The 463-yard par-4 5th is up next. Seventh-toughest hole this week. Last group today is 1:38 local time 20 minutes from now. Whoa! Tiger almost makes it from about 40 yards. He taps in for par. He dropped it over a ridge and it ran out just in front of the cup. A half inch short of going in.
They’re on the par-5 8th. Woods has a flip wedge to reach the green in 3. …and he spins it in there to about 5 feet. He hit a few of those in warm-ups today. Now he’ll have that for his fourth birdie of his second round.
Meanwhile Gary Woodland chunks a shot into the water on 2. That was ugly. …but he rallies to stick an approach from the drop zone and will only make a bogey. Still Brooks Koepka looks like he’s about to be tied for the lead here.
