Tiger a doubt for second FedEx Cup event

Tiger Woods is a major doubt for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship, the second FedEx Cup playoff event that begins Friday at TPC Boston.

Woods has continuing problems with a back injury that was displayed in dramatic fashion at The Barclays last week. Having already complained of stiffness due to a soft bed in his hotel, the 14-time major winner dropped to his knees in pain midway through his back nine Sunday.

Directly after the event concluded, with Woods just a shot shy of eventual winner Adam Scott, the iconic golfer told media he was unsure whether he would be able to compete.

"That's all hypothetical right now," Woods. "I just got off and I'm not feeling my best right now."

"The tee shot there [at No. 12] started it. Thirteen just accentuated it. I felt great until the tee shot at 12. I was perfectly fine."

Since then, Woods has pulled out of a charity event hosted by friend and former college teammate Notah Begay and has still not been drawn into confirming his attendance in Boston.

"While we're disappointed Tiger is unable to play in this year's event, the important thing for Tiger is to make sure he's 100 percent healthy and not risk further injuring himself," Begay said.

Should the 79-time PGA Tour winner pull through, he will tee-off and play the first two rounds with Scott and Phil Mickelson giving Bostonians a look at the Nos. 1,2 and 3 in both the world golf rankings and FedEx Cup standings.
