ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt said it best during the ESPN broadcast when he read the body language (face language?) of Tiger Woods during Friday’s round. “That is one unhappy dude right now,” he noted.
Woods, who shot a 77 Friday, had a very unsavory round of golf after what was such a promising Thursday. He was three-under par Thursday and very much back. His stretch of five birdies in six holes on the back nine was reminiscent of a Woods thought long gone. He defied everyone’s expectations (except, most likely, his own).
Friday’s round, on the other hand, was probably the round everybody expected from him on Thursday. The first two holes alone erased his red number from Round 1.
This is how bad it got for Woods at the end. Doug Ferguson, golf writer for The Associated Press, tweeted, “Tiger suddenly in danger of missing the cut. 3rd off the tee as far left as the other one was right."
Woods’ lone birdie on 18 bought him 36 more holes of golf.
