Tiger Woods Has a Real Shot Heading Into Weekend

Tiger Woods Has a Real Shot Heading Into Weekend

What once was a formality is now a pleasant surprise for Tiger Woods. The golf player goes into the weekend at the Quicken Loans National in the Washington DC without having to make up too much ground on the lead.
Woods chipped in from 80 feet for birdie after his only bad miss off the tee, made four of his six birdie putts from 18 feet or longer and matched his lowest score of the year with a 5-under 65 on a steamy Friday at the TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm.
He was tied for 11th, four shots behind Beau Hossler, Ryan Armour and Brian Gay, AP reported. “I’m not that far back,” Woods said. “The scores aren’t going to be that low and it’s going to be a tough weekend. It will be over 100 degrees and it will be a long weekend mentally and physically. I’m in a good position now,” said Woods.
Not since the Valspar Championship during the Florida swing has Woods been this close to the 36-hole leader. He was tied for second that week in March, two shots behind, and he wound up one shot behind the winner.
Woods didn’t make a putt longer than 8 feet when he opened with a 70 on Thursday. He was rolling them in from much longer range in the second round, starting with his opening hole. After scrambling for a bogey on the 11th hole when his shot went into grass so deep he could barely see the golf ball, Woods bounced back with an 18-foot birdie putt he had to play well outside the hole.
“I hit good putts, started the ball on line and with the right seed, and they just didn’t go in,” Woods said of his first round. “So what? If I just continue to do that, which I haven’t done in probably about four tournaments, they’re going to start falling.”
