Tiger struggles to keep pace on Day 2


ATLANTA – For the first time since 2004 Tiger Woods signed for an over-par score at East Lake following an eventful day at the Tour Championship.

Woods managed just four birdies, five bogeys and a double bogey on Day 2 and trails front-runner Jim Furyk by six strokes at 1 under par.

“I figured something out on the back nine with my stroke, which was good. But I still need to hit the ball better than I did today, for sure,” said Woods, who struggled to hit greens (11 of 18) and fairways (8 of 14) and to make putts (32) on Friday.

Just one of Woods’ last 13 rounds at East Lake had been in the 70s (an even-par 70 in 2009) and his playoff chances are fading with the current projections dropping him to third in the race to the $10 million finale.
