Woods risks losing first place by skipping Barclays
You could see this coming for weeks, if not months. It was never the sure thing that Tiger Woods is with a 54-hole lead in a major championship. But the idea of the world's No. 1 golfer skipping one of the FedEx Cup playoff events was a strong possibility.Woods made it official on Friday, saying he would pass on next week's The Barclays, the first of four season-ending playoff events that make up the PGA Tour's "new era'' in golf. So the much-hyped FedEx Cup playoffs will start without the game's biggest attraction. It is disappointing, yet understandable.
