Hole 7: By 4, 456 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: The n ° 7 has been crossed safely. What was once an excellent round has become quite disappointing.

Hole 6: By 4, 399 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Hey! He is in the fairway! Tiger goes down on the right here on the # 6 with a metal for driveway. Nice shot.

SHOT APPROACH: He played this one conservatively and simply placed it on the green. A long birdie is waiting.

ON GREEN: Nothing to see here again. Two putts

TIGER THE DAY: Even at 15 (2 sub total).

Hole 5: By 4, 466 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Hey guess what? Tiger missed left again. He hit all fairways in his first nine games, but can not buy one for his second.

SHOT APPROACH: Despite all the fairways he misses, he continues to hit the greens in regulation. His second shot only stops on the front edge of the green. The bad news is that it is a right back pin.

ON GREEN: Good speed here from TW, but did not play enough pause. He has a few meters left and saves him.

TIGER THE DAY: Even at 14 (2 subtotal).

Hole 4: By 4, 394 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Tiger leaves to the left of the tee. He struggled with his first shots on his second nine so far.

SHOT APPROACH: Good look here for Tiger, who finds the green of the crude. It is about 30 feet for a bird. Expect another pair of two putts.

ON GREEN: Yes, what he said ^.

TIGER THE DAY: Even at 13 (2 subtotal).

Hole 3: By 3, 174 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Tiger finds the green, but he is short of cup. He will have 40 feet here on No. 3.

ON GREEN: This one has never had a chance. He did not break as much as Tiger wanted. At all. It converts for the peer.

TIGER THE DAY: Even at 12 (2 sub total).

Hole 2: By 5, 524 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Tiger's training finds the left brutal, making it an interesting second shot at par 5.

SHOT APPROACH: Well, he went for this one. Tiger lied well, but misses the green left.

AROUND THE GREEN: Back in the rough, Tiger reverses his shot in the downhill a bit as he did a few times on his first nine innings, and the ball is controlled near the cut. A great way to get closer without too much green.

ON GREEN: Tiger needed a birdie and he had it. He hits the short putt to get one of the four shots he dropped in 17th.

TIGER THE DAY: Even at 11 (2 subtotal).

Hole 1: By 4, 430 meters

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Driver after the turn and this one finds the rough left. First cut, no worries here.

SHOT APPROACH: His approach found the green safe, but was about thirty yards from the pin. Not a bad effort from the hard there.

ON GREEN: Tiger rolls it a little before the cut. Great lag putt to set up a pair of two putts.

TIGER THE DAY: 1-over to 10 (1 subtotal)

Hole 18: By 4, 460 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: After the disaster on the Green Island, Tiger's tee shot finds the ideal fairway here on the 18th.

SHOT APPROACH: Tiger sends it on the green, about 45 feet from the cup. He has work to do to win here.

ON GREEN: From this distance, you can expect two shots, but Tiger does not help. He leaves this one a little short and he will have 8 feet at par, which he will save.

TIGER THE DAY: 1-over to 9 (1 subtotal)

Hole 17: By 3, 146 meters

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Tiger observed birds on the famous Green Island yesterday, but he rinsed his ball today. He landed on the green, made a big jump and slowly rolled from the ledge into the water.

AROUND THE GREEN: From the drop zone, Tiger hits another in the drink. Oh man. He finally finds the green with his second shot of the fall zone. It was his fifth shot. 5th. Five.

ON GREEN: He is about 20 feet tall for a triple bogey. His tour was going so well, and now it turns out to be a disaster. He has two putts for a quadruple bogey. Yuck.

TIGER THE DAY: 1-over to 8 (1 subtotal)

Hole 16: Par 5, 509 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: MASHED POTATOES! Another big order for Tiger on the tee. He really beats this club with confidence so far.

SHOT APPROACH: Tiger almost found water with this one, and it looked like he had hit a mudball. He landed right next to the green, about fifty feet from the front left pines.

ON GREEN: The tiger hit this one at about five feet and converts the birdie putt. The crowd roared, and for good reason: Tiger's is only two shots from behind.

TIGER THE DAY: 3-under to 7 (5 subtotal)

Hole 15: By 4, 477 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: If the Big Cat continues to swing the big stick like this all day, the field is in trouble. It's another perfect training in the middle of the fairway.

SHOT APPROACH: Good look here for Tiger, who finds the center-right of the green. Safe play, 30 feet before the cut.

ON GREEN: TW throws this one nicely, but he misses the cut. It cleans for the peer. To move on

TIGER THE DAY: 2-under to 6 (4 subtotal)

Hole 14: By 4, 482 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Grip it. Tear it. Turn it. Tiger smokes a pilot along the fairway, here at number 14. He is a little braggart before today.

SHOT APPROACH: Not good, not bad here from Tiger. He is on the green on the left, well 50 feet from the cup.

ON GREEN: Tiger's solid putt on number 14, trolling it just inside five feet to set up a normal backup.

TIGER THE DAY: 2-under to 5 (4 subtotal)

Hole 13: By 3, 150 meters

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Tiger sends an iron on the front of the green and his ball makes a small turn on the bangs.

ON GREEN: Stop me if you've heard this before, but Tiger's is 15 feet for a birdie. And it's gone! Tiger drops it for a second consecutive birdie. Super putt and he perfectly controlled the speed.

TIGER THE DAY: 2-under to 4 (4 subtotal)

Hole 12: By 4, 304 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Tiger walked the green yesterday at par-4, and he's just right on the green today with an incredible chance to argue for a bird that's needed to get off to a good start this turn.

AROUND THE GREEN: No doubt Tiger was heading for the cup. He strikes a shine in the slope, lets it appear and release it just in front of the hole.

ON GREEN: It's an easy birdie for Tiger. Beautifully played hole.

TIGER THE DAY: 1 to 3 (3 sub total)

Hole 11: By 5, 565 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: After a long wait, Tiger scratched his number 11 driver in the middle of the fairway. I do not know what was withheld, but they waited for at least 10 minutes.

SHOT APPROACH: The second shot of Tiger finds the rough left of the green. According to the lie, he should be able to get up and go down for an early birdie.

AROUND THE GREEN: A nice little flick here for Tiger lands on the slope leading to the green, makes some jumps and checks about 15 feet under the hole.

ON GREEN: The first struggles continue for Tiger. His birdie putt has never had a chance, but he is able to put everything back in order. If he wants to score and take advantage of early conditions, Tiger must take advantage of his length on the longest holes.

TIGER THE DAY: Even at 2 (2 subtotal)

Hole 10: By 4, 405 yards

OUTSIDE THE TEE: Tiger strikes a beauty with a fairway wood shot from his first tee of the day.

SHOT APPROACH: He finds the green and turns it below the cup. He will have 15 feet for a birdie.
