Tiger Woods qualifies for the weekend rounds at the PGA Championship.
After some difficulties in the second half of the course on Thursday, Tiger Woods roared on the second day of the PGA Championship.
Woods shot 69, one shot below par, to post a plus-3 score after the first two rounds, clinching his ticket to the weekend’s rounds.
Playing again alongside Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth, the 46-year-old legend managed four birdies and committed a double bogey and a bogey.
We find “The Tiger” tied in 52nd position for the moment, he who is in a second tournament – he had played the Masters Tournament in early April – since the car accident that almost cost him his life, in January 2021.
“I knew what the score required to cut,” he said in a post-round interview. I started the back nine precisely the way I wanted with a birdie.
Then there was this double bogey on the 11th hole. At that moment, I knew I had to roll up my sleeves and get back on track. That’s what I managed to do.
“At this point, all I can hope for is that my game continues to improve, even if the playing conditions will be difficult. It’s still not what I want to accomplish, but I still have two more days to get there,” he added.
The crowd favorite was also able to play in the championship rounds at Augusta National, in his first competition in 17 months.
Tiger Woods posted 15 major tournament triumphs for his illustrious career, while he missed only 11 eleven times in the weekend rounds.
At the end of the first two days, Woods’ compatriot, Will Zalatoris, sits at the top of the ranking, at minus-9.
