Tiger Woods’ hopes of landing the Tour Championship in Atlanta are all but over after the world number one had a disastrous end to his second round.

The American dropped six shots in his last four holes and is now down in a share of 26th place on four-over par as his hopes of glory look over.

Henrik Stenson leads Adam Scott by four shots after the 37-year-old followed up his opening round of 64, in testing conditions on Thursday, with a 66 on Friday, which included five birdies and just one bogey at East Lake.

The Swede is now on 10-under par and four clear of Masters champion Scott, who carded a one-under par 69 for his second round with three birdies and two bogeys.

Stenson is in pole position to land the massive prize on offer for the overall FedEx Cup winner and is content to let the others try to catch him over the weekend.

“I’ve won a lot of tournaments from a good position like this, and I hope I can do it again,” he said.

“Quite a few of my wins have come from being in the front and I’ve always looked at it like, if I’m ahead, the other guy’s got to play better to catch up. So I don’t mind it at all.”

Youngster Jordan Spieth continued his excellent season with a second-round 67 to take sole possession of third place on -5 with 36 holes still to play, while Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, Keegan Bradley and Billy Horschel sit a further shot back.
