Tiger Woods scorched Newtown Square’s Aronimink Golf Club with his best round of the year:

He shot 29 over his first nine holes and finished with an 8-under-par 62 at the BMW Championship, the third of four FedEx Cup playoff events. His round was later matched up by Rory McIlroy

The 29 included four birdies and an eagle over Aronimink’s back nine. It was the sixth sub-30 score of his career and the first since he shot 28 in the second round at East Lake during the 2007 Tour Championship.

He tied a course record, previously set by Nick Watney in the third round of the 2011 AT&T National.
