Afternoon update: Tiger making move on back nine

By Ron Published: August 4, 2011

Tiger Woods was all over the course on the front nine, yet parred each hole. He has started the back nine with birdies on Nos. 10 and 11 to move to 2 under.

Jason Day is the leader after shooting a 63 earlier today, holding a 3-shot lead

There are 10 golfers who have shot 4 under or 3 under, and eight more who have that score at the moment. To say it is tight at the top is and understatement.

4:49 p.m.: Tiger is 1 under and is on the 16th green in three shots after putting his drive in the right rough.

4:55 p.m.: It is really showing that the golfers who went off early this morning are dominating the leaderboard. The afternoon heat made the course tougher. Nine players are in the clubhouse with 66s, and four with 67s. Adam Scott is 6 under through 14 holes, 1 back of Jason Day. Nick Watney is 5 under.

4:57 p.m.: Tiger holes 60-foot putt to birdie 16.

4:58 p.m.: Adam Scott birdied his third hole in a row to grab a share of the lead at 7 under. He has two holes to go.

5:09 p.m.: Tiger's fairway accuracy is below 40 percent and in the bottom of five of the tournemant. Yet, he is tied for 17th, 5 shots back.

516 p.m.: Tiger is in the left rough on 18 just near the green. Adam Scott, still tied for lead, is in the left rough on 17.

5:20 p.m.: Tiger hits a 6-footer to finish at 2 under, tied for 17th, 5 shots off the lead of Jason Day and, at the moment, Adam Scott. You can tell Tiger is healthy. He is letting his shots rip but taking nearly 3 months off is taking nearly 3 months off. He likes this course enough and knows how to play it, so I don't expect he will fade this weekend. Darrin Clarke had a horrible round and that is with an eagle on No. 8.
