KIsner's Travels

PGA Tour

I spoke with Kevin Kisner briefly after his third-round 64 at the Tour Championship -- briefly, because he was racing to nearby Charlie Yates golf course to catch a helicopter, where he'll take a 25-minute ride to Athens for the Georgia football game against Mississippi State. He said setting a quick pace around the course didn't necessarily help his score, but he was happy about a round that got him into serious contention for the tournament title. And he was just as happy about being on the Bulldogs' sideline for the game Saturday night.

Tiger Update

PGA Tour

In a lengthy post on his website that covered a lot of ground, Tiger Woods said Friday that he is hitting shots up to 60 yards but has not yet been cleared to hit full shots. He is six months removed from April fusion surgery, the fourth on his lower back and one that has a timetable for any return still well into the future. But Woods still sounded optimistic, citing chipping contests he's had at home with Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas along with a 6-day-a-week workout schedule.

Tour Championship Analysis

PGA Tour

It's been a trying season for Jason Day, who this week is making one last-ditch attempt to salvage a winless campaign. He posted a 3-under 67 in the second round of the Tour Championship on Friday -- which was helpful, except for the rough patch. Day bogeyed the 12th, 13th and 14th holes, keeping him from a score that could've vaulted him near the top of the leaderboard entering the weekend. "Got to stop making these silly errors," he said afterward. "It's really frustrating, because I get really good momentum through the first part of my round and the mid-to-the late part of my round, I rattle off a couple bogeys."

Hideki Matsuyama finished the PGA Tour regular season as the FedEx Cup points leader, but following results of MC-23rd-47th in the first three playoff events, he'd dropped all the way to seventh entering this week's Tour Championship. Reportedly dealing with a nagging hip injury, Matsuyama could only manage an opening-round 5-over 75 on Thursday, but showed signs of rounding into form today, posting a 68 that could at least help give him a little momentum entering this weekend -- and next week's Presidents Cup.

Yes, the 30 players at this week's Tour Championship are thinking about the $10 million first-place prize that comes with winning the FedEx Cup, but they're also thinking about the man largely credited for opening the gateway to such riches. Arnold Palmer passed away one year ago this week -- and if competitors need some tangible inspiration, they can find it here at East Lake Golf Club, where Palmer's golf bag from the 1963 Ryder Cup at this venue will be on display throughout the weekend.

OnScene @ East Lake Golf Club, Round 1

PGA Tour

The projections will undoubtedly change, but after the first round of the Tour Championship, Jordan Spieth would be the FedEx Cup champion if it ended today. His opening 67 and tie for sixth kept him atop the standings. Tournament leader Kyle Stanley vaulted into second, with Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm following. At the very least, Stanley would need to win the Tour Championship and have Spieth finish no better than tied for 18th to win the FedEx.

Kyle Stanley has endured some narrow misses in trying to qualify for the Tour Championship, including being 31st on the points list five years ago, but his maiden voyage to East Lake has been worth the wait so far. Stanley opened with a 6-under 64 to grab a two-stroke lead, though one he couldn't quite explain after the round. "It's been a goal to be here," he said. "Once we accomplished that, it's not like all the stress goes away or anything. You still want to come here and play really well. I guess it kind of frees you up a little bit, being a small field and you can come in here and play pretty aggressively."

Compared with most other PGA Tour events, the Tour Championship has the eerie quiet feel of a ghost town -- at least until the opening round begins. With only 30 players in the field and no pro-am, those competitors at East Lake have their run of the place without much traffic. "It's lonely," Jordan Spieth said. "You feel like you have one of the best courses in the world to yourself to prepare on that golf course. That doesn't happen anywhere, anywhere else."
