Following an opening-round 69 at Muirfield, expectations were high for Tiger Woods on Friday.
The world's top-ranked golfer responded with a solid and gritty even-par effort in the second round of the 2013 British Open.
As a result, Woods is two under par at the midway point and right in the thick of things as he attempts to win a fourth Claret Jug.
By no means was the outing perfect, and there are certainly aspects of his game—namely his putting and iron play—that can improve, but Woods was rightfully satisfied with his effort on Friday.
If he can stick to his game plan, remain patient and sink a few more putts, he will remain that way well into the weekend.
