Woods, a 79-times victor on the PGA Tour, was in control of all facets of his game and wielded a hot putter to record his lowest numerical score on the PGA Tour since 2015. "When that long putt on the 15 went in, I just started leaving", Simpson said. An incredible tee shot on the course's famed par-3 17th hole set up this short birdie putt late in his round.
However, he allowed too much break with his 15-footer for birdie and settled for a 65 - the same score posted by Spieth earlier - with both eight under for the tournament and seven shots behind halfway leader Webb Simpson, who was still over an hour and a half away from his tee time when Woods holed out at 18.
Simpson, 32, progressed to 19-under par and sits seven ahead of New Zealand's Danny Lee, with world number one Dustin Johnson back in third on 10-under. So when a putter as good as Tiger gives himself those chances, it's easy to see how he cruised into the final five holes of the day. "To be eight under through 12, realistically I could have got a couple more out of it and got to 10 for the day, but I will take it".

"Today I felt more comfortable with my overall warm-up". That wasn't that bad a tee shot there at 14 and I ended up in a spot where I had to really, I didn't have much of a shot.
Woods has displayed patience, outwardly at least, in his quest to return to his best.
