A Second Round 68 Keeps Tiger Around For The Weekend

The tournament organizers are probably waking up from a massive hangover this morning after partying all night now that the main attraction at the Frys.com Open has made the cut.  After the first round spectacle, which Tiger Woods called his worst putting day ever, people started questioning his game again and Tiger Woods was on the verge of missing his second professional cut in a row, something he hasn’t done since back in the mid 1990′s.

But all is good this morning at CordeValle Golf Club, and the only thing making it better would be Tiger Woods shooting a third round 64 to move into contention on Sunday.  Paul Casey is leading the way after two rounds at 8-under, with somebody by the name of Bud Cauley at 7-under and Ernie Els tied for second as well.

Saturday is moving day in the golf world, and we will see if Tiger Woods can get something going today and make that move we haven’t seen in god knows how long.  The 68 yesterday just seemed like one of those grind it out days again, where he made six birdies but also made three bogeys.  I am just waiting for that day when he has a flawless round with five or six birdies and no bogeys and we aren’t seeing him in bunkers and the rough and throwing his clubs around.

I am one of the ones who hopes to see Tiger back, and competing again for major championships.  Hell, I think the whole golf world wants to see that.  But until he just stops trying to make swing changes and goes back to just having fun on the golf course we are all going to have to see the struggling Tiger.

Unless he shoots 64 today.

Yo! I'm Ryan. Thanks for checking out Front9Back9 Golf Blog! I live in San Antonio, TX with my wife and little baby boy. Everyday when my wife is not looking, I check to see if my son is strong enough yet to grip a golf club. I swear we are getting closer each day! As for my golf game, it's just there. All I try to do is hit it straight and limit my bogeys. One day we will get there.
