ATLANTA (AP) -- Henrik Stenson looked like he couldn't miss Thursday in the Tour Championship.
Tiger Woods didn't make a thing.
Stenson ran off five birdies over a six-hole stretch on the front nine at East Lake. His last birdie from 4 feet on the 18th hole gave him a 6-under 64 and a one-shot lead over Adam Scott. Stenson and Scott only have to win the Tour Championship to capture the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize.
Woods missed a short birdie putt on his opening hole that set the tone for the day. He was the only player in the 30-man field to go without a birdie. It was only the seventh time in his PGA Tour career that Woods had no birdies. He opened with a 73.
