article imageTiger Woods stroke off lead after round 2 at Open Championship

By Marcus Hondro     Jul 19, 2013 in Sports
Tiger Woods is very much in the hunt after the second round of the 142nd Open Championship at Muirfield in Scotland. Woods shot an even par 71 and then sat and watched as the field came back to him the rest of the day.
With his opening round -2 that's where Woods sits now, at -2, but he's no longer 3 strokes back but just one stroke behind leader Miguel Angel Jimenez, who also wound up the day even par and sits alone atop the leaderboard.
Woods is in a 4-way tie for second with Henrik Stenson, Dustin Johnson and Lee Westwood, who shot a -3, tying Charles Schwartzel (+1 overall) for the best score of the day. The opening round leader, Zach Johnson, had an up and down time of it and finished the day at +4 and now sits at -1 and in a tie for sixth.
The course continues to play hard and with the wind it was difficult for players to land the ball where they hit it and many of them called for a strong watering before things get underway Saturday.
Woods didn't set the world on fire with his round but it turned out to be a stronger round than most of those who shared the leaderboard with him yesterday had. He was saved again by a strong game on the greens.
“I’m putting good this year," he said. "It’s tough out there right now with the wind blowing a little bit. It’s moving putts. We had to allow for some. We needed to hold it or to move it. And that’s all feel. And hopefully you guess right.”
