Tiger Woods, after 27 holes at the Players Championship, is in jeopardy of missing the cut. Woods, who carded an even-par 72 on Thursday, is still at even par through his first nine holes on Friday morning.
Normally that wouldn’t be a problem, but the filed is going low on Friday, making for a 1-under cut line. Unless Tiger finds a birdie or two on the front nine, he’ll end up falling short of the weekend.
Woods started the day off with six-straight pars before finally nailing a birdie on No. 7. However, he followed that up with a par and a bogey to place him at even-par on a day when he desperately needs to find his way into the 60’s.
If he doesn’t string together at least one or two birdies (without a bogey) in his next nine holes, Tiger’s second tournament appearance since the Masters will end in disappointment.
Facing another big putt on 18, but unlike last night it won’t drop.
Bogey drops him back to E. Currently outside projected cut line with nine holes to go.

If he misses the cut, it’ll be just the 18th time Woods has missed a 36-hole cut since turning pro in 1996, and the second time this year.
