Tiger Woods’ score: Live updates, highlights from Round 2 at Players Championship | Golf

Tiger Woods is poised to make the cut at The Players Championship if he replicates his performance from Thursday. But if he wants to surge up the leaderboard, the second round will need to be better than the first.

Woods shot a 2-under 70 on Thursday and was one stroke away from shooting in the 60s in the first round of The Players for just the second time in his career. He finished Round 1 in a tie for 35th, but if he parred, rather than a bogeyed, the final hole, he’d be on the periphery of the top 10, if that’s any consolation.

The up-and-down round on Thursday was perhaps best exemplified by seven pars on the front nine followed by just one on the back. An even-par finish on TPC Sawgrass’ four par 5s didn’t do much to help Woods’ case either. 

Patrick Reed and defending Players champion Webb Simpson will make up the other two spots in Woods’ group on Friday. Reed’s 3-under first round has him in the best shape of the trio, but it’s co-leaders Tommy Fleetwood and Keegan Bradley who have the edge over the entire field at 7 under.

(All times Eastern)

Hole 3: Par 3, 174 yards

Hole 2: Par 5, 524 yards

Woods gains a stroke with a much-needed birdie on the par five. He will need a couple more to get back to where he was before the quadruple bogey.

Hole 1: Par 4, 430 yards

The 34-foot putt for birdie is short and that’s now two straight pars for Woods. He’s not making any headway up the leaderboard.

Hole 18: Par 4, 460 yards

Crucial par save for Woods, who is suddenly teetering near the cut line. He will need to turn these pars into birdies if he wants to get back to where he was.

Hole 17: Par 3, 146 yards

Absolute disaster on the island green 17th for Woods. His tee shot rolls into the water, and then he drops and pitches it again into the water.  Another pitch and a two-putt gives him a quadruple bogey and he is now 1-over par for the round. What a catastrophe. 

Hole 16: Par 5, 509 yards

For the second straight day, Woods birdies No. 16. He narrowly avoided the water hazard on his second shot, and wound up with a harmless two-putt. He is now just two strokes off the lead. 

Hole 15: Par 4, 477 yards

Another rather routine par and Woods stays the course. The mid-range putt didn’t fall for birdie, but the gimme make for par was almost as crucial. 

Hole 14: Par 4, 482 yards

Woods cards a routine par, not bad since No. 14 is historically his worst hole at TPC.

Hole 13: Par 3, 152 yards

Make it back-to-back birdies! Woods sinks the putt from the fringe to make quick work of the par three. He is moving swiftly up the leaderboard.

Hole 12: Par 4, 304 yards

Woods nearly drives the green on the short par four and an excellent pitch leads to an easy tap-in. He’s on the board with his first birdie of the round.

Hole 11: Par 5, 565 yards

Plagued by a mediocre performance on par fives yesterday, Woods two-putts again from inside 15 feet, setting for his third par out of the quintet of par fives thus far in the tournament. 

Hole 10: Par 4, 405 yards

Pretty standard par to start the round, but Woods missed a 15 foot putt for birdie.
