Tiger Woods At Frys Saturday
October 8, 2011 by staff
However, when he finished his second round of the Frys.com Open on Friday, was closer to the cutting line of what was ahead.
A 3-under 68 at CordeValle Golf Club Woods, safely to the weekend after 53 players who could not complete the second round on Friday due to a 2 hour fog delay of 20 minutes ended Saturday. Woods was at 141, one under, behind leader Paul Casey by seven shots and making the cut with two free throws.
“The number was 64 today, it was kind of the goal,” said Woods. “I thought if I shot 64 that lie between the two (shots), and four back. That was my mindset going out.”
Does not work that way to Woods, but he showed flashes, sometimes directly birdieing three holes at one point during his first nine (the back nine), but is also hitting some poor drives.
Woods hit only 6 of 14 fairways, working on many units that went to the left. And yet he managed to hit 14 greens in regulation, and one that was on the fringe. Took 29 putts, two more than on Thursday, but said more putts, leading to poor one.
For the round, Woods made six birdies and three bogeys.
It was more than an ordinary round of golf – which had more birdie opportunities that could not reach the street, and vice versa.
Woods hit one of his first seven streets, but he managed to find green and September 7 at one point made three consecutive birdies.
After shooting two under par 34 on the back nine (his first nine holes), Woods hit a tee shot hung in the stifling par-4 first flew just 160 feet., Leading to a bogey . But he rebounded with a birdie on the second hole and then began to find open spaces.
It was Woods’ first score in the 60′s since his first round at the Bridgestone Invitational, an event without cuts. That makes this tournament made his first cut since the Masters in April, where he tied for fourth place.
Woods, who missed the cut at the PGA Championship, has never stopped consecutive cuts as a professional.
This is the first tournament Woods since the PGA Championship and only the tenth overall this year due to injury. He was not eligible for the FedEx Cup playoffs, but is scheduled to play Australia Open, the Presidents Cup and the Chevron World Challenge.
When the game ended Friday, Woods was tied for 40th hits, seven behind Casey. English is the most senior player in the world at number 20, but failed to qualify for the playoffs as well and have to play two more tournaments to reach the minimum 15 PGA Tour.
It is also 135th on the money list and has to be within the top 125 to be fully exempt in 2012 on the PGA Tour.
