Bogeys, bogeys, bogeys.

A scrambling, up-and-down par for Woods at the par-5 fifth. His drive found himself among the fans on the left of the fairway and forced him to pitch back out. From the fairway, his approach drifted left and short. But a well controlled putt across the green set up his par.
Further behind, Webb Simpson has made a fast start with birdies at the third and fourth.
Woods to within five feet at the fourth! Beautiful approach, right into the centre of the green.
Oh no… but the putt lips out around the back. The birdie looked inevitable, but he remains at +1 for the day.
Ironically, his playing partner Shaun Norris was the one to make birdie – despite scrambling from the bank of the creek to the back of the green.
He made the birdie from 40 脚 – what a three!
Morikawa lands a lovely approach into the fifth to within 10 脚, as he looks to get back to even par for his round. Woods made it to the front fringe of the par-three third in two shots but left his birdie putt high. He’s moved onto the fourth and has found the fairway.
Seven major championships have been held at Southern Hills, the last of which was the 2007 PGA Championship won by Tiger Woods.
On all seven occasions, the winner either led or co-led at the halfway stage, so Will Zalatoris will have history on his side when he tees off as the halfway leader later tonight.
Woods gives himself a fighting chance at saving par with a beautiful fade around the tree on the left of the fairway to roll it into the green – but the par putt stops a foot short, so he if left to tap in for bogey-five.
