Comeback man Tiger Woods believes he can win a PGA title

Through the first 14 holes, Woods challenged for the lead.

There was to be no dream scenario, as befitting the encounters with harsh reality Woods has become accustomed to just when progress appears rapid.

Woods started the day tied for 15th on the leaderboard and climbed as high as eighth with a pair of birdies.

"This is a hard golf course right now, " Woods said.

"I've been doing it since I was 19 years old".

The Bear Trap almost derailed his round when Woods rinsed his tee shot on No. 15 and ended up with a double bogey. He went driver and found a fairway bunker, placed his third shot in a green-side bunker and missed a short putt to salvage a bogey. One is left to wonder what on earth will transpire if this fallen genius actually wins again.

Cubs, Darvish agree to 6-year deal
At 31 years old, Darvish no longer looks like the ace he was at his best in 2013 when he finished second in AL Cy Young voting. Even with some red flags, Darvish is a huge addition for a team that will compete for another World Series in 2018.

Bob Harig of ESPN.com wrote a 1-over-par 71 left him just four strokes back of leaders Luke List and Jamie Lovemark on a day when just 13 players broke par in hard conditions. Four players, including Tommy Fleetwood, were tied for third at 2-under. "It's wide open", said Woods, who dropped to World No.544 after his series of back injuries, via Fox Sports.

"There's really no reason to do that", Woods said. "I didn't feel like I was actually holding the club". The Golf Channel analyst accused Woods of so many wrongs, including committing "self-mutilation" with his technique.

Beginning the tournament on the back nine, Woods reached 2-under with birdies on two of his first four holes. Seemed like every hole that we had a right-to-left win, the pin was on the right and vice versa. He's not hitting fairways (10 of 28), greens (17 of 36) and he's 52nd in strokes-gained: putting.Kelly Kraft posted 69 and jumped up 42 spots to T14. At the 10th, Woods battered a drive 361 yards into prime position.

"I was unfortunately so physically debilitated I could not compete", he added. "I feel like I've made some nice tweaks". And he's hitting the ball long.

He was not the only one finding trouble in the Bear Trap - holes 15 through 17 - as 72 balls landed in water in round two. After not firing on some of his favorite tracks on the West Coast, he opened with 69 in the tough conditions at the Champion Course. "Pretty much the preparation for everything but what we want it to be". "He was miraculous, and, well, he looked very much like that the last couple of days". But yeah, it's probably the furthest thing from Augusta right now around here.

Defending champion Rickie Fowler had six bogeys on his front nine and shot 77 to miss the cut. Ian Poulter, Graeme McDowell, Luke Donald and Padraig Harrington were afforded the same fate.
