It good to see TW back on the right track... always love to see TW "dare to attack" attitude Swing

I think Phil Michelson also dare to attack, most of the time.

I doubt TW can win in the Frys.com Open. I would predict that he will finish in the top 10 ...

I am rooting for Ernie Els to win ... He is coming into the final round with 2 shots behind the leader, Briny Baired ...

2 strips of lead tape on his putter save him?

Woods improves drastically with the putter in second round effort at CordeValle

SAN MARTIN, Calif. — If Thursday was one of the worst putting rounds of Tiger Woods‘ life, his second round at the Frys.com Open was almost assured to be an improvement. It was, even though Woods officially took two more strokes than he did in his first trip around CordeValle.

Woods complained after his 2-over 73 on Thursday about his inability to read the greens, putt to their speed compared to the surfaces at home and the nearby Institute and the lack of practice at home with the flat stick. Though no panacea, Woods said a simple modification he made Thursday evening helped him Friday.

“I added two strips of lead on the bottom of it to add a little more weight to get the ball to the hole and fixed my posture again a little bit on the putter. When I did that, I was able to see the line,” he said.

The results were apparent, as Woods did not miss a putt inside six feet on Friday. He missed a critical trio of them in his first round. Woods left two fairly close ones for birdie out of the hole, however, clipping the cup from nine feet at the 17th hole and seven feet at his penultimate hole, the eighth.

Woods also did something on Friday he was not even close to doing the day prior: made a putt greater than 20 feet. The bomb Woods made at the par-4 14th hole doubled as a great bounce back from an uninspiring bogey the hole previous and a catalyst for a 3-hole stretch of birdies that used to seem commonplace.

By comparison, the 24-footer he made on his fifth hole Friday was twice as long as the lengthiest putt he drained yesterday.

The lone glaring miss for Woods was at the shortest hole on the track – the par-3 seventh hole. He hit his approach putt some 10 feet past the pin. That, however, was atoned for with a crucial par make to keep Woods two strokes off the cut line.

Of course, feel with the putter has been fleeting for Woods this season. At the Masters, it came and went in a space of seven holes between the sixth and 12th at Augusta National. For Woods, any space longer than that without having to question the putter is a win.

Final score for tiger 73, 68, 68, 68 for T30.
Not bad, I think we might have a come back if he can fix that putting of his to the old days and reduce the mistake.

How I wish I can play like that.. sigh.
