SAN DIEGO – Lots of talk about motor patterns and missed opportunities for Tiger Woods on Saturday at Torrey Pines. The world No. 3 bogeyed three of his first five holes and begins Sunday’s final turn eight strokes back.
Woods’ second-round 74 was his second-worst round at Torrey Pines as a professional in 12 events at the seaside muni (11 Buick Invitationals and a U.S. Open) and his tie for 24th is his highest placement ever through three rounds.
Woods was solid on the back nine, eight pars and a bogey, and said he was pleased with the progress of his swing change with Sean Foley. As to what timetable he has for the changes to take?
“Augusta,” he smiled. “Actually just for that one week. I need it in June, I need it in July, and I need one in August, so . . .”
No May Players Championship? Ouch.
