All the updates all afternoon can be found here.
The word legendary is used much too often by writers and the same goes to describe Tiger Woods in general, but he had a round for the ages today after getting hurt early on.
It was a bumpy start for Woods. He started bogey-bogey and looked really close to just losing his confidence, but somewhere between the second green and third hole he tweaked his back.
For whatever reason, he seemed to focus more on controlling the pain and less on the swing and played the last 16 holes at four-under par.
He only missed a couple of fairways badly and found his spots on the green. His putting judgment was also pretty sharp and is only three shots behind going into the weekend.
His injury will be forgotten if he fails to win, but will grow in stature if he does as his round changed for the better as a result.
