Tiger Woods left the course last week with a leg injury. Many thought Woods could end up missing the Masters Tournament. What does Tiger do? He returns to a place he is very familiar with, plays some of the best golf he has played in a couple of years and finds himself tied for the lead heading into the weekend at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Tiger has won there before. Woods put together a pair of rounds in the sixties shooting 69 on Thursday and a 65 today. Woods is tied with Charlie Wi who also put together back to back rounds in the sixties, shooting 68 today and a neat little 66 on Thursday.
Another face we are starting to get use to seeing on the top of the leader board siting only one stroke off the lead is Jason Dufner. An argument can be made about the way Dufner has been playing on the Florida swing stating that this guy is going to win one of these sooner or later. Dufner put some great rounds together last week and is doing it again this week at Bay Hill. Dufner shot a 66 in round one and 69 in his second round.
Not only will Tiger be chased by Dufner over the week end Major champion Winner GRAEME MCDOWELL is also siting one stroke back. If today’s 63 is a sign of things to come this weekend at Bay Hill Tiger will have his hands full with McDowell. McDowell shot even par in his first round and was nine under in his second round today. If McDowell can stay hot all week end things could get interesting come Sunday afternoon at By Hill. Stay tune folks we have got us a golf tournament at hand.
