Justin Thomas makes birdie at 17 to join the group at -9. Tiger talks after his round: Woodland fails to reach the putting surface with his second at 16. His ball stops on the collar.
Woods pours in the par. No sweat. (Other than all the actual sweat.) He turns in 31 two back. Woods decides to putt from the collar on 9….a big right-to-left bender. And it dies off below the hole. Inside 3 feet though. Should be a safe par.
:On the 456-yard par 4 18th Tiger plays a cut off the tee and he carves it into the crowd right of the fairway. Rory does the same. Woods was just the 9th player in the field reach this green in two in the second round. And now the put..and it cozies up to a less than a foot. That’ll be a safe birdie to get to four under. One hole to go in this rain-delayed second round.
Rickie Fowler misses another birdie try at 14. He’s also stuck at -8 with Tiger. Oh no! Tiger MISSES his three-footer for birdie at 17! A devastating three-putt for Tiger who stays stuck at -8. Tiger powers his eagle putt past the hole at 17. Koepka saves par again at 13 to remain at -13.
Rory’s birdie putt burns the edge. JT and Tiger birdie. Woods is six off the lead. On to the 12th. Tiger with a little 60-degree wedge..and he spins it back to kick-in range! That’ll be a bounce-back birdie to get back to four under.
