Tiger Woods is 9 shots back of lead after second round 71

Tiger started the Farmer’s Insurance Open on a bad foot, and he kept walking on that foot during the second round as well.

Woods had no birdies on any of the course’s par-5′s, and actually bogeyed the last one. His teeing partner, Jordan Spieth, obilerated the course on Friday, hitting a 8-under 63. Spieth has now moved his lead to -9 so far, and Woods is 9-under.

Woods is in danger of being unable to defend his title of this tournament from last year. Woods spoke after the round had ended, and was clearly frustrated. From ESPN,

“I was a yard off, a foot off all day,” Woods said. “It was one of those frustrating rounds where the ball is in the fairway and running into the rough. Had to be aggressive going at some of these flags and consequently my score reflected that.

“It was just a fraction off, a yard off, a foot off, and it seemed like it was like that all day. Just one of those days where it was tough to get it going.”

Keep in mind that this is Woods’ first tournament of the 2014 season, and his first one since December 8, so he’s clearly experiencing a little bit of rustiness among other things.
