Tiger Woods’ Second Round at the ZOZO Championship Did Not Disappoint

The roars were much quieter today at the ZOZO Championship, delayed by torrential rain in recent days, where Tiger Woods finished his second round with a consecutive 64 and a 2-shot lead.  Woods took his opportunities and didn’t let his foot off the gas pedal.

On the first hole, Tiger started with a 3 wood that went down the right side and was in far better shape than his first day leaving him for a good approach.  The approach was spot on leaving himself a three foot birdie putt that he made, leaving him one back from the home town favorite Hideki Matsuyama.

Tiger’s drive on the par 4 second hole was solid, but his approach was less then, leaving him wide of the green.  After a nifty little chip, he notched a bogey.

Woods had four straight pars before the seventh hole.  He faced a 25-foot putt on the par 3 hole.  Continuing his strong putting at the ZOZO Championship, Tiger drained it for birdie and eventually finished his front nine with a 33.


On 10, which was shortened immensely to a 140 yard par 4 due to the heavy rain, Tiger left himself with a 20-foot putt for eagle. After a two-putt birdie, Woods moved to 8 under and just one shot back of the lead.

Tiger carried that momentum to the par 4 11th hole where he drilled a 15-foot putt for another big birdie.

Tiger carded a birdie at the par 3 13th and went par-par-par through 14, 15, and 16.  On the par 4 17th, he had an approach that just looked too easy for him, leaving him with a tap-in birdie to take the lead.

Tiger went on to birdie the 18th hole and finished his second round with a 31.

Woods now leads the ZOZO Championship heading into the all-important moving day, albeit delayed a bit.
