Despite the disappointing second round, Woods is still in excellent shape to advance to the season-ending TOUR Championship: our model estimates his chances at 97 percent.
All it got him at the BMW Championship was a tie for the lead Thursday with Rory McIlroy. He was at 9 under when Woods finished, only to make consecutive bogeys and finish with a two-putt birdie for a 62.
Woods has shot 61 four times on the PGA Tour, most recently at the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational which he won for his 79th career victory on tour, but he is still stuck on that mark.
It wasn't easy for everyone.
Former world number one Woods, now ranked 26th, dropped his approach inches from the hole at the par-4 seventh and tapped in for birdie, but missed the green and took bogey at the par-3 eighth then answered with a seven-foot birdie putt at 18.Читайте также: Facebook, Twitter face U.S. Congress over politics and the internet
"I'm sort of in a position where I feel like a win is the only way I'd even be in consideration, " Schauffele said. The younger brother of US Open and PGA Championship victor Brooks Koepka also had a double bogey on the par-3 16th.
McIlroy had been a shot clear of Woods at nine-under par after 15 holes when Woods headed for the clubhouse.
Former BMW victor Jason Day is the leading Australian at two under and six shots back of Woods, while Cameron Smith is a further stroke behind having signed for a one-over 71.
"I made a few putts today and also from right out of the gate with birdies at 10 and 12 and 13 so that was a nice way to get things rolling", said Woods, who started on the back nine. Rose had birdies on three of his first four holes and added four more in a blemish-free round.
The BMW championship is a no cut event, meaning that everyone who is playing this weekend will need to put together a strong four rounds. "I'm not going to say it stings too bad because I'd much rather shoot 62 today and win the golf tournament Sunday than shoot 59 today and maybe not win".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
