PGA Championship 2018: Tiger Woods highlights from Round 2

Here’s a look at the second-round highlights from Tiger Woods at the 100th PGA Championship from Bellerive Country Club.

After opening the 100th PGA Championship with an even-par round of 70, a round that certainly had its fair share of ups and downs, Tiger Woods began his second round at Bellerive Country Club at 1:48 p.m. local time, once again playing alongside Rory McIlroy and defending champion Justin Thomas.

With many players going low in the morning rounds, including a pair of PGA Championship-record 63s from Brooks Koepka and Charl Schwartzel, it was imperative that Woods get off to a good start on Friday as the cut line began to hover around even-par, which is exactly where Tiger started the day.

Tiger got things going early with three birdies and one beautiful par save to get himself to 3-under through seven holes, seven back of leader Gary Woodland.

Unfortunately, at 3:35 p.m. local time, a big patch of bad weather made its way to Bellerive and play was suspended and won’t resume until 8 a.m. Eastern time on Saturday morning.

So until then, let’s take a look at the Tiger Woods highlights from Friday afternoon at the PGA Championship.

1st hole

Tiger Woods began his second round by hitting iron off the tee at the 425-yard, par-4 first hole and found the left side of the fairway. With just 152 yards to the hole, Woods’ approach certainly wasn’t his best as he left himself 25-30 feet for birdie.

He hit a nice lag down the ridge and tapped in for an opening par.

2nd hole

Going with iron off the tee, Tiger found the fairway once again at the 410-yard, par-4 second and hit a very smart approach into this back pin. With about 15 feet for birdie, Woods walked in the putt to get to one-under for the week.

After 2: -1

3rd hole

The par-3 third hole was playing at 132 yards on Friday, easily the shortest hole at Bellerive. Going with pitching wedge, Tiger hit a beautiful tee shot that hit just beyond the pin and spun back to about five feet below the hole. That’s back-to-back birdies to get to two-under.

After 3: -2

4th hole

Tiger pulled out the driver at the par-4 fourth, which makes sense seeing as it’s playing 520 yards, and he missed the fairway to the right. Tiger got very aggressive with his second shot from 207 yards and pulled it off, his ball resting just short of the green about 25 feet away from the hole.

Choosing to chip, Woods really thought he holed it, even getting the patented fist bump ready to roll. But it missed by about an inch and he walked away with an easy par.

After 4: -2

5th hole

Tiger went with driver again at the 471-yard, par-4 fifth hole and this one was much better, down the right side of the fairway, leaving him just under 150 yards to the pin. He hit another beautiful approach to about 10 feet and hit another perfect putt for his third birdie of the day.

After 5: -3

6th hole

The par-3 sixth hole, playing Friday at 213 yards, didn’t start out great for Woods as he yanked his tee shot left into the greenside bunker.

He left his second shot much shorter than he would have liked and had a tough putt to save par but he went ahead and made that one as well to remain at three-under for the week. Big save there.

After 6: -3

7th hole

Tiger went back to an iron off the tee at the 384-yard, par-4 seventh hole to avoid bunker trouble, but found one down the right side anyway. Left with a good lie in the sand, however, Woods went right at the pin again, but came up short of the green by about three yards.

Once again choosing to chip, the four-time PGA Championship winner was eyeing the hole the entire way and nearly dropped in his third. It flirted with the hole before settling a few feet away and he knocked that in for par.

After 7: -3 

8th hole

Going with driver at the 600-yard, par-5 eighth, Tiger went a bit left into the rough and was likely looking at a layup before the horns sounded for the weather delay. That’s where he’ll pick things up when play resumes.

This delay was very unfortunate for Tiger Woods as he had a lot of momentum going at Bellerive and looked very comfortable with his game. It will certainly be interesting to see what happens when play resumes.
