NASSAU, Bahamas – What a difference a day makes.
One day after a tumultuous effort in his return to competition at the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods appeared in control of all facets of his game while shooting a bogey-free, 7-under 65 that quickly moved him up the leaderboard.
Woods opened with an easy birdie on the first hole and rolled from there, correcting many of the tee-shot issues that plagued him during the first round and pouring in several lengthy putts. He is now 6-under through 36 holes in his first start in nearly 16 months.
“Through 15 holes I really didn’t miss a shot,” Woods said. “I really had it dialed in both ways. I was shaping it both ways, and I had nice control of my traj. That was key. I was able to keep the ball down when I needed to, and send it at times.”
