Watch Tiger Woods rescue his round with an eagle

Watch Tiger Woods rescue his round with an eagle

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.

Woods is targeting a fourth Open Championship and could use the Irish Open as a warm-up before his crack at 15th Major golf title later in July. - Thousands of fans woke up early Friday morning to watch as Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler hit the links for their second round at The Players Championship. Woods won seven of those events, Mickelson two, with Tiger holding a 69.66 to 69.88 scoring edge, as per Woods' official site.

Mickelson blamed fatigue after the strain of fighting his way to a share of fifth in last week's Wells Fargo Championship. "I feel like I'm putting well, I'm just never inside that range which I should be with the irons I'm having". Thursday it was poor driving.

Woods and Mickelson rarely played together on Thursdays and Fridays in their heyday, with tournament organizers keeping them apart to spread their top talent across the TV schedules.

"Boy it was nice to turn the round completely around there at 9", mused Woods after the round.

"So I love that we're paired together", Mickelson, a five-time major victor, told reporters earnestly.

"This just part of the job".

The 42-year-old was staring at a six when he pushed his third to the right of the green and his pitch pulled up 10 feet short, but he rattled in the putt to limit the damage to a bogey which left him at level par. His average distance from the pin was almost 39 feet. He was able to close out the front nine, however, with an eagle on the par-5 ninth.

"I wouldn't say it's gravy, but it's unbelievable", Woods said. "Obviously I have some work to do to get off that list". And I just kind of ran out at the end. Mickelson followed his 79 with a 73 and finished at 152, 8 over par.

Jordan Spieth even said it was "harder to win than a major".

But the 2015 victor then pushed his drive too far right at the sixth and suffered the misfortune of his ball appearing to get stuck up a tree, forcing him back to the tee and leading to a double-bogey six. 6 (losing his tee shot in a tree) and 7, eventually leading to a one-under 71 that saw him finish one over for the tournament, costing him a spot in the field on the weekend. He has now played 28 rounds this year in his comeback from spinal fusion surgery. "Hopefully give myself some more looks".

On Johnson, Bale added: "I really love watching Dustin Johnson play".
