Tiger Woods shot a 71 and a 73 on Thursday and Friday to post even par for the two days.  The cut should come at 1-under-par when play concludes today.

Nick Watney shot an 8-under-par 64 on Friday and is at 12-under-par to lead the tournament as the afternoon wave is set to tee off.

Tiger struggled on Thursday to control his driver but played well from fairway to green. 

On Friday, he seemed to control his drives better, but his iron shots into the greens left long, demanding putts.

He hit 14 greens in regulation but had 33 putts on Friday.

Tiger finished well down the leader board at the Masters just a month ago and now has missed the 19th cut of his career.

He is like every other golfer in world right now having trouble bringing his range game to the golf course.

After the 62 at the Honda and the win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March, Tiger seemed to be back to the old Tiger.

Obviously there is still some work to be done.

There is little time to worry about this performance this week as the Players Championship is next week.

TPC Sawgrass is not a golf course you want to play without your A-game.
