So far, Woods has been at his methodical best, following his game plan in the first two rounds even when Garcia was blowing drivers by him. He’s kept the ball in play, shaped his shots with precision, and made his birdies when they presented themselves.
None of that will matter if he shoots another 75 in the third round as he did at Olympic Club last month. He’s the one who has made the majors his measuring stick, and the record will show that he squandered yet another opportunity in a sport that offers only four of them a year.
His past history tells us never to count him out on a weekend.
His most recent history tells us not to start engraving his name on the claret jug just yet.
