Woods fired a two-over-par 72 Friday to make the cut at the PGA Championship, but his even-par 140 total leaves him eight shots behind leader Li Haotong of China.
“Tomorrow I’m going off early and hopefully I can get it going, drive the ball like I did today, hit my irons a little bit more crisp, and be a little bit more aggressive on the putts,” said the 15-time major champion.
Even if his game isn’t as sharp as it used to be, history has shown it is never wise to count Woods out, especially after his stunning Masters victory last year.
Woods teed off for the second straight day with former world number one Rory McIlroy and current No. 1 Justin Thomas. The marquee trio all made the cut with Thomas sneaking in on the cut line at one over 141.
