Tiger Woods battles Bear Trap to stay in contention

Andres Leiva

For the most part, the victor of 79 PGA Tour titles and 14 majors is passing the test in his third start on the PGA Tour after taking a year off to recover following spinal fusion surgery. Weeks like this challenge you to the ultimate level.

"It's unfortunate that the greens have changed this much in a year", Fowler said.

LPGA - Jessica Korda shot a course-record 62 at the LPGA Thailand in Chonburi to lead by four strokes after the second round.

"I was telling you guys, I love Riviera, I just don't play well there", Woods said. A terrific tee shot into the penultimate hole - like 15, a dicey par three - preceded crowd chants of "Tiger, Tiger".

"It's kind of irrelevant because there's going to be 30 guys within a couple shots of the lead, " List said.

And there was another guy four shots behind.

At the par-4 ninth, Woods hit another fairway and hit his second shot to 15 feet, but missed the birdie putt. Everyone knew it just from listening to the roars.

Uber Express Pool is like a minibus with cheaper rides
Uber started piloting Express Pool in San Francisco in November and then quietly launched it there and in Boston in December. Depending on the route, of course, some Philly riders may find prices on par with a $2.50 SEPTA ride (or less).

Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri carded three bogeys in a span of four holes towards the end of his second round but eventually made the cut. At the 235 yard Par 3 17th he flighted a flawless long iron into the heart of the green and poured the birdie putt right in the centre for a rare two. While the Weather Channel forecasts possible morning rain showers, which could make the greens a little more receptive, sustained winds of around 14 miles per hour are still expected to increase the degree of difficulty on tee and approach shots.

At four over par and the cut expected to be around five over, McIlroy could easily have let the round slip but instead he got his head down and ground it out. He misread the speed and the line, so badly that it was similar to a auto driving from Chicago to Denver and winding up in Phoenix.

It is a sold out spot on the 17th hole that keeps its value year after year.

He was hitting fairway after fairway, green after green, along with making very few mistakes. He did so in front of the Goslings Bear Trap Party Pavilion, cutting a 5-iron to 12 feet. "So that's one of the reasons why I started that thing pretty far left and hit a pretty big cut in there, because I had just too much stick".

"It's hard to make birdies and it's hard to find some". A three-putt bogey on the par-4 16th was next, but Tiger rebounded with that birdie on 17, surrounded by water and the track's most hard hole. He felt the same way as Woods.

"I was trying to just play a little bit of a different shot with the five-iron and sort of cut it in there, and I just got way ahead of it", McIlroy said afterwards.
