'I hit some good shots out there, really putted well,' Woods said.
'Even though I shot 3 under, I had five lip-outs. I hit more good shots today than yesterday. It's a process.'
Woods dropped a shot at the last after firing his approach shot beyond the green and then leaving his first chip shot short. In the end, he did well to salvage bogey.
With a 3-under 141 halfway total, he is 10 strokes behind clubhouse leader Rickie Fowler, whose lead should hold up for the rest of the day.
