Woods takes share of Valspar clubhouse lead

Tiger Woods is looking to improve upon yesterday's 1-under par performance in the first round of the Valspar Championship, and he's off to a good start today. Woods made a blistering start by carding back-to-back birdies at the third and fourth holes and made two more on the inward nine.

The 14-time major champion was four under through 14 holes of his second round on Friday, which left him in the outright lead at five under par.

Woods' playing partners Henrik Stenson and Jordan Spieth weren't as fortunate in the first round.

McIlroy's only birdie in an opening 74 came courtesy of holing a bunker shot on the seventh, his 16th hole of the day, while two bogeys and a clumsy double-bogey seven on the fifth left him three over par.

Tiger Woods says the continued success of Phil Mickelson serves as an example to all golfers entering the latter stages of their careers. "We as a group got fooled a lot today".




Yes, I know that sounds insane to say, but if there is one course that Woods knows how to not only minimize his mistakes but take advantage of, it's Augusta National. Woods built from there, using lovely approach shots on the 12th and 13th holes to set up easy birdie putts before settling into consistency with six straight pars.

It made for an awkward stance to say the least and Woods would make contact with the tree as he made his escape, but luckily there was no serious injury.

The last time Woods led a tournament at any point was in 2015, and the last time he won one was way back in 2013, when he counted among his wins The Players Championship and two other WGC events, finishing second in the FedEx Cup standings. I'm hitting the shots. It's his fourth tournament of the calendar year after a 23rd-place tie at the Farmers Insurance Open, a missed cut at the Genesis Open and a ninth-place finish at the Honda Classic.

'I keep getting a little bit better here and there, making these subtle tweaks. "For me, I'm ecstatic to have a chance to play again and to have a chance to win golf tournaments and compete". "Once (the fans) got cleared out I figured I could put some speed into this thing and I was going to feel it".
