Maybe for now….After two days of play he’s one shot back….
That’s someplace he hasn’t been for quite a while….
Right now though?
The crowds are his and they love it!…..
“It’s all good,” Woods said, declaring his health just fine. “Accidents happen. I’ve had galleries run over me. When you play in front of a lot of people, things happen.”
He will, without question, play in front of masses of people over the weekend. This Masters, without Woods — as the 2014, ’16 and ’17 tournaments were staged, when he was injured — would be stellar. The five players tied for the lead at 7 under — Day, Molinari and Koepka were joined by Australia’s Adam Scott and South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen — each has a major championship to his name. Koepka has three. Among the three players tied with Woods at 6 under is Dustin Johnson, a former U.S. Open champion who’s a threat to win any time he puts a tee in the ground.
But the tournament has a decidedly different flavor because Woods is there. His last major came at the 2008 U.S. Open. But he contended over the weekend at the two most recent majors — last year’s British Open and PGA Championship.
“All of a sudden,” Woods said, “here I am at the Masters.”……
