When Tiger Woods started his second round of the US Open he was 3 strokes over par. When he finished his second round of the US Open he would still be 3 stokes over par. Tiger Woods didn’t make up any strokes to par, but he did advance in the field and will make the projected cut which is expected to be 4 over par to play the weekend.
Woods is still in this tournament. No one has made any significant moves today and the lead is only 3 under par. Woods is presently tied for 29th place with 15 other guys. Merion is living up to its reputation of one old tough golf course. Tiger started his day making some birdies early in his round.
He made a par on his first hole then made birdie on holes 2 & 4. It looked like it was going to be a Tiger type of day until he gave back a stroke on the 7th hole. He would finish his front nine at 1 under par. Tiger couldn’t find another birdie until the 13th hole and he gave the stroke right back in the 14th with a bogey. Woods would then par the next 3 holes before making a bogey on the 18th to remain at 3 over par for the tournament.
The weekend is going to be interesting. Many think Woods hurt his left wrist more than he is letting on during the first round and it is keeping him from making up any ground. I think Tiger is being truthful when he said his wrist is alright following yesterday’s round. The course is playing tough. Look at how the rest of the field is playing.
No one is able to make up any ground at this yes US Open. This is the kind of golf the USGA wants to see during an open. Tiger is going to have to work hard this weekend.
