G*dd*mn wedge game is killing me
New day. Fresh greens. Same golf course. And similar results for Tiger Woods in the second round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Friday was almost like déjà vu for Woods, who has won 7 times at Firestone CC — he hit the ball well, but his wedge game stunk and he couldn’t buy a putt, leaving him 13 shots out of the lead.
The scorecard tallied up to a two-over 72, following his even-par 70 in the first round. Woods didn’t hit as many fairways and greens as he did on Thursday, but that wasn’t necessarily what cost him two extra strokes. It was the same thing we’ve seen and the same story we’ve heard for the past few months after posting a crappy — or less than satisfactory — score.
