Title: Tiger Woods takes FedEx Cup lead

Description: LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Tiger Woods took the lead in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings, but that was a small consolation after he failed to make a charge during the final round of the BMW Championship. Woods began the weather-delayed fourth round four strokes back of 54-hole leader Jim Furyk, but two bogeys in his first five holes effectively doomed his chances.

A round of par 71 left him seven strokes behind winner Zach Johnson, whose 6-under 65 was good for a two-stroke victory over Nick Watney. Furyk, who on Friday became the sixth player in PGA Tour history to shoot a 59, shot 71 and finished alone in third place, three strokes back. Woods ended up in a tie for 11th but earned enough points to pass Henrik Stenson for the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings. The four-tournament playoff series concludes this weekend in Atlanta at the Tour Championship. "I thought I needed to shoot at least 3-, 4-under par on the front nine and at least give myself a chance going into the back nine, where if I put a good back nine together I might be in there, but I wasn't anywhere near it," said Woods, who made three birdies and three bogeys. As for the FedEx, Woods began the week in second place behind Stenson, who finished tied for 33rd and dropped to second in the standings. Adam Scott, Johnson and Matt Kuchar round out the top five, meaning if any of the five wins at East Lake, he will capture the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus. "Top five, you control your own destiny," Woods said. "You win the tournament, you win it outright." Woods, who has won the FedEx Cup twice since its inception in 2007, has positioned himself to capture the title again should the others in the top five falter.
