With that in mind, here are some of his key stats from his two rounds at Congressional:
GREENS IN REGULATION
STROKES GAINED PUTTING
As we noted on Thursday, Tiger's iron play was significantly worse at Congressional than in 2013, when he was among the best on tour. That trend continued on Friday; he hit just 10 greens once again to finish T-92nd in that category for the tournament. To put that in perspective: when Tiger plays his best, he usually hits somewhere between 12 and 14 greens per round.
Although he improved by almost a full stroke on the greens on Friday, his putting is also a slight concern. But the good news is that number will improve the better his iron play gets, because he'll be placing himself in better positions to make more putts.
There are positives Tiger will draw from his first competitive round back from injury, among them the knowledge that -- now that he's pain-free -- improving his iron play offers him a clear route back to the top of the game.
