Looking at Thursday’s round, it should’ve been better thanks to a couple of great looks for birdie that were missed on Nos. 4 and 5 and that pair of three-jacks on Nos. 8 and 9. It also could’ve been worse had it not been for some clutch par saves on the back nine.

At 1 over, Woods will need to battle to make the cut (top 70 and ties) which currently sits at even par. On the pro side, he’s gotten plenty of rest since he walked off the course early yesterday afternoon for his surgically repaired body to recover. On the con side, it’s been raining all day. It’s chilly and a little windy. He won’t be comfortable and will need to hit fairways if he has any chance (on Thursday he hit 9/14) to take advantage of the soft greens.

The best score from the morning wave is 4 under so far, so birdies are out there. Will he be fit enough to find them is the question.
