Tiger Woods was accurate off the tee and solid with the putter in the first round, and he continued those trends on the front nine today, making the turn in 33. His fine play brought him into a tie for the lead early on the back nine.
However, some sloppy play and a terrible break at the 15th hole, where his ball hit the flagstick and careened into the water, led to a 38 on the inward nine for a second-round score of 71.
His three-under total for the first two days leaves him three strokes behind leader Jason Day heading into Saturday's third round, where he will continue the pursuit of his fifth career green jacket and his first major victory since the 2008 U.S. Open.
