Revived Tiger Woods insists he can win from four shots back

Justin Thomas – the clear favourite at the Honda after round one

However, he maintained his composure to shoot level par on his back nine and get into the clubhouse with a second consecutive 72 for a four over par total, seven shots behind leaders Luke List, and Jamie Lovemark as the Florida winds caused havoc on day two with just 11 players in the whole field breaking par.

Right behind was Justin Thomas, the PGA Tour player of the year.

Much like Friday's opening nine, it didn't take a low number for Tiger Woods to get within striking distance early on moving day at the Honda Classic. He was at 7-under 203.

The eagle hole-out got Fleetwood to 3 under for the tournament and one back of the lead at the time.

Despite a disappointing par at the par-5 last the 14-time major victor was again pleased with his day's work as he heads to the weekend just four shots from the lead. I guess the guy, one of the Federal Bureau of Investigation guys that was following our group, he was asking him about the rules and he goes, "I'm a cop".

Woods watched Brandt Snedeker nail a 5-iron to a few feet at the 17th, but then the wind backed off. Getting some 15,000 people to quiet down proved almost impossible as Woods tried to figure out what to do.

Woods said the famed "Bear Trap" holes were playing particularly hard but he was happy with his birdie at the 17th.

Unfortunately, terrorist groups like these sometimes make missteps according to their own decisions. However, the United States has supported the YPG to combat the Islamic State in Syria.

"I just missed the rush of competing for a Green Jacket", he said on Wednesday of his injury-enforced absences.

Woods continued to give himself birdie chances but couldn't capitalize at Nos.

Woods was consistent for most of the round, tallying 13 pars and just one bogey.

After pushing his approach right he was saved when the ball bounced back off a spectator's foot, leaving him with an up-and-down for the par.

"I'm right there where I can win a golf tournament", Woods said.

His work around the greens remained solid, but his putter was definitely just lukewarm for most of the day. While the Weather Channel forecasts possible morning rain showers, which could make the greens a little more receptive, sustained winds of around 14 miles per hour are still expected to increase the degree of difficulty on tee and approach shots.

Brandel Chamblee, who once opined that Tiger Woods' golf swing resembled "a dead mackerel wrapped in newspaper", now can't stop gushing about how well the 14-time major champion is slugging the ball. He was virtually certain to miss the cut. Anybody can win this golf tournament right now. A three-putt bogey on the par-4 16th was next, but Tiger rebounded with that birdie on 17, surrounded by water and the track's most hard hole. "Yesterday he hit one on this hole 346, which was the longest tee shot".
