Tiger Woods aims to win his 3rd FedEx Cup by winning the 2012 TOUR Championship.

Tiger Woods aims to win his third FedEx Cup, and is in good position to make a bid at the championship. Situated in the second position going into the tournament, Woods trails only Rory McIlroy in the overall standings and can finish in first place with a win in the 2012 TOUR Championship.

If McIlroy wins, he's guaranteed a win -- but even if he doesn't, he's still in a good spot to win the Cup. That changes if Woods wins the TOUR Championship. Even a top-three finish gives him a reasonable shot at winning the whole thing, although he's probably going to need McIlroy to perform a lot worse in the overall standings.

The other Los Angeles golfers have a lot of catching up to do. Hunter Mahan is currently 23rd, John Huh is 26th and Rickie Fowler is 27th. All of them need to win, and get a lot of help while doing so.
