Tiger Woods’ score: Live updates, highlights from Round 3 at Players Championship | Golf
Woods (3 under for the tournament) would be in a much better position heading into Saturday if it weren’t for a disastrous 17th hole — which he quadruple bogeyed after hitting it into the water hazard twice — in Round 2. Instead, Woods sits in a tie for 39th place and is nine strokes off the pace set by leaders Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood.
Ignoring the 17th hole, if Woods plays like he did Friday, it wouldn’t be all that bad. He had five birdies and didn’t have any other bogeys in the second round, so replicating that performance would serve him well.
Woods will be partnered with Kevin Na (-3) on moving day.

(All times Eastern)
Hole 5: Par 4, 371 yards
Hole 4: Par 4, 471 yards
Another missed putt from within 10 feet. Rinse and repeat. That might have been Woods’ best chance thus far for a birdie.
Hole 3: Par 3, 155 yards
Suboptimal start to the round. Woods bogeys his second consecutive hole after his tee shot goes into the fairway next to the green. The five-foot par putt is once again missed.
Hole 2: Par 5, 540 yards
Rough hole for Woods. He went into the rough off the tee, then to a fairway bunker before winding up in the fringe for a long lag putt. Five-foot putt for par is no good and he bogeys the par five.
Hole 1: Par 4, 440 yards
Par to start the round for Woods. He had a birdie putt from inside 17 feet but couldn’t get it to go.
