Tiger Woods hits quadruple bogey at the Players' Championship

Tiger Woods

Woods was 2-under through 10 holes in Friday's second round at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach.

Woods' tee shot landed on the back of the green and rolled over the edge into the water.

Woods, who sat out last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a neck strain, has finished in the top-20 in each of his three previous starts this season. So it's stats plus actually watching what happened in nearly every case, and Woods was lights out from tee to green other than that one hole. "I think we all have to accept that you're going to hit good shots, and going to get some weird hopes, and get some really, really funky lies whether it's off the fairway or around the greens".

"I still don't know how long I'll be able to play out here, but I'm still enjoying the fact that I'm able to play again and to be able to compete", Woods said.

"I was determined to get it all back and get it back to five (under); I thought that would have been a hell of a fight", he said.

He added two birdies on his closing nine to finish at 3-under for the tournament, securing his spot to play the weekend. "I try to make those things the same every day and then just go from there". Simply getting to the weekend is sometimes all it takes. - Tiger Woods is swinging the golf club pain free.

"Get after it. Attack".

LaCava said the conditions don't change where he looks to make up strokes. "At this tournament, anything can happen". "I ended up getting back to three, so it was a good fight to get to that point, but as of right now I'm six back, which is definitely doable on this golf course especially with the weather coming in". Although he has not yet committed, Woods likely will play in the WGC Match Play event in two weeks before playing in the Masters.

Woods' first two shots on the hole ended up in the water and the resulting calamity left the 80-time victor on Tour humanised - if not humiliated - in front of a packed gallery and a somewhat-shocked live online and TV audience.

What has gamblers concerned is Woods' putting.

On the positive side, Woods continued to look comfortable with the putter after the 14-time major champion was seen working on his stroke with instructor Matt Killen earlier in the week.

"It's not painful now", he said. "I took something off that wedge and it flew a lot further than I thought".

Woods made no bogeys after the mishap at the 17th, making birdies at the second and seventh holes.

And he is correct that mistakes have been few and far between elsewhere. "I have hit anything but a 9-iron or a wedge in there for 12 years". They tee off at 1:27 p.m. Thursday. Everything's kind of based upon that.

"That's just because my lower back is fused, and so the stress has to go somewhere if I don't have movement, and so it's very important for me going forward since the surgery to keep pliable or else the stress is going to go somewhere else".

Woods chose not to push it last week by skipping Bay Hill, where he has won eight times.
