The par-five ninth-which Woods eagled on Thursday-offered another chance to break away from the cut line and bolt further into red numbers. Though we've seen a softer, more humbled Woods in recent months, it's obvious he still burns to give us at least snippets of the Tiger of old, not just an old Tiger.
Mickelson blamed fatigue after the strain of fighting his way to a share of fifth in last week's Wells Fargo Championship.
He hit the green at the hard 237-yard par-3 eighth and lipped out on a 42-foot birdie try.
Lahiri hopes to regain form at Players Championship
Scott, the 2004 Players victor , carded a three-under-par 69 at TPC Sawgrass to sit just three shots back of the clubhouse lead. Simpson's struggles at the 17th boiled down to being unsure of about hitting a pitching wedge or sand wedge from 140 yards.
While Woods was hanging in there, Mickelson went off a cliff.
He is the second Wilson Staff player to win in an Open Championship playoff at Carnoustie, following Scot Paul Lawrie winning on home soil in 1999 with another supreme performance with his irons over the challenging closing holes.
"I didn't know what to expect this year", Woods said.
Simpson's sand wedge bounced off the boards fronting the island green and ended up in the water, leading to a double bogey.
Modi Inaugurates Janakpur-ayodhya Bus Link, Pledges Rs 100 Crore Aid
Describing Nepal as the centre of spiritualism and philosophy, Modi didn't forget to call Nepal as the birthplace of Lord Buddha. Coming just months after the devastating April 2015 natural disaster , this fuelled anti-India sentiments in Nepal.
'Rory is committed to helping build the strongest field we can get and I am sure he has taken the time to chat with the guys on the PGA Tour informally.
"I didn't quite swing it right today, and I didn't quite have the shape or ball flight". "Tyrrell (Hatton) wanted me to touch his putter for him on 15, which I think is within the rules". "I feel like they're tough to read but today I felt like I did a very good job reading the greens", Johnson said. "But I wasn't close enough".
Hours later, bogeys on the 18th hole by Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas - who were playing in the same group - dropped the cut number from 142 to 141, meaning Woods will have an early-morning tee time Saturday. "If we were able to put all of our facets of the game together I think there would be a lot more tournament winners out here". "But I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it if we just went straight to the final round".
Mickelson, who carded a disastrous 79 on Thursday, was 9 over for the tournament at the turn and clawed back only a stroke on his second nine. He lipped out three birdie putts and burned the edge two other times. The massive crowd thinned out on the back nine before picking back up at 16, 17 and 18 - the most raucous holes at the Stadium Course.
IPL 2018: DD Vs SRH Highlights, Delhi Daredevils Lost Do-or-die Match
Pant was involved in both the runouts! However, it was an off day for the duo as they were taken to the cleaners by Rishabh Pant . Dhawan scored unbeaten 92 runs that included nine fours and 4 sixes while Kane Williamson hit 83 runs off 53 balls.
But the 2015 victor then pushed his drive too far right at the sixth and suffered the misfortune of his ball appearing to get stuck up a tree, forcing him back to the tee and leading to a double-bogey six.
