Making his final start before the 2018 US Open at Shinnebad, Tiger Woods is back in action this week at the Memorial Tournament, organized by Jack Nicklaus.
After the first fights on Thursday, Tiger Woods found his rhythm at the end of his round and came back to par thanks to three consecutive birdies in the final straight.
Tiger has dominated this event in the past, winning five times and loading eight top 10 in 15 trips to Muirfield Village. Tiger played the event for the last time in 2015, making the cut and finishing 71st. His last event was The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrbad, where he recovered after barely making the cut to make a charge and finish 11th.
Tiger leaves at 1:16 p.m. ET with Justin Rose and Jason Dufner. Keep on here while we track your second round, shot by hit.
Hole 12 – Par 3
MARCHED. IN. Tiger's tee shot literally hits the flag (not the real one) and lands just a few feet above the cup to give another birdie look.
Oh boy. It literally rains in Tiger's parade while the horn sounds before he has a chance to putt. A weather delay is officially activated in the Memorial Tournament starting at 4:16 p.m. ET.
Hole 11 – Par 5
Tiger caught the rough right of the street at No. 11 and his second shot is back on the fairway. (Insert the Tiger's roar here) Your third shot was perfect, landing on the green and rolling into the hole for the eagle! 5-under to 11 (5 under for the tournament).
Hole 10 – Par 4
Tiger takes another tour of the street, this time 320 yards long. His approach reaches about 15 feet away, and he two putts for par. 3-under to 10 (3 under for the tournament).
Thoughts on the turn
After his round yesterday, Tiger said he felt "tight" on his back, but it was not a big deal. He showed that it was not with a triple low 33 on the first line that featured four birdies after an unusual bogey of three putts on the first hole. His iron game has been marked, especially from bunkers. He is fighting well when he needs it and making the necessary putts. A great birdie in the No. 9 could provide the momentum he needs to continue his career in the back.
Hole 9 – Par 4
Tiger rips an iron off the tee again and finds the fairway. His approach was good, not excellent, finding the green but leaving a long look at the birdie. Long look? Please, says Tiger, who drops it without a doubt. That's 3 low on the front nine (3 low for the tournament).
Hole 8 – Par 3
Tiger finds a bunker here from the tee at n. ° 8, then almost holes in his second shot. The ball rolled approximately 5 feet beyond the cup, but Tiger was able to clean it up for par. 2-under to 8 (2 under for the tournament).
Score update: Kyle Stanley is the only leader with 9 under par, followed by a five tie in second place with Wesley Bryan, Hideki Matsuyama, Jason Day, JB Holmes and Joaquin Niemann, all with 8 under par.
Hole 7 – Par 5
BOOM. Tiger bombed this one down the street. Tiger got his second hit, hitting the green and finding a bunker for the third time today. Once again, hit a large recovery shot and place this near the hole, setting another birdie. 2 low to 7 (2 low for the tournament).
Hole 6 – Par 4
Tiger went with the controller here and did not like it from the beginning. Playing from a right street bunker Tiger reached a beauty of approximately 13 feet and simply fails again for birdie. Pair. 1-under to 6 (1-under for the tournament).
Hole 5 – Par 5
Tiger's three birdie streak started here yesterday, and his 3-wood off the tee has him in the middle of the street and in a position to do it again. He went for the green in two, but it gets lost short and correct. Tiger chose to put it, and had a small roll a few feet from the hole. Drop the putt and go to 1-under to 5 (1 down for the tournament).
Hole 4 – Par 3
Tiger feels it with his irons today. He did not hit this from the tee, but he's on the green. Oh This was close. The line was an inch away, but Tiger plays the pair. Even up to 4 (Even for the tournament).
Hole 3 – Par 4
Tiger takes iron out of the bag and hits his sharp shot that finds the right side of the street. Whether he intended to do it or not, Tiger's second shot was long and hit a hill behind the green and rolled perfectly next to the hole. Woohoo! Chirp-chirp-chirp, that's a little bird. Even up to 3 (Even for the tournament).
Hole 2 – Par 4
Tiger took a good step in look this one and find the fairway from the tee at n. 2. From 134 yards, Tiger made a good guess, but he spun a little farther than he wanted. Anyway, it's another look at birdie. Another putt goes long and he left but Tiger cleans it up for par. 1-over to 2 (1-over for the tournament).
Leaderboard Update: We have a five-position tie at the top with Wesley Bryan, Hideki Matsuyama, Jason Day, JB Holmes and Abraham Ancer, all with a pair of 8 under.
Hole 1 – Par 4
Like yesterday, Tiger's first tee shot with wood 3 meets the rough. He did not have a wide angle in the hole thanks to a short-sided green protected by a bunker, so his approach lands to the left of the cup, he should be able to putt two easily. The birdie putt is lost a bit long and straight and the pair putt cuts the left edge. It's a bad bogey of three putt. 1-over thru 1 (1-over for the tournament).
