1. SHE LOOKS FAMILIAR-Rory McIlroy, who is leading going into the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, is being followed on his round by his girlfriend, tennis star Caroline Woziacki, who is missing the US Open in New York Cirt
"I think everyone would still love her to be in New York, but unfortunately, that isn't the case," said McIlroy. "But it's nice. It's great to have her support out here, and obviously when she's not here, she's trying to follow as much as she can and watch as much as she can. I'm happy she's here.
"I feel like it's good to have her support, and it's good to see her out there. Hopefully, she's enjoying it a little bit, too."
Going into Sunday's third round, McIlroy is leading the tournament at 12-under.
Rory McIlroy 65-65—130 (-12)
Louis Oosthuizen 66-65—131 (-11)
Tiger Woods 64-68—132 (-10)
Ryan Moore 64-68—132 (-10)
2. TIGER IN THE HUNT-If you are planning to go to the tournament today or Monday, the best way to see Tiger Woods to camp out at hole and wait for him to play through. One suggestion is behind the second and third hole. You can see Woods putt on the second and drive on third. After that, you can hustle over to the par-3 16th, one of the nicest holes on the course, and see him putt before seeing him drive on 17.
3. MORE ON TIGER-So how does Woods size up the TPC-Boston course? "Well, I think if you look at the overall list of champions here, they're all big hitters," he said. "This golf course lends itself to that because it's the par‑5s. If you can play the par‑5s well here, you're going to do well. For all of us who hit the ball a long way, all three par‑5s are reachable. Not everyone can get to (hole) 7, and sometimes it's questionable getting to (hole) 18, but most of the guys ‑‑ I mean, hell, Bubba (Watson) and DJ (Dustin Johnson) were both hitting 9‑irons in there yesterday. That's a big advantage."
4.NOT ALL BAD FOR SECONDS-South Korea's Seung-Yui Noh, the first round leader with 9-under 62, was an even-par 71 in the second round. Now he is three shots behind McIlroy, who is ahead at 12-under pair. The good news of the day was his eagle on the 304-yard, par four fourth hole where he holed in from 66 yards out on his second shot. The 21-year-old, who is in his first year on the PGA Tour, now has made the cut in 16 straight tournament. In his first round Friday, fans mistook him for fellow golfer Kevin Na.
