Par for the Course

And the chase for the Cup begins....

As we begin the four-week run to $10 million, it is probably a little too early to say one player has put himself out in front, even though Tiger Woods does have about a 1,300 point lead over second place Steve Stricker.
But one player may have already shot himself out of the running before the second round has finished at The Barclays. Lucas Glover rolled into this week's event in fifth place, about 1,700 points behind Woods, in the standings. But a second round 81 has pretty much insured a missed cut this week for Glover who will likely take a bit of a tumble in the standings and would almost have to win two of the final three events to win the Cup. Impossible? No. Improbable? Yes.
Speaking of Tiger, at this writing, Woods is at 1-under and tied with third place Zach Johnson but trails Stricker by one shot.
