Here’s what you missed from Round 2 of the Hero World Challenge

December 6, 2019

The Big Cat made some big strides in the Bahamas during the second round of the Hero World Challenge, but he still has some work to do if he’s going to catch the tournament leader.

Here’s everything you missed from Thursday’s action in the Bahamas.

Tiger Woods made a big move

After a roller-coaster round of even-par 72 on Wednesday, Woods steadied the ship with a sizzling six-under-par 66, which tied the low round of the day and launched him six spots up the leaderboard into T5.

Woods’ round included four birdies and an eagle, and zero bogeys — a marked difference from his up-and-down day during Round 1, which included four bogeys, a double, four birdies and an eagle. Woods, six under overall, is now six shots behind tournament leader Patrick Reed’s, who is at 12 under par at the tournament’s halfway point.

Patrick Reed leads by three shots

After firing back-to-back rounds of 66, Reed is three shots clear of his nearest competitor, Gary Woodland.

Reed has only made two bogeys over 36 holes — and has amassed an impressive tally of 14 birdies. A win this week would mark the eighth of his Tour career, and his second of 2019.

Six under is the number to beat — so far

Three players managed rounds of six-under 66 on Thursday: Patrick Reed, Jon Rahm and Tiger Woods. Rahm’s 66 followed a first-round 70, and launched him into T3 alongside Henrik Stenson (69-67).

Only two players managed to fire 66s in the first round: Reed and Gary Woodland.

Can anyone manage a 65 on Friday? Time will tell.
