• • •

Ian Poulter joins Jordan Spieth at 17 under with a short birdie at No. 15 and is four off the lead held by Henrik Stenson. Barring a huge blow-up, Poulter has secured his spot in Chicago in two weeks.

• • •

Tiger Woods update: 4:49 p.m. EDT

Puts another ball within 12 feet, and misses another birdie attempt. Tiger doesn't hit this one firm enough at the par-3 8th and remains 2 over for the day and 4 under for the tournament.

Tiger Woods update: 4:40 p.m. EDT

• • •

Leaderboard update: 4:39 p.m. EDT

Henrik Stenson maintains his two-shot advantage over Steve Stricker after a straightforward par at the par-4 10th, staying at 20 under.

Players are having a bit tougher of a time making a charge with the wet conditions, getting near zero roll off the tee. There are some scoring holes late on the back nine that could provide some excitement.

• • •

Tiger Woods update: 4:21 p.m. EDT

Another good look at birdie for Tiger, but burns the edge on a 15-footer at the par-4 6th and he remains 1 over on the round, 5 under for the tournament. One positive takeaway on Monday for Tiger is that he has put his approaches much closer to the hole, but hasn't been able to convert with the putter.

• • •

Leaderboard update: 4:19 p.m. EDT

Sergio Garcia is going to need some back-nine magic after a three-putt bogey at No. 9 dropped him back to 16 under, 3 over on the round. He's now four back of Stenson.

Garcia also folded late at the Players Championship, sending two balls into the water at the 17th at TPC Sawgrass to allow Tiger Woods to win the title.

Play has resumed -- at 4 p.m. EDT -- and Henrik Stenson has 10 holes to maintain his two-shot advantage over Steve Stricker to secure his third career PGA Tour title.

The horn sounds and play is suspended with bad weather in the area.

• • •

Leaderboard update: 2:06 p.m. EDT

• • •

Tiger Woods update: 2:04 p.m. EDT

After hooking his drive well left and under a van on the course, Tiger plays a big flop that runs off the green, he chips to 3 feet and settles for a par at the drivable par-4 4th hole. He's 5 under overall, 1 over on the day.

• • •

Leaderboard update: 1:57 p.m. EDT

Jason Dufner drains a birdie putt at the par-3 8th to move to 17 under and is 2 under on his round. He is two back of leader Henrik Stenson.

Meanwhile, Sergio Garcia bogeys the par-5 7th and falls back to 17 under -- leaving Stenson with a two-shot lead over the field.

• • •

Leaderboard update: 1:35 p.m. EDT

Ian Poulter birdies the par-5 7th to move to 15 under, four off the lead. Poulter needed a big week to get inside the top 70 and advance to the BMW, and is now looking more than secure in that quest.

Meanwhile, Henrik Stenson picks up a second consecutive birdie, the latest on the par-4 6th hole to move to 19 under and is one ahead of Sergio Garcia.

Stenson has three birdies after a tough bogey at the par-5 2nd.

• • •

Tiger Woods update: 1:27 p.m. EDT

Tiger finds the sand at the par-3 third, but blasts out to 3 feet and saves par to stay at 5 under for the tournament. The rain is coming down harder at TPC Boston again and some holes are getting backed up, especially the par-4 4th ahead of Tiger.

• • •

Leaderboard update: 1:24 p.m. EDT

Roberto Castro stumbles for the first time today, picking up bogey on the par-4 6th to move back to T-3, one shot back of Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson.

There are 14 players within four shots of the lead with plenty of golf left to be played.

• • •

Leaderboard update: 1:21 p.m. EDT

And we're back to a three-way tie atop the leaderboard, as both Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson birdie the par-4 5th to move to 18 under, tied with Roberto Castro.

• • •

Tiger Woods update: 1:15 p.m. EDT

• • •

Leaderboard update: 12:55 p.m. EDT

Roberto Castro picks up his third birdie of his opening four holes to jump into a tie for the lead with Sergio Garcia at 18 under.

Castro has only one top-10 finish this season (2nd at AT&T National) and three top-10s for his young career. The Georgia Tech product was 41st in the FedEx Cup standings heading into the week, making 17 of 27 cuts this season.

Playing competitor Steve Stricker gives one back with a bogey and is now two shots off the pace.

• • •

Tiger Woods update: 12:48 p.m. EDT

After knocking his second shot to about 10 feet, Tiger still can't get a putt to drop -- he had 16 through his first nine holes -- and he settles for a par to stay at 4 under overall, 2 over for the day.

• • •

Leaderboard update: 12:46 p.m. EDT

A week after a heartbreaking finish at the Barclays, U.S. Open champ Justin Rose is hot on Sunday, going 3 under through his first eight holes and has moved to 14 under overall, four off the lead.

• • •

Leaderboard update: 12:35 p.m. EDT

With Tiger well out of contention, we'll keep you up-to-date with the latest from him in hole wrap-ups, but will now focus on the top of the leaderboard, which is getting more crowded by the moment.

Sergio Garcia rebounds from a poor bogey at No. 2 with a par at No. 3 and remains one shot clear of the field at 18 under.

Meanwhile, Graham DeLaet bogeys the third hole and is now three back at 15 under.

• • •

No. 18: Par 5, 530 yards

Tiger could use a jolt right now, and the 18th can provide a great scoring opportunity if he can find the fairway. Today, that's been a big "if."

Off the tee: Tiger does find the short stuff here and should have a good look at the green in two.

Second shot: After nice tee ball, Tiger comes way short of the green and is in the hazard.

Fourth shot: After a drop, Tiger hits his fourth shot to about 4 feet.

On the green: He makes the putt to save par, although that is more like a bogey on a par 5 for Tiger.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over (4 under for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Steve Stricker picks up a birdie on the par-5 second to move into a tie for second at 17 under. He's only one back of Sergio Garcia after the Spaniard three-putts the par-5 2nd for a bogey to fall back to 18 under. Meanwhile, Henrik Stenson finds water on his approach on No. 2 and also bogeys to fall back to 16 under.

• • •

No. 17: Par 4, 421 yards

Sergio Garcia and the leaders are off and running, while Tiger Woods is now 15 shots behind as he continues to struggle on the greens.

Off the tee: Hey, a fairway hit! Fairway metal was all that was needed here. Couple of birdie opportunities here before the turn.

Approach shot: Finds the green, but is on the wrong side of it and has a tough birdie putt upcoming.

On the green: From nearly 50 feet, Tiger does well to just two-putt for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over (4 under for tournament)

• • •

No. 16: Par 3, 161 yards

This is getting a bit ugly for Tiger again, as he has three bogeys and a birdie through six holes today.

Off the tee: Good news? Doesn't have to find a fairway here. But he does find a green, leaving himself a mid-range birdie chance.

On the green: Can't get this 20-footer to drop and he picks up a two-putt par. Good news? The bogey streak ends.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over (4 under for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Sergio Garcia opens with a solid par at No. 1 and maintains his two-shot advantage over Henrik Stenson, who also pars. Roberto Castro is the only player in the final two groups to birdie No. 1, and he moves to 16 under by doing so.

• • •

No. 15: Par 4, 421 yards

Tiger is 1 over on the round, but has hit some spectacular recovery shots. Still struggling on the greens, however. Really might need a session with best pal Steve Stricker.

Off the tee: Another miss to the right and he's in the rough. He has hit only one fairway today, at his opening hole, the 10th.

Approach shot: Tiger can't get to the green from a tough lie and it settles short of the green.

Around the green: Tiger's chip runs about 10 feet past the hole.

On the green: This is getting to be a rinse, repeat thing for Tiger, as he burns the edge to save par and picks up a third bogey.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over (4 under for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Justin Rose has birdies on Nos. 2 and 4 and is now 13 under, while Jason Day also moves to 13 under with a birdie on the par-5 2nd.

• • •

No. 14: Par 4, 495 yards

The 14th has already tripped up Rory McIlroy to the tune of a double bogey, and it is by far the most dangerous hole on the back nine.

Off the tee: Another tee ball goes right, flirting with the cart path. The big stick hasn't been kind to Tiger thus far today.

Approach shot: Tiger is close to the 13th tee, takes a drop from the cart path and hits a shot through the trees and comes up short of the green.

Around the green: Tiger's third shot is a bit lackluster, as he leaves himself a good 12 feet to save par.

On the green: The momentum he had early seems to have disappeared, as he burns the edge of another par putt. Second bogey of the day.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over (5 under for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Phil Mickelson is back on the bogey train, picking up his fourth of the day at the par-4 6th and is 3 over on his round and 5 under for the tournament.

• • •

No. 13: Par 4, 451 yards

Ballstriking seems good today for Tiger, who has hit two incredible approaches thus far today. He couldn't convert on the last one, but he's giving himself better chances today -- at least through three holes.

Off the tee: Finds the fairway here and will likely just need wedge into the green.

Approach shot: Gives himself another good look at birdie by landing it pin-high and about 12 feet to the right.

On the green: Burns the edge again and settles for par. That's seven putts through four holes.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (6 under for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Jordan Spieth is now 3 under through five holes, moving to 11 under overall. Meanwhille, Matt Kuchar starts his round on a good note, picking up birdie on No. 1 to get to 13 under, which is six off Sergio Garcia's lead.

• • •

No. 12: Par 4, 461 yards

We might see Tiger in attack mode a bit more today, as he has very little to lose at this point considering he'll likely be No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings at the end of today.

Off the tee: Driver here for Tiger and he pushes right and into the gallery. Missing fairways cost him dearly in the middle of his round on Sunday.

Approach shot: Tiger's ball finds the forest, so he has to drop and take a penalty stroke. His third finds the green and he'll have a chance to save par.

On the green: From 6 feet, Tiger misses the par putt, hitting the edge and picking up bogey. That shot into the green was amazing.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (6 under for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: A day after shooting a season-best 64, Rory McIlroy is chopping it up thus far today, picking up a second double-bogey, this one at the par-4 14th and he is 4 over on his round and 4 under for the tournament.

• • •

No. 11: Par 3, 231 yards

Solid start for Tiger, picking up a one-putt birdie. Putting was a problem on Sunday, taking 31 putts in a 1-over 72. He is way back in this tournament, but don't discount Tiger trying to get into the top 10.

Off the tee: Tiger barks at his ball a bit and it listens, landing on the green, but has a lengthy birdie putt upcoming.

On the green: Tiger nearly gets this one to drop, coming up a ball short and he settles for a par from 35 feet.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under (7 under for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: A rough start for Rory McIlroy, picking up a double-bogey on No. 10 to fall back to 6 under. Phil Mickelson has dropped yet another shot at the par-3 3rd, but responded with a birdie at the short par-4 4th to remain at 6 under for the tournament.

• • •

No. 10: Par 4, 425 yards

We'll start the day with our traditional Tiger Tracker, with eyes on the likes of Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy, who are already on the course. Tiger is wearing his normal red and black. No shock there.

Off the tee: He had hazard problems here on Sunday, but puts this fairway metal in the middle of the fairway.

Approach shot: Tiger takes dead aim at the flag and nearly puts it in, getting it to a foot for an easy look at birdie.

On the green: Tap-in birdie. Good start.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under (7 under for tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Jordan Spieth seems to be enjoying his final-round date with Phil Mickelson, as he is 2 under through two holes and has moved to 10 under for the tournament. Mickelson, meanwhile, opens with two consecutive bogeys and has fallen back to 6 under.
