(KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C.) — Don’t look now but Tiger Woods is in a three-way tie for the lead after two rounds of play at the 94th PGA Championship. Woods along with Vijay Singh and Carl Pettersson share the lead headed into the weekend.
Woods was able to go 1-under 71 that on the toughest scoring day in PGA Championship history at Kiawah Island since the tournament switched to stroke play in 1958.
“It was tough out there — wow,” Woods said of the 30 mph wind gusts that disturbed almost every golfers play on Friday.
Woods is happy to still be in the hunt though. “The last couple majors, I’m right there with a chance and I like that.”
There were 41 players who failed to break 80 on Friday. Singh was the first to post at 4-under 140 and is seeking his first PGA Tour win in over four years.
“After a while, you don’t really think about your score,” said Singh. “You just think about each hole, each shot and just try not to mess up. It was one of my better rounds. I didn’t strike the ball as good, but I scored really, really well. And I think that was the key.”
Ian Poulter is one shot back of the leaders. Rory McIlroy and Jamie Donaldson are two back.
