Breaking down Tiger's competition

JERSEY CITY, N.J. – Here’s something to dwell on as you await the final round of The Barclays.

Yes, Tiger Woods is five off the lead, but of the six players ahead of him – Paul Goydos, Steve Marino, Fredrik Jacobson, Webb Simpson, Steve Stricker and Heath Slocum – only three have ever won on tour. That would be Stricker (six times), Goydos (twice), and Slocum (twice).

More noteworthy is the fact that none of those 10 wins came with Woods in the field.
