A woeful performance on the greens has prompted Tiger Woods to spend considerable time practising his putting after the second round at the BMW Championship in Philadelphia.

Tiger Woods plays a shot on the 18th hole during the first round of the TOUR Championship. "I hit so many quality shots all day, whether it was tee to green or it was putts".

"There's some guys that can't say they've accomplished that, have got into the Tour Championship, but to have come back from where I've come back from and to get here has been a pretty tall order and something I'm proud of".

"The only thing I struggled with today, I feel like the ball sits up so much in these fairways, and with my wedge play, the ball was going a long way out there, and that's just what I didn't quite trust with a few wedge shots today".

"The only hard part was getting my speed on the greens early. Missed a couple putts inside 6x feet, but I'm not complaining at all, it was a great round".

Tiger Woods reacts as he makes an eagle putt on the last.

Woods opened his round with a bogey but fought back with two front-nine birdies.

Woods began this season-ending event with only a small chance of claiming the $10 million bonus that goes to the overall victor of the FedEx Cup play-offs, and only a victory here would change that.

"The shots I missed were on the greens, all had attractive angles".

Fowler capped his round with back-to-back birdies at five and six and while he dropped a shot on seven.

"It was a good day".

"I said, "let's just start out at Torrey and see how it goes". Made it very stress free".

Olson not only received tickets to all four days of one of the biggest tournaments in golf, he also got an inside look at the practice facility and a chance to meet players, including Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler.

FedEx Cup leading Bryson DeChambeau had an East Lake debut he would rather forget in posting two double-bogeys over his opening nine on route to a round of 71.
