Poor putting costs Tiger Woods on day two at BMW

Poor putting costs Tiger Woods on day two at BMW

Tiger Woods watches his tee shot on the third hole during the first round of the BMW Championship golf tournament at Aronimink GC.

Tiger Woods electrified the gallery at the BMW Championship Thursday with one of the greatest opening rounds in his illustrious career, as the 42-year-old carded an unbelievable 62 at Aronimink Golf Club.

Starting on the back nine, McIlroy matched Woods' hot start with three birdies in his first four holes.

Woods made seven birdies and an eagle in his opening 62 in which he was in superb form with the putter that he used for 13 of his 14 major championship victories, but it was a different story on day two in Philadelphia.

But after ranking second in the field Thursday in strokes gain, approach to the hole, Woods dropped to 35th in that category.

Cowboys offered second-rounder for Earl Thomas in last week
Thomas had been working out primarily in his native Texas, and specifically in Austin, where he attended the University of Texas. The pressure is on the Cowboys now to make the Seahawks an offer they would accept, and so far, that hasn't happened.

Woods ended a year ago ranked 656 in the world but has risen to 26 on the back of what has been a consistent and largely uninterrupted season after spinal fusion surgery. From there, he opted to go with putter and came up about six feet short before pouring in one final birdie. "Boy, shooting 29 on the front nine helps".

But consecutive bogeys at his 16th and 17th holes put paid to that notion, before he birdied the par-five ninth after hoisting a five-wood second shot to the heart of the green.

American Xander Schauffele, who hopes to secure the last spot on the USA Ryder Cup team, is in third place with a 63, while Rickie Fowler, who played alongside Woods, returned from injury to shoot a 65.

"That round today was easily six or seven under par, and it turned into even par which is not what I needed to do today".
