Tiger Woods lit up Firestone Country Club's South Course for a bogey-free, 9-under-par 30-31=61 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
Oh, where to start. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling. His most impressive up-and-down was his last. After driving into the trees right at the par-4 18th hole, he knocked his approach toward a hospitality tent. After a free drop and a blast onto the fringe past the cup, Woods drilled the nine-yard comebacker into the heart for par. It secured a share of the course record, which he had already co-owned (2000) with José Maria Olazábal (1990). The 61 also matches his personal low on the PGA TOUR achieved three times previously. He sandwiched an eagle from 20'2" at the par-5 second hole with seven birdies, including respective conversions of 13 feet, 20'5" and 14'1" at the third, 12th and 13th holes. Woods kept his card clean with another par save from 22'7" at 6. He reached the midpoint in 13-under 127, seven strokes clear of two in second place. Aug. 2 - 5:01 pm et
