List, Lovemark tied at Honda Classic; Woods 4 back

Sitting four shots off the lead at the Honda Classic, Woods is confident that he is getting closer to claiming his 80th PGA Tour title. "I'm trying to make a lot of pars, maybe sprinkle in a birdie here or there".

The difficulty was the wind, which blew hard not just in the morning but also the afternoon. A terrific tee shot into the penultimate hole - like 15, a dicey par three - preceded crowd chants of "Tiger, Tiger". Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger each shot 72 and were in a large group at 139.

As for the three other Baylor School graduates on the PGA Tour, Harris English (74) will play the weekend after finishing 5 over through two rounds to make the cut on the number, but Keith Mitchell (78) and Stephan Jaeger (76) were 9 over and 15 over, respectively. After escaping the dreaded Bear Trap, Tiger drained a four-foot par putt to cap an adventurous day and get into contention heading into the weekend.

He teed off on the 10th and had two birdies and a bogey in his first nine holes.

The famous 17th Par 3 on the Champions Course at PGA National has become the talk of the tournament.

Rory Sabbatini, Luke List and Jamie Lovemark are sharing the lead at four-under, while in-form Englishman Tommy Fleetwood and former US Open victor Webb Simpson are a shot back sharing fourth. Rickie Fowler's 71 to open wasn't very bad but his 76 on Friday ensured that he wouldn't defend his title.

According to a report from People magazine, the Louisville native made the comments during a soon-to-be-aired 60 Minutes interview.

"It's unfortunate that the greens have changed this much in a year", Fowler said.

"That was kind of a fluke", List said. He's dealt with the pressure of winning in golf's minor leagues, qualifying for the PGA Tour and winning his first two tournaments. "It's going to be that type of week". The birdie in between on sixth was some consolation as he ended at one-over 71 and a total of four-over, which for long time looked the cutline. 10 and 12, sandwiched around a 12-foot par save.

Yet Woods said he was happy with his putting on bouncy greens. The 33-year-old former Ringgold, Ga., resident who now lives in Seal Beach, Calif., had two birdies Thursday, when his promising round was undone by a triple-bogey 7 on the 16th hole.

"I started that thing pretty far left and hit a pretty big cut in there because I had just too much stick", Wood said.

"The action of the event is really down here this is what everyone is talking about", says Kennerly.

Thomas made 17 pars and a double bogey when he three-putted from 6 feet on No. 16. He needed a mere 12 putts through his first nine holes, per's Bob Harig, which helped to set the tone for the round.
