The Barclays golf leaderboard 2010 got a lot of headlines yesterday. Now that the Barclays golf leaderboard 2010 has Tiger Woods, the Barclays golf tournament could have the biggest leaderboard of the year. This tournament is not a major, although it does begin the FedEx Cup playoffs. But if Woods prevails, it may be more remembered in the long run than any of the four majors. However, that possibility is a long way off, as the Barclays golf leaderboard 2010 has to keep Woods in front today first.
Despite Woods’ surprising 65 yesterday, pundits reminded everyone that it was just for one day. Since coming back, Woods has not shown much consistency for more than a day. If he gets another sub-70 round today, and stays among the tournament leaders, then the hype will go into overdrive.
Yesterday, the Barclays golf leaderboard 2010 had Woods jump on top early, since he started after 7 am est. Today, on the other hand, he is starting off at noon, so more fans will get to check in. As of 1:30 pm est, Woods remains on top through four holes.
Woods started on the 10’th, and has birdied the 11’th in between three early pars. This keeps him on top of the Barclays golf leaderboard 2010 by one shot, over Stewart Cink and Kevin Streelman- who has shot -7 today. Padraig Harrington, Adam Scott and Ryan Palmer are among those at -5.
It is still very early in the round, and in the tournament in general. Even the old Woods had potential to slip at this stage, as he usually wasn’t unbeatable with a lead until the weekend. Yet even if he slips down the Barclays golf leaderboard 2010 today, it may be more important for him to get two straight solid rounds.
Woods isn’t the only one off to a good start, so he could slip even if he stays mistake free. He has already made progress by leading a round again, so staying in contention the whole way through is the next baby step. Winning the tournament would be something else, although a near miss would still be pretty meaningful, especially after this month.
The current state of the Barclays golf leaderboard 2010 is a blast from the past, although it is still just a spurt, no matter what. Pundits are itching to declare the old Woods back, but are still trying to keep things in perspective. Yet if he ends today on top as well, that task will get a little harder.
