GREENSBORO, NC (AP) – It’s now or never for many players at the Wyndham Championship – the last chance to qualify for golf’s postseason. That group includes Tiger Woods. The biggest name in the sport is playing the final event of the PGA Tour’s regular season for the first time. He’s trying to get his game back on track and make a highly improbable, last-gasp push for the playoffs. Woods said Wednesday that he needs to find consistency and “start stringing together not just holes, not just rounds but tournaments.” He missed the cut at the PGA Championship last week. He beat last Friday’s deadline to enter the Wyndham but didn’t finalize his commitment until Monday. He says he had “a blast” playing a pro-am round Wednesday with NBA All-Star Chris Paul.

It’s been a wet week in Greensboro, but apparently the greens are still fast. “My biggest concern is learning these greens so fast,” Tiger Woods said on Wednesday. “I have not putted on bermuda greens that are this fast in a very long time. Probably not since my greens in the backyard right before Augusta we get em running about 15, 16, but bermuda normally doesn’t get like this.”
