Watch Tiger Woods rescue his round with an eagle

Woods, who hit only five fairways on day one but scrambled hard to salvage a 72, put together a steady, but unspectacular second round featuring just one bogey and only two birdies as he closed right on the projected cut line.

I felt like today the way I was hitting the golf ball, especially toward the back nine, that I felt like I should have shot something in the 60s, but didn't do it, said Woods afterwards.

"The US Open is coming up next so players" schedules are not yet decided. "They were into it early", Woods said.

They were never friends as they battled for supremacy, but they have become closer in recent years through Woods' role as a vice captain in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup, and, in turn, Mickelson's support for his old foe during his many back issues. "I happened to run into Rory and it seemed like the three of them kind of struggled a little bit in the morning to get things going".

Mickelson spoke recently of his wish that he and Woods simply "bypass the ancillary stuff" at the Players in favour of a head-to-head matchup. "So it's not a new golf swing".

Kim, who previous year was the youngest victor of the Players, joined legendary Jack Nicklaus as the first player since Nicklaus in 1977 to shoot an equal defending champion low first round of 67. "I'm doing better as time has gone on".

Woods officially committed Wednesday to playing in the 2018 British Open at Carnoustie, Dan Kilbridge of Golfweek.com reports. I had a lot of fun, enjoyed being with the guys.

"I wouldn't say it's gravy, but it's unbelievable, and I'm just so thankful to be able to have this opportunity again because I didn't know if I would ever have had". His tee shot landed just right of the small pot bunker in front of the green and started spinning back. "I feel like they're tough to read but today I felt like I did a very good job reading the greens", Johnson said. "That's what Arnold (Palmer) and Jack (Nicklaus) used to do all the time". It's been either way for our entire careers.

Back in 2001, when the two played against each other at TPC Sawgrass, it was in the third round.

Maybe if Woods hadn't nearly won the Valspar Championship two months ago, the expectations for him might have been more reasonable. Instead, he became the seventh player to share the record of 9-under 63 and first since Colt Knost in the second round in 2016.

Jordan Spieth won last year's event at Royal Birkdale.

"If you win here, you can win anywhere else", he told reporters.
