Tiger Woods on song ahead of Pavin Ryder Cup selection

Tiger Woods single-putted the last seven holes on his way to a fighting final round 68 at the Deutsche Bank Championship yesterday, to finish the tournament on 10-under and complete a likely hat-trick at TPC Boston.

For a start, Woods played impressively enough to virtually assure himself of a pick from US Ryder Cup skipper Corey Pavin today.

Meanwhile, the three birdies he landed in the final four holes assured him of a top-20 finish and stretched the odds against a faltering Phil Mickelson replacing him at the top of the world rankings.

Woods also strode comfortably through to this week's BMW Championship, the penultimate FedEx Cup play-off. However, Tiger, now just outside the top 50 in the points list, will have to find another gear this week to make it into the elite 30-man field for the climactic Tour Championship in Atlanta in a fortnight.

Rory McIlroy, the only Irish survivor in the race for the $10m FedEx jackpot after Padraig Harrington missed the cut in Boston, heads for Chicago in 30th place after a level-par 71 saw him cross the line in Boston on four-under.

Britain’s Luke Donald was last night fighting it out for victory with Australian Jason Day and American Charley Hoffman.
