NORTON, Mass., Sept. 2 (UPI) -- World No. 1 Tiger Woods shot 6-under-par 65 Friday to take the first-round lead of the Deutsche Bank Championship at the TPC of Boston.
Woods is the unofficial tournament host and his charity is the main beneficiary of the event because of his relationship with Deutsche Bank.
The event started Friday to allow it to take advantage of the Labor Day finish on Monday, which is a national holiday.
Defending champion Vijay Singh withdrew on Tuesday because of his ongoing back problems. Also, he contracted back spasms this week while playing table tennis with his son.
