2020 Northern Trust leaderboard: Live coverage, golf scores, FedEx Cup, Tiger Woods score today in Round 1

The first event of the 2020 FedEx Cup Playoff event begins Thursday, and the groups are absolutely loaded at TPC Boston for The Northern Trust. The top three in the FedEx Cup standings headed into the event — Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa and Webb Simpson — are grouped together and will be in a featured group over the first three days as a big stretch begins for the top 125 players on the PGA Tour.

With just three playoff events, every round is incredibly important, especially for golfers outside the top 70 like Rickie Fowler, Tommy Fleetwood, Brooks Koepka, Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose. (Golfers must be inside the top 70 after The Northern Trust to advance to the BMW Championship next week.)

Oh, and former TPC Boston champion Tiger Woods will make an appearance (the first of potentially three straight) as he attempts to break the all-time PGA Tour wins record (he’s currently tied at 82). There are innumerable storylines as the PGA Tour season winds down and the playoffs sort out who will win the $60 million at stake over the next three weeks. After a three-month pause amid the coronavirus pandemic, I’m ready for the playoffs to rock a little bit and send us on to the U.S. Open in September as the golf year continues into the fall.

CBS Sports will be with you the entire way updating this story with the latest scores, updates and highlights below. Check out the live scores at the top of this story, a more detailed leaderboard and our complete viewer’s guide.

BALL – “Cristiano has a great influence on his opponents” (Portugal)

BALL - "Cristiano has a great influence on his opponents" (Portugal)

Leonel Pontes is convinced that the team led by coach Murat Yakin will bet on eleven with slight changes in relation to the teams participating in the group stage. The Portuguese coach also emphasizes the importance of Cristiano Ronaldo in the behavior of the opposing teams and recalls that the Swiss national team is based on the major European leagues.

– How will Switzerland play against Portugal?

– He will play in a 4x2x3x1 formation, where the basic eleventh is left with very little change. Defensive sector with Gregor Sobel of Borussia Dortmund in the back line and right-back Widmer of Mainz, Rodriguez of Torino as left-back and centre-back Akanji of Manchester City and Elvedi of Borussia. He usually has two defensive midfielders left: Freuler from Nothing Forest and Xhaka from Arsenal. Up front and as an attacking midfielder Eintracht Frankfurt’s Sow, Chicago Fire’s Shaqiri and Augsburg’s Vargas on the flanks and as Monaco’s Embolo’s offensive defensive midfielder.

– Eleven people, many of whom play in the best European leagues …

– Yes. Base 11 players mainly play in the two most competitive leagues in the world, English and German. In this order of ideas, this is a selection with players of high technical and tactical quality, strong physically and with a strong mentality. They have the advantage that they have already beaten us several times and believe that the games against Portugal are balanced despite the 4-0 defeat in the Nations League. He has an alternative system: 3x5x2 with 3 central defenders, 3 midfielders and 2 forwards, which can create various problems and be a surprise factor in the game.

– What is the strength of Switzerland?

– The base team has been playing together for a long time and the quality/experience of its players. The central corridor, from striker to goalkeeper, is very high quality and consistent. A very compact team in defense, mostly in the mid-low block. Very dangerous in fast attacks and counterattacks. A lot of physical strength in duels.

What about weaknesses?

– They attack with a small number of players and with an opponent behind the ball, they lack arguments to get chances. If they remain without the ball for a long time, they tend to increase the distance between the lines and allow them to play inside.

– How do you assess the Portuguese team in terms of strengths?

– A mentality in games with a higher degree of competitiveness and the elimination of the technical, tactical qualities and irreverence of its players associated with the work of Joao Felix, Bernardo and Bruno Fernandes. We have the best player in the world, Cristiano, who has a huge impact on his opponents.

What about weaknesses?

– The difficulty of creating scoring chances in teams closed in the middle block. Difficulty in attacking teams playing in defense with a line of 5 players. The lack of width in the game, taking the game too far into the center aisle. Lack of intensity and speed in the circulation of the ball, which makes the game more predictable. Lack of depth on the sides and slight imbalance in situations and 1v1. Few crosses and few chances to create a gate for the striker.

The authorities demolished the house of the family of an athlete who competed without a hijab

Elnaz Rekabi made a splash around the world when he competed at the Asian Climbing Championships in Seoul in October, climbing without a hijab (Islamic veil). The action, interpreted by many as a gesture of solidarity with the protests of women in Iran after the death of Mahsa Amini, cost the Iranian authorities to take revenge on the Elnaz family. Now it turned out that the athlete’s family home was completely destroyed.

Footage posted on social media shows Elnaz’s brother, Davud, crying in front of the rubbish pile that will become the family’s home. The video also shows the medals recovered from the rubble, which will belong to Elnaz and his brother, who is also a rock climber.

According to BBC Persia, a month ago, police ransacked the house and then demolished the house, which was supposed to belong to Dawood Rekabi, the brother of the Iranian athlete.

The Tasnim news agency, controlled by the Iranian government, reports that the house was demolished, but it was not an act of retaliation. According to Iranian authorities, Dawood did not properly obtain one of the building permits for the house, so it had to be demolished.

After the competition without an Islamic veil, Elnaz posted a video on social media in which he says that he forgot to wear a “hijab”. Again, upon her arrival in Iran, the athlete again stressed to reporters that “it was not intentional” that she did not wear a veil, saying she forgot to put it on when she got dressed.
