Jim Furyk was steady. Jason Day was wild. Both wound up with a share of the lead Saturday at The Barclays.
Now that the majors are over, Adam Scott is going after the only big prize left this year — a shot at the $10 million FedEx Cup title.
U.S. captain Tom Watson made it sound as if he were leaning more on Woods’ past than the current state of his game, not to mention his health.

Jason Dufner, the 36-hole leader, followed a record-tying 63 with a 71 to drop a stroke off the pace.
