Tiger Woods flirting with the cut line in second round
Tiger Woods is still working to find his feel and flirting with the cut line.
The 14-time major winner had an up-and-down day at Torrey Pines on Friday shooting a 2-under 70 to move to 4 under for the tournament. The cut line at the end of his round was at 3 under.
Woods was characteristically a little wild off the tee as he hit seven of 14 fairways on the afternoon, but he stayed consistent with his Round 1 performance by hitting 13 of 18 greens.
But on the much easier of the two courses at the Farmers Insurance Open, he was likely expecting a better outcome.
Woods showed frustration throughout his 18 holes as he sits inside the cutline, but at the moment, well back of contention.
Golf is hard.

The 43-year-old had his moments on the afternoon though as he knocked in a birdie on his eighth hole which was No. 17, but he followed that up with a double bogey at his ninth which put him back to even par on his round.
He did manage to knock in back-to-back birdies on his back nine which included a chip-in birdie on his 13th hole.
