Tiger Woods to roar again at British Open

"I'm excited for the morning", Fowler said Thursday evening.

He wasn't the only one in the group to stumble.

In-form Australian Jason Day fired a second-round 67 to vault up the leaderboard at The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass, while Tiger Woods sits right on the projected cut line after carding a 71.

Maybe if Woods hadn't nearly won the Valspar Championship two months ago, the expectations for him might have been more reasonable.

You could make the argument that Woods was actually a little bit worse on Friday than he was on Thursday despite notching a better score.

"I've struggled on the greens here". Carnoustie can be a brutal golf course and it was brutal that year. Both players are more than likely going to miss the cut.

Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose have a chance to overtake Johnson in the rankings if he does not have a solid showing at this tournament.

"I think it is going to be an incredible event and it will surprise everybody". "It doesn't bother me".

Mickelson was seven-over par and made three double bogeys from the 14th to 17th holes.

Fourteen-time major victor Tiger Woods will play at The Open Championship at Carnoustie in July.

Woods and Mickelson rarely played together on Thursdays and Fridays in their heyday, with tournament organizers keeping them apart to spread their top talent across the TV schedules. "With these greens as soft as they are, I didn't take advantage of the opportunities I had to shoot a good number".

Woods led the way with an even-par 72 that included a rinsed tee shot at the 18th hole and a 10-foot bogey-saving putt.

"That's golf, unfortunately", Woods said.

"They were into it early", Woods said. He gave back a shot with a closing bogey on the front nine. "And I'm just so thankful to be able to have this opportunity again because I didn't know if I would ever have it".

The quality of the golf did little to keep fans awake. Mickelson shot seven-over 79 for his highest score in the event since 2000 when he recorded an 83 in the first round. Fowler joined Mickelson with a missed cut, and Woods will have to sweat out the afternoon to see if he gets another two cracks at TPC Sawgrass on the weekend. "I was anxious about energy this week".

"I just didn't want to drop a shot, didn't want to shoot an over-par round", Woods said.

Day, a victor last week at the Wells Fargo Championship, fired five birdies in a blemish-free round to sit at eight-under for the championship, two strokes back from co-leaders Charl Schwartzel (66) and Patrick Cantlay (68) in a share of fifth spot midway through day two.
