(GULLANE, Scotland) — Tiger Woods finished Day 2 at the British Open 2-under 71 on Friday.
The winds played a key factor on putts, but overall Woods was happy with his performance.
“It was difficult out there today,” Woods said. “The wind obviously is a completely different direction than it was yesterday. On top of that we’ve had quite a bit of moisture on the greens overnight [because of light watering].”
“We actually made a couple of ball marks early. It obviously changed a lot as we were playing along. Our last four holes — our last five holes — it got awfully quick,” he continued.
Woods got key par saves on the 10th, 13th and 14th holes and got a birdie on his last putt on 18 to close the day.
“You continue playing, continue putting myself there,” he said. “I’m not going to win every major play in, but certainly I can try and put myself there. If I give myself enough opportunities, I’ll get my share, and I think I have so far in my career.”
Woods is seeking his first major win since 2008.
