Three-times major champion Jordan Spieth hit three balls into the water on his outward nine - the back nine - to post a three-over 75 that leaves him in danger of missing his fourth consecutive cut in the event.
The third member of the previous champions trio Rickie Fowler may exclusively shoot 74, whereas one other big-name triumvirate to misfire was that of Rory McIlroy (71), Jordan Spieth (75) and Justin Thomas (73). From there, he missed the green right, which set the tone for the rest of the day, as Woods struggled to convert with short irons in his hand on numerous occasions. "With these greens as soft as they are, I didn't take advantage of the opportunities I had today to really shoot a good number". Six players, including 51-year-old Steve Stricker, are a shot back. He is just one of six players with at least two victories at THE PLAYERS. "I figured I was probably close", he said.
"I didn't know what to expect this year", said Woods on Tuesday about his injury-riddled body.
Despite the eagle on the ninth hole, Woods wouldn't get his first birdie until the par-4 12.
Mickelson, Woods and Fowler all cracked up laughing, and Phil had to back off his putt multiple times because he just could not stop giggling.
Mickelson managed four birdies on his back nine Friday, but closed with three straight bogeys for a 73 that left him well off the cutline.

The quality of the golf did little to keep fans awake.
But playing partner Phil Mickelson will have the weekend off, although he did restore some pride with an excellent front nine that was too late to fix the damage of his expensive finish on Thursday evening, when he dropped seven shots in four holes. I tried to offset it this week by taking it easy, not doing too much, and tried to eat right, tried to do all the right things to hopefully not have it be an issue.
