Tiger In Honda Mix Despite Brutal Friday In Florida

Thomas joins elite company, Tiger's promising performance and Korda's emotional comeback: What you missed

Defending US PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas shot a two-over 72 to be at one under, alongside Thomas Pieters (70), Louis Oosthuizen (72) and Daniel Berger (72). Another shot back are Dominic Bozzelli, Jamie Lovemark, Russell Henley and Ben Crane.

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. He totaled 16 (of 28) fairways and 21 greens in regulation, overshadowing four birdies with nine bogeys and a double, and ranked 125th in SG: Putting (-2.903).

Rory McIlroy was cruising along at even par before coming up short attempting to reach the par-5 18th in two shots. His 68 in Round 2 jumped him 58 spots to T24. But the wheels fell off on the back nine when Woods clubbed a pair of bogies on holes 15 and 17.

He was level par for his round after 14 holes with three birdies and three bogies on his card.

"We have to have respect for the player that at the end of the day is paramount", says Kennerly. "It's so tough in the wind, you have to hit the ball so well to hit your targets".

Tiger Woods has made it to the weekend at The Honda Classic at PGA National.

Simpson turned in an equally impressive round during the afternoon wave. After taking a couple of days off he returned to physical training and practice early this week but said what he really needs to get his game in shape is "tournament reps".

He'll have a good shot Sunday to best his T-23 at the Farmers Insurance Open.

The fourth-ranked Thomas is the highest-ranked player in the field this week.

NOTES: Patton Kizzire did not fare well playing in Woods' group Friday. While the Weather Channel forecasts possible morning rain showers, which could make the greens a little more receptive, sustained winds of around 14 miles per hour are still expected to increase the degree of difficulty on tee and approach shots.

"He swung 124 m.p.h. yesterday and 124 m.p.h. today", said Chamblee. He tied for third the following year before missing the cut again in 2017. "This is a hard golf course right now". Four back on this golf course with 36 holes to go?

He walked away with a double-bogey and surrendered another shot at the 16th, where his long birdie attempt went past the hole.

Fleetwood began the final round just one shot off the lead, but he made a huge error at the par-five third - the easiest hole at PGA National - when he drove into water and ran up a disappointing bogey-six. In addition to the 36 tee shots that found the water, only 42 players hit the green out of 141. After escaping the dreaded Bear Trap, Tiger drained a four-foot par putt to cap an adventurous day and get into contention heading into the weekend.

"It was just my seventh round (of 2018), so easily it was my best ball-striking day", he said.
