Woods still not tournament tough


DUBLIN, Ohio – Tiger Woods made a point after his round of reminding everyone that he is not presently as tournament tough as most other players this year.

'Usually, most guys are at this point in January,' he said after a respectable 69 that left him 10 strokes behind leader Rickie Fowler.

'It doesn't matter how many (practice rounds) you play, it's not going to simulate a tournament.

'Here we are in June and I'm at the point which most guys are beginning of the year, so it's just one of those things where the more good shots I hit, keep building, and it's a process.

'I hit more good shots today than yesterday and really putted well. I had five lip-outs, so it could have been a pretty good number.'

Of course, whose fault is it that Woods has played so little this year?
