Tiger Woods is Putting on a Clinic at the Tour Championship

(The leader entering this weekend, Bryson DeChambeau, ended Saturday on track to finish third.) Rose will slide from playing with Woods to Sunday's penultimate pairing with Kyle Stanley, as McIlroy moves to play with Woods on Sunday for the first time ever in a PGA event.

Woods was tied with Rose at the start of the third round of the Tour Championship but is now three shots clear of the Euro pair following a sublime 65.

"This is a grinder's golf course".

"There's some guys that can't say they've accomplished that, have got into the Tour Championship, but to have come back from where I've come back from and to get here has been a pretty tall order and something I'm proud of".

But he yanked his drive into punishing rough at the par-four 16th and could only advance his second shot into a bunker, where his ball plugged, forcing him to blast out sideways and leading to a double-bogey. He birdied three of his last six holes to offset a bogey for a 67.

Woods last shared the 36-hole lead at the Wyndham Championship in 2015. "You've just got to hit and hope". And look at most of the field.

Under the current design, the BFR will be 118 meters long, with a payload capacity of 1,100 cubic meters and 100 metric tonnes. To make his incredible journey, he will be aboard SpaceX's next spaceship, Big Falcon Rocket (BFX), which remains to be built.

Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler also had at least a share of the lead at some point, only to lose ground.

Woods had a much less exciting back nine, making one birdie and one bogey. Thomas only has to win to capture the $10 million prize. Both will be in the unenviable position of needing to gain three strokes on a Tiger that seems as dialed in as he has been in years.

It is entirely possible that Justin Rose could win $11million on Sunday and strengthen his position as the world No 1 - and practically no-one at East Lake will either notice or care.

"The crowds were electric because of it", Rose said of Woods' hot start. "I tend not to pay much attention to what's going on most of the time, but I'll be honest, it's been a while since we've seen that sort of display from Tiger, so it's kind of cool to pay attention to it". He is now second on the FedEx list, the leader Bryson DeChambeau has faded badly, and so he could finish fourth and still win the bonus.

"Things that didn't really feel abnormal, even though it's been years, literally years, since I've been in those spots". I think in some ways that'll help my other task of trying to win the FedEx Cup. Finau made three bogeys on the back nine for a 71, ending his streak of 16 consecutive rounds in the 60s. Johnson rallied for a 70 and was six behind. The Englishman, recently installed as the world No 1, retains a live chance of winning the FedEx Cup and associated $10m bonus even if he falls short at the Tour Championship.
