Tiger Woods takes part in The Masters Conversation and this is what happens

Augusta, Georgia – Nothing was easy for anyone on Friday at the Masters. Not with the wind shifting between whirling and howling. For Tiger Woods, who hasn’t played competitive golf since the Masters in November 2020, this was a tough one.

It started bad. He found his game. stumble again. Install itself again.

Here’s how Woods’ wild ride around Augusta National went down.

Setup on the second day

The sun was setting. The wind flew. Conditions were perfect at Augusta National. When Woods arrived for the tee time at 1:41 PM EST, these were the spots he had to cycle through.

No. 1: Par 4, 445 yards

The first problem remained a problem for Woods. Just like in the first round, Woods was off the tee. The day before, he was short of a dugout. This time, the ball got there. His approach to the field erred, forcing him to an early test for the short match he struggled with on Thursday. He failed to convert and opened his round with a bogey for the 23rd time. He is now a 17-year-old during his first hole run at Augusta National.

No. 2: Par 5, 575 yards

Woods decided to take a different approach in the second, but got the same result. Instead of going with the 3-wood, as he did on Thursday, he picked up the driver and found his second straight bunker in the fairway in the second round. Have not benefited from the 5s equivalent yet in this master’s programme.

No. 3: Par 4, 350 yards

Woods went conservatively off the tee, opting for the iron. In a perfect position, the wind caught his approach and pushed him right off the green. Just like in the beginning, he couldn’t get up and down. This time the 7-footer for par slid on the low side. A rough start, especially with the four-hole stretch coming into the third quarter.

No. 4: Par 3: 240 yards

Another incorrect iron from Woods asks him to come up with some magic in a short game. And he didn’t have it – again. His 30-foot save came in par with two shortstops. Woods was hoping to take a lead on the leaderboard on Friday. Instead, with three bogeys in four holes, he has to get things right or the conversation will turn to whether he can make the cut.

The result: Boogie

No. 5: Par 4, 495 yards

Things didn’t get better for Woods. He made a havoc from the fifth hole for a third consecutive bogey and fourth in five holes to start the round. Another missed drive—that’s one way, the right way—forced the pitch out and ended up losing 10 feet. The cutting hour has officially begun.

No. 6: 3 bar, 180 yards

Finally, Woods played hole with a bit of drama. In the par-3 sixth, which started its run on Thursday thanks to a near ace, Woods found the bottom shelf of the green. He made a drama-free movie to get off the ghost train for now.

No. 7: Par 4, 450 yards

The two well-hit shots gave Woods a look at his first tuneable birdie putt of the day. He shot 14 feet through the break, leaving Test’s 5-foot return. He jammed it in the middle of the hole to save par. If he had missed, going from a good look for a birdie to a three-hit bogey, it would have been disastrous. Instead, he didn’t lose any ground as he continued to look up his game on Friday.

No. 8: Par 5, 570 yards

Sometimes, it takes one swing from Woods to find out. Perhaps the iron was in the sixth part or the flush wedge in the seventh. Neither led to birds, but they clearly discouraged Woods. On the eighth, finally, I got together. A solid tee shot, well-placed putt and textbook up-and-down putt led to his first birdie of the day.

The result: Birdie

No. 9: Par 4. 460 yards

Woods bombed his biggest drive of the day, rocketing 339 yards down the mound in the ninth. From there, things got trickier. He hated his second shot, allowing the club to slip out of his hands on the follow-up. However, he found a way to equalize and save the front nine that could have been worse. As he raced towards the 10th he stood 5 shots from the lead with plenty of golf remaining.

No. 10: Par 4, 495 yards

If ever there was a question about whether Woods found his swing, the answer came on track ten. With 208 yards left and the pin folded on the right side of the green, Woods elected not to play it safe. Take the dead target. The ball never left the flag and came to rest within 3 feet of the hole. He calmly took advantage of the opportunity and walked up to 11th place with a confident stride. It was the first time Woods had flown for the 10th time since 2013.

The result: Birdie

No. 11: Par 4, 520 yards

A weak tee on the whopping 11th hole halted Woods’ momentum. He had an awkward lie – ball on pine needles, feet in the second cut – and Woods tried to hit a big cut on the front of the green. The approach came up short and Woods couldn’t sneak away for par. It was his first bogey since his four-by-five hole stretch at the start of his second round.

The result: Boogie

No. 12: 3 bar, 155 yards

Woods stood on the 12th tee and had a long discussion with caddy Joe Lacava about club selection. Winds around Amen’s Corner, so the decision isn’t easy. Woods caught a 7-iron from 156 yards and airmailed the green. He got lucky and the ball rolled down the mound, away from the azaleas and into the back dugout. But a poor bunker shot resulted in a second bogey in a row as the round fell up and down again.

No. 13: Par 5, 510 yards

Sometimes even Tiger Woods, who has won the Green Jacket five times and 15 major titles overall, needs a little luck. He got some on the thirteenth. He wanted to score the tie for his second shot at the par 5 13. Instead, he fanned a 3 wood, hit so hard that it went straight off the Rye Creek tributary running in front of the green. “He throws the ball perfect,” Lacava quipped, laughing. So instead of landing a punt, he had a clear lie and a relatively easy chip. He cuddled up close for an easy birdie. So instead of walking away with a third bogey in a row, he made a birdie and picked up some momentum again.

The result: Birdie

No. 14: Par 4, 440 yards

Five holes in the back nine and Wood had no par. Bird the tenth, then the ghost eleventh and twelfth. Recovered with a lucky bird on the 13th.? So how is it going on the 14th? He achieved a perfect drive and then again demonstrated his knowledge of Augusta National. His approach landed on the edge of the green, caught up the slope and headed toward the hole. He rolled in 9 feet for his fourth birdie of the day.

The result: Birdie

No. 15: Par 5, 550 yards

LaCava cautioned Woods at the top of the hill on the 15th that wind was still a factor on his second shot at 5par-5. Woods planed a 3-wood, but carried away a bit and dripped over the trailing edge. That left a delicate little note on the fringe and down the slope. He can’t be aggressive. Caution though, the ball went 17 feet. Woods wasn’t satisfied with his birdie putter, so he walked away with his first par out of the second nine.

No. 16: 3 bar, 170 yards

Woods pulled away from the 16th green knowing he missed an opportunity. If he was telling the truth to himself, he knew he’d lost two. He didn’t make a birdie at 5 par 5, which is a missed opportunity. But he hit a star iron in the par-3 par-16, using the hills to perfection, just as he did in the last round when he won here for the fifth time in 2019. The ball stopped 11 feet from the hole, giving Woods a rally. a look. I finally ran out of momentum. he sighed. He knew this was a big miss.

About two feet separates Woods for an easy tie and a big problem. His ball stuck in the fringe alongside the 17th green instead of going down the hill. He made a routine two-putt par and walked to the final hole, safely inside the cut line.

Woods couldn’t have taken it easy in the end. That’s just not how Friday went. He had to work for it. The wind cheated him again, this time on his second-to-last shot. He slammed it over the front layer, bypassing a twist in the middle and landing on his back. The pin was on top. He had 63 feet left and was simply hoping he would finish the day with a two-hit game. he got it. He raised his hat and went up the hill. Will be around for the weekend.
