2013 TOUR Championship: Tee times and pairings for Friday's second round

Kevin C. Cox

Tiger Woods, the No. 1 played in FedExCup points, dramatically tumbled down to the bottom of the leaderboard on Thursday. As a result, he moves from the last tee time to the first tee time at East Lake.

The TOUR Championship has the smallest, most exclusive field of the PGA Tour season and that not only makes it easy to keep track of every single shot, but also leads to crisp and clean four-hour rounds. Unlike the first three FedExCup events, the 30-man field is rolled out in 15 twosomes in 10-minute intervals, as opposed to the typical morning and afternoon waves off splits tees in groups of three. The course usually does not back up, and the players move quickly through their 18 holes. The first group out on Thursday, Luke Donald and Dustin Johnson, played in under three and a half hours, while the last group, Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson, still snuck in under four hours even with the 28 players ahead of them.

It was a startling round for Woods, who goes from last man out to first man out, thanks to a second-to-last place round of 73. In a limited 30-man field, there's going to be bunching, but Woods is already nine shots back of his opening round playing partner, Henrik Stenson. Unfortunately for Tiger, Stenson is just one spot behind him in the FedExCup standings as the two seed, so a Stenson win would mean an automatic FedExCup title and $10 million check.

Playing with Stenson will be Adam Scott, who's in solo second and one shot off the pace at 5-under. Scott caught fire on the back nine, carding six birdies in a seven hole stretch to make his charge. That's the kind of late come-from-behind move he made a month ago at The Barclays. That win in the postseason's first event ensured Scott would hang around the top five in the standings, and he's currently at No. 3 so he holds the same "control your own destiny" trump card that Stenson owns. It's too bad Tiger couldn't keep up with those two, but it's a small field and there's 54 holes left for the No. 1 to make a move back towards the top of the board.

The small field also allows the PGA Tour to hold everyone until late morning, so most of the golfers play a majority of their round during the broadcast window. Golf Channel will once again have the coverage, beginning at 1 p.m. Tiger should be through about nine holes by the time the broadcast comes on the air.
