Not so much as a 37-foot putt to save standard on the final hole could fix Tiger Woods’ sad round – or get him to stop and converse with the media – on Friday.

The standard 4 14th hole embodied Woods’ second round. His methodology came up short of the green, leaving him a putt of almost 73 feet. It flew by the hole and off the rear of the green. He required two additional putts from that point and ended up with a bogey.
It seemed a bogey on the standard 4 eighteenth would be fitting end for Woods, who drove it into a fairway bunker and afterward hit his second shot only 52 yards, forgetting about him 161 yards. His methodology went right of the pin, leaving him a putt of very nearly 37 feet for standard. However, Woods, who is just 57th in the field in strokes picked up in putting, made the long putt to finish strong.
