Where the action is at the Honda Classic

Sitting four shots off the lead at the Honda Classic, Woods is confident that he is getting closer to claiming his 80th PGA Tour title.

Woods was to sign for a 71, one over par, which leaves him four from the Honda Classic lead.

Not with Tiger Woods speeding things up Friday at the Honda Classic. He was at 7-under 203. This is the third time List has had at least a share of the 36- hole lead, most recently in South Korea at the CJ Cup, where he shot 76-72 on the weekend.

However, the 42-year-old former world number one birdied the 17th and closed with a par to sit in a tie for 14th in his third tournament of 2018 as he continues his latest comeback following back surgery last year. I guess the guy, one of the Federal Bureau of Investigation guys that was following our group, he was asking him about the rules and he goes, "I'm a cop".

McIlroy was left to rue a triple bogey on the 17th hole which saw him plummet down the leaderboard while Shane Lowry was the only other Irishman to make the cut at the event. "At least I found it hard".

Woods watched Brandt Snedeker nail a 5-iron to a few feet at the 17th, but then the wind backed off. Getting some 15,000 people to quiet down proved almost impossible as Woods tried to figure out what to do.

On Thursday the Bear Trap played a collective 196 over par with just 24 birdies on the three holes while there were 47 double bogeys or worse. Woods said he grinded throughout his round, forced, at times, to muster all his talents just to make par.

With the usual fan frenzy that accompanies any Tiger appearance, the star of the show got the crowd amped up when he saved a par with a 13-foot putt after finding the rough off the 11th tee.

Making back-to-back starts on the PGA Tour for the first time since August 2015, Woods only hit half of the 14 fairways but scrambled well to equal his best opening round at PGA National.

Woods has now made the cut in two of his first three tournaments of the year.

His work around the greens remained solid, but his putter was definitely just lukewarm for most of the day. He shot 78 Friday and missed the cut.

Luke List hits onto the ninth green, which. For the second consecutive day, Berger had to roll up a pant leg to hit a shot out of the edge of the water.

But again on seventh, he bogeyed and on eighth he three-putted from eight feet for another bogey and ended at 71. He and the rest of the field battled the high winds, the tough course and the hard, crusty greens.

A flared iron into the water short right of the 15th green led to a double bogey and he followed with another dropped shot at the next.
