Molinari wins, Woods ties for 4th in National

And yet, with a new putter in the bag this week, Woods felt good about the improvement he made on the greens. Molinari first put the putter in play at the Players Championship and later in May won the BMW PGA Championship with it. Molinari's putter is only 32.25 inches in length with a loft of 2.5 degrees and a like angle of 70.

After starting his round with a bogey, Woods reeled off four successive birdies to get to eight under after seven holes but eventually signed for a 68 to join Leishman and four others in a tie for 10th. His tee shot at the par-4 first sailed right and landed in the primary rough 180 yards from the flag, and his approach settled in the first cut behind the green.

A spectacular chip-in and four putts beyond 15 feet were among his seven birdies, the 14-time Major victor sharing 11th on five-under 135 after 36 holes at TPC Potomac course, only four strokes behind United States co-leaders Brian Gay, Beau Hossler and Ryan Armour. Ryu had a 73.

"I've never seen anything like it", Burgoon said. It was definitely one of the toughest days this week. Brooke Henderson (74) - second through three rounds - was 5 under. In fact, playing for Europe later this year in France nearly prompted Molinari to change his plans for this week and play the French Open.

Molinari, who birdied the final two holes for a five-under-par 65, is also going for his first official PGA Tour victory, though that comes with an asterisk. They shared second place with Russell Knox, who closed with a 65.

The 14-time major victor will not play again until the British Open, where he hopes to crack the world rankings top-50 and earn a spot in the WGC Bridgestone Invitational ahead of next month's 100th PGA Championship.
