Woods 4 back with everyone around him at Honda Classic


The scene became even more boisterous as Woods played well and moved into contention Friday with a 1-over-par 71 that left him four shots back of leaders Luke List and Jamie Lovemark and in a tie for 14th place.

Little did tournament officials know what it would turn into after 12 years of hosting the Honda Classic at PGA National.

There is a Goslings Bear Trap tent just to the right of the tee.

The 14-time major champion rolled a five-footer home to avoid dropping a shot at the 14th, only to bogey the 16th after failing to get up-and-down from a greenside bunker.

The course conditions remained hard so the overall lead actually dropped one shot from Thursday when Webb Simpson and Alex Noren topped the leaderboard at four under. When he rolled in the birdie putt - one of just nine there all day - the screaming onlookers let loose.




With two more rounds of golf to go at the Honda Classic, the leaderboard is incredibly tight. He's held the 36-hole twice in the last 18 months so he should have a point of reference tomorrow. And the battle will continue as conditions will not ease on the weekend. His birdie count jumped from two to five in Round 2 and is only four shots out of the lead. "It was tough. It was tough to make putts out there but the key is to keep hitting the ball on the green and keep giving myself looks at it and I did that most of the day".

East winds around 10 miles per hour are expected today, but forecasters at the National Weather Service said higher winds are possible. "It was a tough day out there for all of us, and even par is a good score". The 33-year-old former Ringgold, Ga., resident who now lives in Seal Beach, Calif., had two birdies Thursday, when his promising round was undone by a triple-bogey 7 on the 16th hole. "Especially here with the wind blowing this hard, I felt that was very important; it was also very comforting, too, because I live here and I practise here, and it's always blowing like this".

"It's a strong test out there". But heading into the Honda Classic, Woods said he was once again getting used to the cadence of playing professional golf and acclimating to the ramped-up pressure when a scorecard is in his pocket.

"This was by far my best putting and chipping round of the season". He has opted to hit many knock-down, three-quarter shots to counter the wind. I'm hitting the ball flush and on top of that, I'm really controlling the trajectory. He dunked his tee shot at the par-3 15th, leading to a double bogey.

Fleetwood laughed when asked the last time he was at 2 under after 36 holes and only one shot out of the lead.
