Tiger Woods one back as Conners keeps Valspar lead

11 March 2018

Tiger Woods has made millions of dollars playing golf, so why was he rummaging through a woman's handbag during Friday's second round of the Valspar Championship??

For so many years, such a roar caused far more consternation than celebration among the rest of the field. I hit a lot more good quality iron shots, felt comfortable with the putter.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Woods said: "I had a good time".

When he drained another long one at the 10th for back-to-back birdies, things got really loud at Innisbrook, but he finally cooled off down the stretch, dropping his only shot at the 13th before making his last birdie at the 14th.

"I just need to get a little bit more tournament time in".

Woods atoned with a ideal putt from 12 feet at the next, and he responded to a bogey at the ninth with back-to-back birdies to start the inward nine which got him to within two shots of the leader before mistakes at each of the next two holes saw him slip to level par. On the next hole, the par-4 10th, Woods rolled in a 22-footer for birdie to briefly seize a share of the lead.

Before this season, the last time Woods had any chance anywhere on a Sunday was at the 2015 Wyndham Championship, but on that day he succumbed to a 50-year-old Davis Love III. And then Woods missed again.

He was on the opposite side of the course as Woods, though he could hear him.

But despite the obvious teething problems, Mourinho does not see Sanchez as a weakness in the United team. But I think at least one point would have been absolutely fair for us, but we have to take that as well".

"The biggest challenge tomorrow is that there's a packed leaderboard". The world number five only dropped one shot while the highlight of his round was a holed approach to the 11th that brought him an eagle.

Woods hasn't won since his seven-shot victory in the Bridgestone Invitational in August 2013. Rosy (Justin Rose) has been playing well.

He's played sound, consistent golf to put himself in contention. I needed something to happen.

Woods will tee off in the penultimate group alongside Snedeker on Sunday, with five strokes separating the top 17 players ahead of the final round.

Kim Jong-un: talks with Trump could result in 'great achievement'
That is 100% true, but we do not send the President of the United States , especially if it's Donald Trump , over there to do it. That, South Koreans know, was reason enough to broker the talks and, once under way, to keep them alive as long as possible.

He safely made the cut at one over, along with a trio of fellow Australians. I am excited. I feel good. "I want them to kind of experience it, which is why I really hope he wins, if not this week, soon". "That was nice. It was nice to get the momentum, keep the momentum going".

Snedeker, coming off a sternum injury that knocked him out of golf for the second half of past year, was equally impressive as the guy in his group everyone came to see. He arrived approximately an hour before his tee time, warming up in near darkness - and did not fare so well.

And while Woods gave an encouraging report about his future health last September when he served as an assistant for the U.S. Presidents Cup team, he also cautioned he had no idea if he could play golf, let alone compete at the highest level.

Tariffs could have unintended effects in Trump country
Worsening trade ties will test China's policy of " strategic composure" in dealing with Trump's America First ethos. We can not possibly be a threat to national security in the USA , so we are counting on being excluded", she said.
