By the time you read this his round may well be over. I'm back, just took time away to watch the TV screen where Tiger did what I always seem to see him do-- miss takeable putts! He could have birdied the par 3 15th and that would have set him up for a 15 today, Friday. He may still get it. He murders the Firestone Course in Akron, Ohio. He's leading the Bridgestone at the moment by seven shots. Par is 70 and he is 9 under for the day with four three holes remaining. The 16th is a par 5 but I doubt he'll reach it in two. How can he putt this well in the first two rounds when he missed so badly two weeks ago at the British Open? That's golf!
But now the Bridgestone has a story line for the weekend, can Tiger win his fifth tournament of the year with the final major coming up next week, the PGA championship? We'll see. But it's been an unexpectedly fun Friday watching the Golf Channel with Tiger trying to become the sixth player in PGA history to shoot 59. His best round on tour to date is 61 and that looks to be in reach at the least.
