PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) — Tiger Woods was poised to take control at the Barclays. Instead, he went the other way.
Woods missed a 20-inch putt for one of his four bogeys over the final eight holes Friday at Ridgewood Country Club, giving him a 2-over 73. He’s still among the contenders in the first FedEx Cup playoff event, although he’ll have plenty of ground to make up.
Kevin Streelman, who narrowly missed out on a playoff at Ridgewood two years ago, shot a 63 and was the clubhouse leader at 7-under 135. John Senden of Australia was at 9 under with the back nine still to play.
Woods at least will keep his No. 1 ranking for another week. Phil Mickelson missed the cut, then left The Barclays through a side door without speaking to reporters.
