Tiger Woods’ road to a record third FedEx Cup title passes through the suburbs of Chicago this week.
The 15-time major champion is back in action at Olympia Fields Country Club at the BMW Championship, the second of three events in the PGA Tour’s season-ending FedEx Cup Playoffs. A slow round went south fast down the stretch as Woods made bogey on his final three holes to card a 3-over 73 in Thursday’s opening round.
Woods tees off at 2:09 p.m. ET Friday once again alongside Carlos Ortiz and Bubba Watson off the 1st tee. Follow his second round with shot-by-shot updates below.
Hole 3 – Par 4
Less than driver here for the Big Cat and this is pure down the fairway.
Hole 2 – Par 4
Hit this one real straight but with the way the hole is set up, this one runs through the fairway and into the left rough. Actually had a pretty decent lie and does well to keep this one on the green, coming to rest about 20 feet beyond the hole. Good shot, lets up a birdie chance. Low and left here with the putt, no harm, par.
TIGER ON THE DAY: Even thru 2 (3 over overall)
Hole 1 – Par 5
Driver here off the first and he points right as this one flies into the rough. Nope, finds the bunker actually, and its right up against the edge. All he could do from there is chip sideways back into the fairway. Tugs this one left and goes in a bunker guarding the green. Does well to splash this one out to five feet, pretty standard bunker shot there. Converts the par putt and we’re scrambling again early.
