Tiger Woods improves at Quicken Loans

He shot 3 under today, and Bob Harig writes: "Friday offers an opportunity to build on what he started. It still seems strange to talk about Woods in such a manner, given his 79 PGA Tour victories, 14 major championships and all the rest. But reality is that he’s ranked 266th in the world." Turns the table

That was an ugly birdie putt for Tiger at the 17th. Ran it by a good bit when he had a good look. Rolls in par putt. -3, 1 to go.

Bob Harig @BobHarig

A 4-footer for par at the 16th after birdie putt went by keeps Tiger at -3 with 2 to play.

Tiger sees birdie putt at 15th just curl off. A par to stay at -3 with 3 to go. Lowest round this year is 66 at Greenbrier
