Bogey: Tiger Woods

In his fourth competitive round since returning from back surgery, Woods not only failed to build on the momentum generated Thursday, he went hard in the other direction. The 14-time major champion double bogeyed the first, bogeyed the second, then spent the rest of the afternoon fighting his distance control and his tee ball. Nowhere was that more apparent than at the par-4 17th, when he pushed his first drive OB, then pulled his next ball left into the deep rough. A triple bogey sent him plummeting down the leader board, but Woods rallied to birdie the last and squeak into the weekend. There's not a lot for Woods to be optimistic about, but it beats not playing at all. -- S.W.
