"Yesterday he hit one on this hole 346, which was the longest tee shot". He finished with a 1-over par 71.
"This is a hard golf course right now", Woods told reporters after Friday's round.
Rory Sabbatini, Luke List and Jamie Lovemark are sharing the lead at four-under, while in-form Englishman Tommy Fleetwood and former US Open victor Webb Simpson are a shot back sharing fourth.
The 42-year-old Woods may not be the same dominant force he was in his prime, but he is always going to be a draw as a 14-time major victor with 79 Tour titles. He's not hitting fairways (10 of 28), greens (17 of 36) and he's 52nd in strokes-gained: putting.Kelly Kraft posted 69 and jumped up 42 spots to T14.
Then came the bogey on fifth, where his tee shot landed six feet from the cup, but instead of a birdie he bogeyed with a three-putt. Woods has encountered far worse in recent times than the a bite from the Bear Trap - PGA National's infamous set of three holes from the 15th - but what transpired there stung nonetheless.
Swede Alex Noren, who had shared the first round lead with Simpson, shot a four-over 75 to join Woods' group of 10 at 141.
Woods watched Brandt Snedeker nail a 5-iron to a few feet at the 17th, but then the wind backed off. Getting some 15,000 people to quiet down proved almost impossible as Woods tried to figure out what to do.
"I just need to get better at it", Woods said. "But I am very happy to get in there with a good score to start out".
"I feel a lot more confident in most areas of my game", Thomas said when asked how his game has progressed since missing the cut in his first Honda Classic in 2015.
The big moment was the 17th hole, 184 waters into the wind and over water. Crust greens and windy conditions made for a brutal test as the course played 73.156. Fowler, a pre-tourney 9/1 fave outright, misses his second cut of the season in five events, second in his last three starts (Farmers). "It's not something that I'm used to because I've never felt like this before, but this is the new norm". "And they're hard golf shots". Driver is not a huge weapon here because the fairways are so fast.
Of course, Woods would not admit it, but that will give him great satisfaction.
"Maybe I ought to have been a little smarter to pick some easier venues, " he said.
At the mid-point of yesterday's round, Woods appeared more content than recently stated with the adulation and attention the Florida crowd were paying him. The 33-year-old former Ringgold, Ga., resident who now lives in Seal Beach, Calif., had two birdies Thursday, when his promising round was undone by a triple-bogey 7 on the 16th hole.
"It's kind of irrelevant because there's going to be 30 guys within a couple shots of the lead, " List said.
His putter and everything else failed him on the disastrous No. 3-his 12th hole of the day-when he missed an opportunity to make up ground on the final par five of his round. We all know that.
