Tiger Woods Fires 2nd-Round 65

Given Tiger Woods recent history, one would have guessed that Tiger had a small chance of making it to Saturday and Sunday. After a brilliant front 9 and a mediocre back nine of the first round, the HOFer was in last place! Being in last place going into round 2 meant that you had to play alone. I bet you can count on one hand how many time Tiger Woods has played by himself during a round on one hand. But that just added to the drama!

It was said that prior to the this week’s Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods would need to remain patient with his game as he got himself back into competition mode. That was definitely not the case with his 2nd-round!

Woods put together a “Tiger-esk” round by posting a bogey-free 7-under 65 on Friday. We saw just about everything in this round. We saw the occasional frustrated Tiger and we saw the vintage highlights and amazing shots we are used to seeing Tiger hit! A great example was his brilliant play on 12.

 

“It feels good,” said Woods, whose score was eight strokes better than the previous round. “Yesterday I had it going through eight holes and lost it. Today was different.”

The last time Tiger Woods had a bogey-free round? The final round of the 2015 Greenbrier Classic, 18 months ago! The guys was clicking on all cylinders! To be honest it is quite refreshing to see a guy like Tiger get his swagger back! He hit 8 of 13 fairways and 14 of 18 greens. Do you remember yesterday when we said that his short game needed some work? Well, wedge play is a little easier when you are in the middle of fairway.

“I wanted to keep that card clean,” Woods said. “I don’t know what it is about playing and competing, but keeping cards clean, there’s something really special and it feels pretty good about doing that.”

Tiger is currently in a tie for 9th. He will play with the young phenom, Rickie Fowler, on Saturday! That is must-watch-tv!

 

When you start in last and end the round in the top 10, you played some great golf! Check out the coverage tomorrow to see if Tiger can keep the magic going! This is fun people! This is fun!
