts", said the overnight joint-leader, who is projected to need a top-37 finish to ensure being in the 30-man field for the season finale at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

The 14-time major victor Woods and McIlroy have a one-stroke lead after both shot eight-under 62 which marked the American's best PGA first round since the 1999 Byron Nelson Classic. He finished with two straight bogeys for a 70, leaving him five shots behind in a tie for 12th.

His eagle 3 at the par-5 ninth hole came after he had birdied seven and then for a third day running making a mess of the par-3 eighth hole, in taking a double-bogey after two earlier bogeys. Justin Rose leads after 54 holes at 17 under, but he has horses behind him.

Several Dead After Shooting in Downtown Cincinnati
Mayor John Cranley said the shooting could have been "much worse" had it not been for the quick response by cops in the area. Hamilton County deputies are searching the home where they believe the Fifth Third Center shooter lived, according to Lt.

"I think it was a good step in the right direction and now I'm really looking forward to the weekend". A victory at Aronimink might even be enough for Jim Furyk to take the 24-year-old from San Diego as the final captain's pick for the Ryder Cup.

"I've been monkeying around with it at home in the back yard through the summer", he said. I hit it to three feet on the fifth hole and missed it and I finally got one to go on six and felt like I at least got something going. Give these pros a course this soft and they will go to town - and so they painted it red. Furyk used three of his picks on Tuesday night on Bryson DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods - Nos.

At stake for Rose is moving to No. 1 in the world for the first time in his career.

Jason Day shot a 6-under 64 and Justin Thomas managed a 67 as both got to minus-9; Tony Finau - jockeying a Ryder Cup berth - matched Schauffele's 6-under 64 to get to 8-under. Any further delays would cut into their valuable recovery time, especially with the Tour Championship and Ryder Cup on deck.
