Tiger Woods proves his ability, shows some classy gameplay at Honda cup

Tiger Wood had been gone through some issues in his past life which somehow has affected his gameplay. But, the gameplay that he has shown to the fans has proved that that Wood remembers how to do this stuff and Wood is still on fire despite many obstacles. The match has proved that, despite the long gap from the game, due to his back injury and off-the-course issues, Wood knows how to get himself into contention.

The noise echoed during the match shows all, the crowd started roaring for wood as he emerged from a tunnel and onto the 17th tee at PGA National. He performed an unenviable task of hitting one of the toughest tee shots on the course, a 185-yard approach.

He is still recovering from spinal fusion surgery and now his effort in the second-round of the Honda Classic was a hint for all competitors that Wood is back in action.

Woods finished at 141, 1 over par and in a tie for 14th. He stated “I feel like I’m right there. I’m right where I can win a golf tournament. You know, four back on this golf course with 36 holes to go, anybody can win this golf tournament right now. It’s wide open.”

After missed the cut a week ago at the Genesis Open, Woods tried to improve his driving and grind out a lot of pars.

During the second round, Woods hit 8 of 14 fairways and 11 of 18 greens and 28 putts. But, he missed some good opportunities at the 10th and 12th.  He faced some troubled while playing the 15th, 16th and 17th holes, The Bear Trap which is named in honor of Jack Nicklaus. That time Brandt Snedeker nailed a 5-iron to a few feet at the 17th. Before going for 5-iron, wood was deciding between a 5-iron, 6-iron, and 17-iron. Woods stated, “I thought 5 [iron] is too much, but I can’t get 6 there.” However, it seems that Woods is now in form and he knows there is a long way to go.
