Tiger Woods (69-77—146)
Tiger Woods’ double-bogey six at the first hole in round two marked the third time in Open Championship history for him to begin a round with a double bogey or worse. In the first round of 2003, Woods opened with a triple bogey, and in the second round of 2007, his day got started with a double bogey.
His 77 in round two marks his highest score at The Open Championship since posting a third-round 81 in 2002.
Today marked the eighth time in major championship history in which Woods has started a round with worse than a bogey.
Had it not been for his birdie at the 18th hole, today would’ve marked just the third time in his Open Championship history to play a round without a single birdie. He did not card a birdie in round three of 1999 and round four of 1995 (as an amateur).
Woods, the 2007 and 2009 FedExCup, enters this week’s Open Championship ranked 212th in the standings. Should he advance to the FedExCup Playoffs, he would become the lowest ranked player entering the Open Championship to qualify for the Playoffs (since 2009 under current structure). The current distinction belongs to Dean Wilson who, in 2010, came into the Open ranked 195th.
Through 36 holes, Woods has hit 18/28 fairways in regulation (58.7 percent) and 25/36 greens (58.8 percent).
